Municipal Waste Shares a New Animated Music Video – “Grave Dive”

Municipal Waste shared a new animated video for their single “Grave Dive” from their new album Electrified Brain, out now via Nuclear Blast! Read our review here! Created by Pierre Mousquet, in which the band summons an army of dead fans for a hell-raising concert with cameos by the Toxic Avenger, Lemmy, The Ramones, Skeletor, and countless others.Watch it now!


Commenting on the video, vocalist Tony Foresta says:

“We are very excited to premiere another video off the new record. We thought it would be a good idea to bring back Pierre and IMOV studios for another animated film since we loved the last one so much. This video has more Easter eggs than the holiday where Jesus died.”


Animator and director Mousquet adds:

“Almost ten years after “You’re Cut Off,” I had the chance, once again, to dive into Municipal Waste’s awesome universe to create the “Grave Dive” animated video. The song gave me endless inspiration resulting in too many ideas to fit in a 2:32 long video. So don’t blink!”

Since 2001, MUNICIPAL WASTE have uncompromisingly stuck to their guns as hard-partying and even harder-hitting torchbearers of 21st century thrash metal. The Richmond, VA quintet Tony Foresta [vocals], Ryan Waste [guitar], Philip “Landphil” Hall [bass], Dave Witte [drums], and Nick Poulos [guitar] – have transformed from a cult favourite into metal mainstays for a generation. Along the way, Decibel touted ‘The Art of Partying’ in its coveted Hall of Fame and asserted it “revved up interest in thrash and inspired a fresh wave of youthful new bands.” Metal Hammer christened ‘The Art of Partying’ one of “The 50 Greatest Thrash Metal Albums Ever,” while Loudwire pegged ‘The Art of Partying’ as “The Best Thrash Album of 2007” and ‘Hazardous Mutation’ as “The Best Thrash Album of 2005.” The guys have sold out countless shows on multiple continents and piled up tens of millions of streams in the process. 2017’s ‘Slime and Punishment’ bowed in the Top 3 of the Billboard Heatseekers Albums Chart, and The Last Rager EP only accelerated their momentum in 2019.
