NAPALM DEATH picture
Napalm Death are an English extreme metal band from Birmingham, formed in 1981. The band was formed in the village of Meriden (near Birmingham), England in May 1981 by Nicholas Bullen and Miles Ratledge. Although other groups had previously played fast and aggressive music with a similar style, Napalm Death are credited with defining the grindcore genre through their blend of hardcore, crust punk and death metal musical structures, aggressive playing, short song lengths, fast tempos, and deep guttural vocals. The group coined the terms 'grind' and 'grindcore' to describe the music they played with particular reference to the sound of American industrial group Swans. The group were included in the Guinness Book of World Records as writers of the shortest recorded song ("You Suffer" from their first album Scum). Napalm Death are listed by Nielsen Soundscan as the seventh best-selling death metal band in the United States.

NAPALM DEATH Reviews

NAPALM DEATH Scum

Album · 1987 · Grindcore
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
SilentScream213
People define the word “heavy” in different ways, but if you want to define it as “playing as fast and as dissonantly as possible” then Scum was the heaviest album in the world when it came out, inventing a new genre so abrasive it couldn’t fit into Hardcore Punk nor Death Metal. Grindcore is, at its core, just taking music extremities to 11 at all costs, and Scum was the first Grindcore album. It's almost impossible to follow song structure at this point as utter chaos takes center stage. This record is therein about 28 minutes of 28 songs of that; no more, no less. Nothing else to say.

NAPALM DEATH Order of the Leech

Album · 2002 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Order of the Leech" is the 10th full-length studio album by UK death metal/grindcore act Napalm Death. The album was released through Spitfire Records in October 2002. Although guitarist Jesse Pintado is credited as part of the lineup, he actually didn´t perform and all guitars are therefore played by Mitch Harris.

"Order of the Leech" more or less continues the death metal/grindcore style of "Enemy of the Music Business (2000)", although it leans slightly more to the death metal side of the band´s sound than the case was on the predecessor. Napalm Death still play a lot of hardcore punk oriented riffs and rhythms and grindcore blasts though, and maybe the death metal influence is actually a result of the sound production, which is a bit more suited for death metal than it is for grindcore. Especially the bass drums feature a tone that I associate more with death metal than with grindcore. It´s overall a well produced release, but personally I enjoyed the sound on the predecessor a great deal more.

The material on the 12 track, 44:42 is relatively well written, but it´s not as instantly catchy as much of the material on the predecessor. I have a hard time mentioning standout tracks other the album opener "Continuing War on Stupidity", but that doesn´t mean the other tracks aren´t well composed. Napalm Death never swore to regular vers/chorus structures and as a consequence of that their material can at times be quite inaccessible. repeated listens always help, but "Order of the Leech" is still not one of their most memorable albums.

We´re thankfully not back to the mid-90s failed experimentation issues, and "Order of the Leech" is enjoyable enough while it plays. The musicianship is as usual on a high level, and Mark "Barney" Greenway delivers his barking raw vocals with bite and conviction, so all is well in those departments. Some tracks could just have been a bit more memorable and the album overall a bit more varied. A 3.5 star (70%) rating is still deserved (and I´m probably being a bit too harsh here).

NAPALM DEATH Enemy of the Music Business

Album · 2000 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Enemy of the Music Business" is the 9th full-length studio album by UK death metal/grindcore act Napalm Death. The album was released through Spitfire Records in September 2000. The title of the album refers to the band´s at the time lack of enthusiasm about the music business at large and especially their acrimonious split with Earache Records. Although the mid- to late 90s weren´t easy years for Napalm Death, in terms of critical praise from fans and critics, they soldiered on and released albums on a regular basis and toured relentlessly. Something must have happened between "Words from the Exit Wound (1998)" and "Enemy of the Music Business" though, because there´s been quite a big stylistic change between the two albums.

