Equipped with a crushing sound that will implode both your soul and skull, Richmond Virginia's MUNICIPAL WASTE barrel back onto the scene with their latest piece of toxic detritus, Slime And Punishment. Tony Foresta and Phil "Landphil" Hall recently discussed what it was like recording at Phil's studio, Blaze of Torment.
Check the video out here:
"Tracking at home makes it a lot less stressful," comments Phil "Landphil" Hall. "We don't have to worry about looking at the clock or answering to anybody else's schedule. We just set our own schedule and make the album happen in a way that is convenient for us.."
Slime And Punishment will be released on June 23rd via Nuclear Blast Records.
