Municipal Waste
Slime And Punishment
July 2017
Released: 2017, Nuclear Blast
Rating: 4.5/5
Reviewer: John Haseltine

The wait is finally over guys and gals. After a five year hiatus due to many life factors, the crossover thrash masters are back with SLIME AND PUNISHMENT. This album is a relentless offering of some very mind blowing metal.

Okay, so maybe some of you don’t think of their style as mind blowing and maybe it is not. But if you consider the intensity that comes through the speakers at almost breakneck speed, it can come across as a little mind blowing. Enough with the mind blowing already! Municipal Waste’s latest gives us 14 new tracks of thrashing fury with no track being any longer then about 3 minutes. So if you do the math: 14 tracks X 3 minutes = not long enough. Yep, just about 28 minutes total. It so leaves you wanting more. But one beauty about it is this is such a great album, it works out fine just putting it on repeat a couple times. Municipal Waste delivers up their 80’s infused crossover thrash blend flawlessly. I can’t even go about as to pointing out a stand out track as the whole album shines from start to finish. This is one of those sonic feasts that make you wonder why you just trashed your room while listening to it. You know what I’m talking about. And it is one of the reasons why it is one of my favorite genres.

The time for SLIME AND PUNISHMENT is now!
