With a recipe consisting of gore, thrill, cannibalism, shredding and a pinch of space travel, Municipal Waste get carnal and creepy in an explosion of epic horror with their new music video for “The Fatal Feast.” The track comes from their upcoming album, The Fatal Feast LP, out April 10th on Nuclear Blast.
Directed by Jeff Speed of Halo Of Flies, “The Fatal Feast” was shot in Los Angeles on the former set of the space western television series, “Firefly.” Within the setting of an old waste station lost in space for 17 years, the video flashes between scenes of the band rocking in the space station bay to mutilating and consuming human organs to bloodily playing with instruments replaced by intestines and spinal columns. Astronauts, skeletons, blood, torture and of course, speedy metal punk run rabid in this forceful piece of film.
On getting to work with Municipal Waste for a second time, Jeff Speed explained, “One glimpse at this video and you will understand why my brother Chris [Speed, Production Designer] and I love to work with these guys. Anything goes! They have a great sense of humor, shredding tunes and bloodlust that is only matched by our own. Accepting the invitation to collaborate on more debauchery with Municipal Waste was a no-brainer. A cannibalistic space voyage?! Where do we sign? [...] I hope the world is hungry because the FEAST will be festering on their plates and minds for a long time.”
The band is equally thrilled with the collaboration. Vocalist Tony Foresta remarked, “We’ve been wanting to work with Jeff again since we did the ‘Sadistic Magician’ video with him years ago. We felt that his vision and talent was exactly what we needed to help tell the tale of this cannibalistic space voyage. We hope this video makes people headbang, laugh, and puke all at the same time.” Guitarist Ryan Waste added, “As a huge sci-fi horror movie enthusiast, it was amazing to work on this type of film set. Jeff Speed and his crew have really raised the bar with this video and we couldn’t be happier. Prepare for space terror and feast on our latest clip!”
Municipal Waste is currently out on the road for their “Return Of The World Maggot” tour featuring guests Ghoul and Legacy of Disorder. To feast on them yourselves, check out the remaining dates on their tour schedule, and check out their terrifyingly awesome video below:
