Bio: Municipal Waste

Born in the sewers of Richmond, Virginia during 2000, with the aim of spreading the shred, Municipal Waste played their first gig at a Richmond New Year's Eve Keg party in 2000/2001. Blamed for inciting a small riot, Brendan Trache, Andy Harris, Tony Foresta and Ryan Waste went down a storm. As a result, the four swiftly started touring in small clubs; their blazing fast, raw thrash drew from the tradition of DRI, Suicidal Tendencies, 'Animosity'-era Corrosion Of Conformity, Nuclear Assault and Attitude Adjustment.   Graduating to the road from the dirty bunker type garage behind Ryan's house (a place where he used to put on punk and metal shows), Municipal Waste toured incessantly throughout 2001/2 in the USA and Mexico. The band also released two split records - one 7" with Bad Acid Trip, the other being a 12" with Crucial Unit; they also had tracks on a number of compilations.   Municipal Waste had already succeeded in spreading their shred across the ocean, becoming favourites on the BBC Radio 1's 'Lock-Up and 'Rock Show' programmes, They're also firm favourites with audiences around the world, thanks to their relentless touring regime and insane live shows.   In 2006, Municipal Waste played with Sick Of It All, around Europe, and also blasted Australia from coast to coast. They also played the UK's prestigious Reading and Leeds Festivals on the Lock-Up stage, and set off on their biggest US tour yet, with GWAR. 2007 sees Municipal Waste touring with Destruction in the USA, before going into the studio, with producer Zeuss, to record their next thrash masterpiece. In April and May, the band will be touring with The Haunted in Europe. Check out www.facethewaste.com for up to the minute updates from the 'Waste.

Bio: Napalm Death

27 years of grindcore ultra-violence, 27 years of being one of the hardest working, hardest touring bands on this miserable planet, NAPALM DEATH's conviction, energy and belief in spontaneous, outspoken yet extreme music is far from being watered down. Time Waits For No Slave, the band;s 13th studio album (excluding the cover album Leaders Not Followers Pt.2) marks no exception, as long as this is a world gone wrong, NAPALM DEATH will be utilizing their artistic arsenal to attack those in charge, no matter if their fanaticism stems from a political, religious or simply greedy motivation.

On Time Waits For No Slave the legendary fathers of grindcore explore fundamental aspects of our so-called modern life and point out that ideas of servitude are still existent in the allegedly tolerant, liberal society we live in. Despite the old cliché that "we are living in the 21st century" for one thing, women are still sneered at, treated like second-class citizens and viewed in some quarters as baby machines rather than beings in their own right. Giving up our own ideals, wishes and desires to fit into the all too tight conventions still prevalent today might be a very general sounding subject, but the question is: if our freedom is true to the meaning of the word, this is something that affects us all!

Once again, NAPALM DEATH's concerns are realised through intense, devastatingly brutal songs that venture into groovier, neckbreaking mid-tempo passages to allow the listener to take a breath before vicious blast beats pummel you out of existence. The new material was arranged in intensive rehearsals in a trusty old lock-up room at Robannas rehearsal studio in Birmingham. Soon after, the band roared into the studio. The new effort was engineered and recorded by Russ Russell and produced by Russ Russell and Napalm Death at Foel Studios, Llanfair Caereinon, Wales. Further recording, overall production and album mixing / mastering was finally hammered out at Parlour Studios, Kettering, Northamptonshire, England. A special treat is included on the limited edition of the album as the bonus track "Omnipresent Knife In Your Back" sees bassist Embury also handling the guitars, Mitch Harris switching from guitars to drums and drummer Danny Herrera on bass.

While NAPALM DEATH is a prominent example on how to put words into action and has taken part in several benefit-based activities in the past, vocalist Mark "Barney" Greenway is also engaged in fighting for musicians' rights through the Musician's Union (a UK-based trade union) and strives for fairness for music followers via the same organisation. Renowned for their ceaseless touring activities and stellar live performances, following the album's release NAPALM DEATH will be promoting Time Waits For No Slave live worldwide - remaining at the helm of today's extreme music scene and humbly yet ferociously solidifying their legendary status once again!
