Municipal Waste Drop Shocking New Video for “Electrified Brain”

  • Jeff Treppel

In case you’re looking for a way to “waste” three minutes and 33 seconds of your Thursday, Municipal Waste have a new video inspired by the two best things in existence: 80s horror movies and metal videos from the glory days of Headbangers Ball. It will melt your face (spoiler!).

Commenting on the new single and video, guitarist Ryan Waste says:

“’Electrified Brain’ is a tale of revenge and redemption, continuing the concept of our song ‘Mental Shock’ rounding out the ‘Deathripper Trilogy.’  It’s about being wrongfully accused and stripped of your rights, only to overcome and break free through the electric power of heavy music. We called upon our friend Norman Cabrera once again to handle the title track music video after the incredible job he did on ‘Slime and Punishment.’ Visually he went above and beyond and it became a much more cinematic experience thanks to Rob Lucas at Wolfpack Studios.” 

Director Norman Cabrera adds about making the video:

“I pulled out all the stops for this video. It’s in the spirit of classic Heavy Metal videos like Ozzy’s Bark at the Moon and Dio’s The Last in Line. Sci Fi-Horror imagery lends itself very well to the vibe of the band. We’re channeling a bit of Cronenberg and Carpenter. The best sci fi movies of the past often take current events and put them in a fantastic setting. The video takes place in a not so distant dystopian future where your individuality can be taken away by a faceless organization. It’s a wild concept but not too far off from our world today.”

Electrified Brain is due out July 1st from Nuclear Blast, and is already available for preorder (or pre-save or whatever).