Already on "Fear, Emptiness, Despair (1994)", Napalm Death began to incorporate groove metal riffs and rhythms to their music. Something which was further developed upon and incorporated on "Diatribes (1996)" and on "Inside the Torn Apart (1997)". On those albums the band´s trademark blast beats were also very few, but "Words from the Exit Wound (1998)" proved a sort of transition album, as it again featured some blast beats and hardcore punk/grindcore influences and less groove oriented riffs and rhythms (they are still a dominant element on the album though). The transition is complete on "Enemy of the Music Business", which doesn´t feature a single groove oriented riff or rhythm, and again features dominant use of blast beats, hardcore punk/grindcore influences and just generally much more bite and conviction, than the last couple of releases. This is a band ending a period of fatigue and failed experimentation and returning to what they do best. Play raw grindcore with death metal elements and social/political lyrics.

Napalm Death are positively on fire throughout "Enemy of the Music Business". There´s an urgency here to prove themselves, which wasn´t present on most on the above mentioned releases. Mark "Barney" Greenway´s raw barking vocals sound pissed off and powerful and the rest of the band sound inspired and furious too. This is not simple and aggressive grindcore/death metal though, and while the band certainly deliver their music with the right amount of aggression, the 14 tracks on the the 48:35 minutes long album are composed in a very intelligent and intriguing manner.

Napalm Death have generally always stayed clear of regular vers/chorus structures and continue to do so on "Enemy of the Music Business", and even in the most simple tracks, where there are some repetition, the band almost always throw in a curve ball to keep the listener on his/her toes. They successfully challenge conventions and strike the balance between raw recognisable aggression and demanding compositions well. The best example of that is probably "Next on the List", but there are other examples of intelligent and challenging song structures featured on the album. "Necessary Evil" is an example of one of the more simple and memorable tracks on the album.

The sound production is handled by Simon Efemey & Russ Russel, and they´ve created a powerful, raw, and detailed sound, which suits the music perfectly. The more polished Colin Richardson productions of the last couple of releases are now only a distant memory. To my ears "Enemy of the Music Business" is the album which saved Napalm Death´s career and got them back on track again, but it´s not only a great album, because it follows a string of not so interesting releases, it´s also a high quality album in it´s own right and a 4.5 star (90%) rating is deserved.

NAPALM DEATH Fear, Emptiness, Despair

Album · 1994 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Fear, Emptiness, Despair" is the 5th full-length studio album by UK grindcore/death metal act Napalm Death. The album was released through Earache Records in May 1994. It´s the successor to "Utopia Banished" from 1992, and features the exact same lineup, who recorded that album. That was a first in the band´s history up until then. A history which had otherwise been characterized by multible lineup changes since the band´s inception in the early 80s.

The stylistic changes between releases have also been plenty throughout the years, so it´s no surprise that "Fear, Emptiness, Despair" has a very different sound to "Utopia Banished (1992)", although it´s still unmistakably the sound of Napalm Death. While "Utopia Banished (1992)" was a return to the band´s grindcore roots, albeit in a more controlled and death metal oriented style, the grindcore elements have been scaled back on "Fear, Emptiness, Despair" in favour of a groove oriented death metal style with the occassional blasting grindcore section.

While earlier releases have always featured an aggressive atmosphere and a strong feeling of indignation, "Fear, Emptiness, Despair" also reeks of bleakness and despair. There´s a sadness here about the state of world, which transcends anger. Napalm Death simply seem to have adopted a more reflective way of expressing themselves, beyond just being aggressive. And that should not be misinterpreted as if this isn´t an aggressive release, because it certainly is both aggressive and brutal. The aggression is just balanced with more bleak atmospheric moments.

The material on the 11 track, 39:12 minutes long album is well written, relatively catchy (given some spins), and very powerful. Highlights include among others "Twist the Knife (Slowly)", "Hung", and "State of Mind", but the occasionally ultra fast closing track "Throwaway" deserves a mention too. There aren´t a single sub par track featured on the album and to my ears it´s a consistently high quality release. "Fear, Emptiness, Despair" is in fact one of Napalm Death´s most varied releases and to my ears also one of their overall most memorable ones. The addition of groove oriented riffs and rhythms to their sound has really spiced things up. The word groove may scare off a few deathgrind heads, but this is not groove metal by any means. The grooves are not simple and they are generally delivered with great technical skill and adventurous riffing, which at times gives it an almost abstract edge.

