MUNICIPAL WASTE's sixth studio album, "Slime And Punishment", was released a year ago via Nuclear Blast. The disc was the first WASTE album to be engineered by bassist Phil "Landphil" Hall at Blaze Of Torment Studios in Richmond, Virginia. Mixing and mastering was completed by Bill Metoyer (SLAYER, W.A.S.P., LIZZY BORDEN and DARK ANGEL) in Hollywood, California.
The cover artwork for "Slime And Punishment" was created by the band's good friend, Andrei Bouzikov. This was the fourth cover he 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".
