FANGORIA ENTERTAINMENT is very proud to announce that we will be premiering the new MUNICIPAL WASTE music video for the track “Acid Sentence” off of their newest album, MASSIVE AGGRESSIVE at booth #1736 at the 2010 San Diego Comic Con International. FANGORIA film crews helmed this gruesome video, which is sure to be a favorite with MUNICIPAL WASTE and FANGORIA fans alike.
“It seemed like a perfect fit,” says video director David McKendry. “The FANGORIA staff has always been huge WASTE fans, and when we heard they wanted to shoot a horror oriented video, we knew FANGO had to be part of the action.”
Bass player Phil Hall stated, “I have been a big fan of FANGORIA for years, so when I heard they were interested in producing a music video for MUNICIPAL WASTE, I was stoked. Just like any metal head, I am a fan of classic horror movies and who else would know that genre better than FANGORIA! I think the dark and gritty vibe of the new video fits the atmosphere of the song very well. I hope all the WASTE fans out there get a kick out of it!”
The song “Acid Sentence” is from the band’s most recent album, MASSIVE AGGRESSIVE, released by Earache Records. Based on the legendary serial killer John Haigh, the song/video center around a serial killer who bathes his victims in acid. The video was shot over several weeks in May and June of 2010 and features the band as well as plenty of FANGORIA style gore. The gore and body parts were provided by the world-renowned Dapper Cadaver, whose fine gore craftsmanship has graced TV shows like BONES and DEXTER.
Drummer Dave Witte on the collaboration- “It was a huge thrill to work with FANGORIA as they’ve been totally supportive to many artists over the years from Clive Barker to Romero and beyond, people who have uncompromising visions with their art and are pros all across the board. To me, as a fan and a musician, I couldn’t be more thrilled that FANGORIA wants to support what we are doing with our music.”
FANGORIA will debut the video at the FANGORIA Booth, #1736, at 3pm on Saturday, July 24th. After this, the video will play once every hour until the end of the event. Director David McKendry will be at the booth during the premiere to answer questions and discuss the video shoot. To arrange an interview with David McKendry, please email email@example.com