Not that it wasn´t abundantly clear from listening to "Utopia Banished (1992)", but Danny Herrera is one hell of a skilled drummer and his contributions to this album is one of the great assets of "Fear, Emptiness, Despair". He is not only an incredibly fast playing rhythm machine, but also a very creative mind when it comes to composing drum patterns, and you´ll find some very inventive drumming throughout the album. The rest of the band are high level musicians too, and everything is delivered with the right organic professionalism. Lead vocalist Mark "Barney" Greenway continues his hoarse throaty bark from the predecessor, and while I would still characterize his vocals as growls, they don´t sound much like he did on "Harmony Corruption (1990)" (or his years with Benediction). Personally it took me quite a few years to learn to appreciate his new approach to singing, but I get it now. It´s all about grindcore/hardcore credibility and not being associated too much with death metal. He is simply going for a more "natural" way of delivering growling vocals, which has more to do with raw hardcore shouting than it has to do with guttural death metal growling.

The sound production which was handled by Pete Coleman (and mixed by Colin Richardson), is raw, brutal, bleak, and quite original sounding. The drums feature what I would characterize as a "cardboard" sound, with an odd sounding snare drum tone, but somehow the drums fit the bleak despair of the music well. It´s cold and harsh sounding, just like the music. The lyrics of course follow suit and are definitely not about light topics. As mentioned above Napalm Death seem determined to bring those guilty in injustice, corruption, and power abuse to the attention of the world. "Armageddon X 7" is for example about the fact that there are enough nuclear weapons in the world, to blow up our planet seven times. Now why is that necessary? and isn´t it just a horrible thought? That´s the kind of topics which are dealt with on this album. And always in a clever and sophisticated fashion, which reeks of authentic indignation instead of artsy pretence.

Now I know "Fear, Emptiness, Despair" isn´t always well regarded among fans of the band, mainly as a consequence of the groove influence, but looked upon a bit more objectively, it´s a very original sounding release, both in terms of the band´s own discography but certainly also in a broader metal scene perspective. There´s really nothing like it out there and just for the courage and boldness to release something like that Napalm Death deserves a lot of praise. Add to that high level musicianship, adventurous and creative songwriting, and a suiting dark and heavy sound production, and "Fear, Emptiness, Despair" is a high quality release through and through. A 4.5 star (90%) rating is deserved.

NAPALM DEATH Utopia Banished

Album · 1992 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Utopia Banished" is the 4th full-length studio album by UK grindcore/death metal act Napalm Death. The album was released through Earache Records in June 1992. One lineup change has happened since the release of "Harmony Corruption (1990)" as drummer Mick Harris has been replaced by Danny Herrera. Mick Harris was the only member of the lineup who had appared on each of the first three albums, which means that "Utopia Banished" is the first Napalm Death album to not feature a single original (album releasing) member.

Stylistically there´s been a couple of changes since "Harmony Corruption (1990)" too, although the music is still unmistakably the sound of Napalm Death. The music style on "Harmony Corruption (1990)" was grind infuced death metal featuring a time typical Scott Burns created Morrisound Recording sound production, while "Utopia Banished" was recorded at The Windings in Wrexham, Wales with producer Colin Richardson, and stylistically features a grindcore style with some death metal leanings. So the scale has tipped back towards grindcore and away from death metal. Production wise there is also a major difference between the dark and ultra brutal sound of "Harmony Corruption (1990)" and the more raw, noisy, and organic sounding "Utopia Banished".

Most material on 15 track, 38:47 minutes long album are fast-paced grindcore tracks, but there is generally great rhythmic variation in the music, so there are often mid-paced brutal grooves and even hardcore punk oriented parts featured too. An example of a track with a memorable mid-paced groove is "The World Keeps Turning". The closing track "Contemptuous" shows a slow industrial tinged side of Napalm Death, which at the time was a new element to their sound. But as mentioned most tracks are furiously fast-paced grindcore with Mark "Barney" Greenway´s semi-growling intelligible barking raw vocals in front. His vocal style here is quite different from the brutal growling vocal style he used on "Harmony Corruption (1990)" (and in his Benediction days too), which again increases the grindcore connection and decreases the death metal ditto. For the first time guitarist Mitch Harris also contributes vocals to a Napalm Death release, as he occassionally delivers high pitched aggressive screams to compliment Greenway´s deeper shouting delivery ("Got Time to Kill" is an example of that).

