It has been five years since the last record for Richmond, Virginia crossover thrashers Municipal Waste. 'Slime and Punishment' is the first album to feature second guitarist Nick Poulos (Bat, Volture). Nothing much has changed with the moshers, evident with this 14-song album clocking in at a mere 29-minutes. Fans may enjoy the group's firm embrace of crossover; punk angst meets old-school thrash. For me, I have gotten a little exhausted with this whole scene. I could use less speed and more wallop...yet this band has half a million Facebook followers. Some things never get old.
