Municipal Waste reveal The Fatal Feast – Waste In Space artwork

Municipal Waste have revealed their official artwork for their new album ‘The Fatal Feast – Waste In Space,’ which is expected to be release in North America on 10th April and throughout Europe on 13th April.

Justin Osbourn of Slasher Design worked on the artwork for the band and he answered several questions relating to the artwork:

Did you hear any new music before you created this bad boy?
Nope, I wasn’t given any of the new song demos beforehand. Ryan [Waste, guitarist] kinda gave me an overall theme and certain elements that they wanted to see in the artwork. Being a fan of the band, I just took that and added what I thought would enhance it further.

Why does the guy being eaten resemble Captain James Tiberius Kirk?
It’s kinda weird that you say that… I happen to be quite the fan of the original Star Trek series. It would have totally made sense for that to be Captain Kirk being devoured, but unfortunately, that was never my intent. Perhaps it was subconsciously, though? How ‘bout we just tell everyone it is.

Anything hidden in the artwork (a la Derek Riggs/Iron Maiden covers) that fans should keep an eye out for?
Sorta. The number of cheap beer cans/bottles laying around on the cover are just about the right number I would drink on a night I would call a Pretty Damn Good Night. Oh, and there’s an empty half pint of Viaka Vodka in there as well; it’s just that it’s laying behind The Waste-oids devouring Captain Kirk. Ha ha.