Considering their relatively "primitive" grindcore past, it´s safe to say Napalm Death have grown as musicians on "Utopia Banished". It was already apparent that they had aquired a couple of new tricks on "Harmony Corruption (1990)", but "Utopia Banished" sets new standards in terms of musicianship. New drummer Danny Herrera plays with militant precision but also with a vital organic touch. Vital in the sense that it enhances rawness and grindcore/hardcore authenticity. The guitar riffs are adventurous for the style (and often pretty original too), and the heavy über distorted bass playing by Shane Embury is also pivotal for the sound of the album.

So "Utopia Banished" is a high quality release on all parameters. It´s very well produced, well played, and the material is powerful and creative in nature. There are a couple of tracks on the album, which don´t stand out as much as the most memorable material (highlights of the album include tracks like "I Abstain", "Dementia Access", "The World Keeps Turning", "Got Time to Kill", and "Contemptuous"), but often it has to do with the most memorable tracks featuring some catchy hooks or vocal phrases, because none of the material on the album is easily accessible. Even experienced extreme metal listeners can break their necks on Napalm Death, because of the relentlessly aggressive and abrasive nature of their music. Given enough time and spins "Utopia Banished" does become slightly more accessible and the tracks easier to tell apart, but it´s an album which requires something from its listener. To my ears it´s intelligent and quite sophisticated grindcore which fortunately never becomes pretentious and a 4 star (80%) rating is deserved.

NAPALM DEATH Punishment in Capitals

Movie · 2003 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Kingcrimsonprog
Punishment In Capitals is a 2002 live DVD (also available on CD) by British extreme metal icons Napalm Death, released after their triumphant Enemy Of The Music Business album won back the praise of fans and critics after their experimental string of records in the nineties.

The band play a mixture of every era in their career up to that point, the catchy nineties singles ‘Breed To Breathe,’ and ‘Greed Killing,’ sit side by side with mid era death inspired fare such as ‘Suffer The Children,’ and ‘World Keeps Turning,’ which blends against the band’s early grindcore material era like ‘Scum,’ ‘Lucid Fairy Tale,’ and the famous ‘You Suffer,’ in a set list which also leans heavily on the band’s then newest, and still arguably best album Enemy Of The Music Business.

Standout tracks include an energetic version of ‘Hung,’ as well as ‘Can’t Play Won’t Play,’ and ‘Narcoleptic,’ which was as yet unreleased at the time of recording. With a set-list of this caliber, Punishment In Capitals should be a rewarding viewing experience for most Napalm Death fans and would serve well as an introduction to the band for potential fans as well.

Interestingly, the DVD recording retains all the dead air, waiting out-of-breathe and other non-musical moments in between tracks, presenting you the gig as it actually happened and not inter-cutting the show with outside material to create some false sense of professionalism or excitement. This is a double edged sword as it is commendable but may still irritate viewers raised on slicker, fast paced major label DVD releases.

The production is fairly good in terms of audio recording quality and mix, with simple camera work and editing covering the visual side of things. Although not the most impressive looking DVD ever released, it serves well for Napalm Death to deliver an energetic a sweaty performance. My only major gripe is that for the first half of the show shots of drummer Danny Herrera are very few and far between, but this is remedied later on.

There are a fair amount of extras too, including two bootleg quality recordings in Tokyo from 1996, a six track selection from a Chilean gig in 1997 as well as a hidden Easter Egg (a live-in-a-TV-studio version of ‘If The Truth Be Known,’ accessible by making the image’s eyes glow red my navigating the menu.) In addition to the musical extras there is also a documentary, which while not masterfully crafted is worth at least one watch, covering topics such as Barney’s haircut, the effect of foreign food on the bowels and the charity for which this gig was in aide of.

Overall, Punishment In Capitals is a worthwhile DVD purchase that will give you a good selection of Napalm Death material, both in the concert itself and with a nice selection of extras. Definitely recommended viewing for fans of the band.
