Municipal Waste Frontman On Thrash And Slime

This past month, many of the biggest names in hardcore, crossover and punk banded together to take part in this year's Persistence tour. Headlined by Sick Of It All and featuring the likes of Walls Of Jericho and Incite, along with Napalm Death at the London show, the trek rampaged across Europe before arriving at the English capital. One of the most anticipated bands on the bill was Virginia crossover thrash metal favourites Municipal Waste, who are currently promoting their latest album, "Slime And Punishment."

Their FFF daytime appearance marked the end of a North American tour, but the band was gearing up for another tour, this time with Napalm Death, Voivod, Exhumed, Ringworm and Black Crown Initiate.
