Last Friday, Richmond Virginia’s MUNICIPAL WASTE unleashed their latest piece of toxic detritus, Slime And Punishment, via Nuclear Blast Records.
Today, Phil_and Tony discuss the engineering of the album. Watch the trailer here:
Phil ‘Landphil’ Hall comments about engineering, “Instead of being at the mercy of another engineer,_I can just get the music done in a way that I want to get it done. I think that it is a very good decision for anyone out that’s interested in being in a band to try and learn how to use the recording technology that is available out there. It is much easier to get into than you think. As an artist, you are afforded a lot more possibilities with your music once you have an a good understanding of tracking and how audio engineering works.”
The album is be available in the following formats:
Mail Order Edition
Limited Edition Gatefold Clear Vinyl
Limited Edition Gatefold NB Anniversary Green Vinyl

The cover artwork for the sixth album was created by the bands good friend, Andrei Bouzikov. This is the fourth cover he has created for them as he was responsible for the art for Massive Aggressive, The Art Of Partying, and the split with TOXIC HOLOCAUST – Toxic Waste.
Slime And Punishment is the first Waste album to be engineered by bassist Phil ‘Landphil’ Hall at Blaze of Torment Studios in Richmond, VA. Mixing and mastering was completed by Bill Metoyer (SLAYER, W.A.S.P., LIZZY BORDEN and DARK ANGEL) in Hollywood, CA.
