Napalm Death Announce European/UK Tour

Napalm Death have announced a European/UK tour. This run will take place before their previously announced North American tour with Municipal Waste.

Mark “Barney” Greenway commented:

“The stinky van is calling again, and this summer looks to me like we’re reaching more parts of Europe than we have done in quite a few summers. Macedonia in July looks to be one that sticks out, as I recall that our last gig there was in the midst of the miserable Balkans war – it was that long ago. On another note, I know people are probably wondering about the next album.

It is coming, we promise. Unforeseen circumstances and the kind of recurring touring schedule you see in front of your eyes have conspired to string it out quite a bit. It’s gonna be a multi-faceted rasper though, I think. Some nice ‘n’ quirky cover songs too. All will be revealed soon – just getting on with artwork and last couple of lyrics and all the usual window dressing.

Alongside that, if it comes off, a nifty associated split release with a very-definitely-not-grindcore band is in the planning, which will neatly skip around convention and stereotype. And why not. Cheers all.”

Shane Embury On New Napalm Death Record: “I Don’t Think The Album Will Be Released Until Early 2020”

During an interview with Extreme Metal Festival News, Napalm Death’s Shane Embury offered an update on the band’s new album. The effort is almost finished, but the bassist said he thinks they are going to wait until early 2020 to release it.

Embury said the following:

“The music for the new album has been recorded now since June of last year and it was done in two sessions. Mitch did come over and record guitars on the new record, but all the compositions were written by myself, which was quite a challenge to make it all flow but at the same time hopefully have diversity, which I think it has. Barn has nearly recorded all his vocal parts.

We have been playing so many shows in support to ‘Apex’ and, of course, the ‘Coded Smears And More Uncommon Slurs’ compilation, and there’s more shows already booked coming up towards the end of September, so we have decided to take our time with this album. We have a strong amazing album title, but I don’t think the album will be released now until early 2020.”

Barney Greenway Says He Is “More Or Less Halfway Through” With Vocals For The New Napalm Death Album

During a recent interview with Metal Underground, Barney Greenway offered an update on the new Napalm Death album. According to him, he is “more or less halfway through” with vocals for the effort.

Greenway said the following:

“Most of the music is done. I’ve been working on vocals. I’m more or less halfway through. So there’s a bit more to do. But, of course, then we’ve gotta look at things like artwork and all the various things.

“The thing with NAPALM is after this many albums, it can’t just be something you just throw out there. Like the artwork, for example, you’ve gotta use your imagination a little bit and try to express it in different ways.

“The last couple of album sleeves were fucking great, to be honest. I mean, I really liked them a lot. They really expressed what we wanted to say in different ways. So I’d definitely like to do that with the next one.

“To me, [the cover art] has to be confrontational, and it has to be extreme. So it requires a bit of thought. We’ve been speaking with Frode [Sylthe], the [‘Apex Predator – Easy Meat’] artist — he’s gonna do the next one. It’s a matter of where we go from here, really. Because we’ve looked at a hundred different things so far to try to get some ideas, and nothing is jumping off the page yet. Something will come in the end.”

Concert Review: Slayer, Lamb Of God, Anthrax, Testament, & Napalm Death In San Jose, CA

On August 26, I attended the final date of the second leg of Slayer’s farewell tour at the SAP Center in San Jose, CA and it was an insane show.

Grindcore legends Napalm Death kicked off the night with a sick set. The group played about 12 tracks, a third of which were off their album “Scum,” including their one second hit “You Suffer.” The highlight of the group’s set was their cover of Dead Kennedys’ “Nazi Punks Fuck Off,” which was preceded by a cool speech from frontman Barney Greenway who called for “equality for all human beings without exception.”

After Napalm Death, it was time for the Bay Area’s own Testament. The band burst onto the stage with the title track to their latest album “Brotherhood Of The Snake” before transitioning into “Rise Up” off “Dark Roots Of Earth.” After that, they pretty much stuck to the classics, much to the crowd’s approval. Alex Skolnick and Eric Peterson’s guitar work was amazing as always and Chuck Billy’s voice sounded more powerful than ever. The highlights from their set included: “”Into The Pit,” “Over The Wall,” and “Practice What You Preach.”

After a short intermission, Iron Maiden’s “The Number Of The Beast” could be heard blasting throughout the arena and as soon as the music faded, Anthrax took the stage and started rocking the intro to Pantera’s “Cowboys From Hell,” before launching into “Caught In A Mosh.” The band were one of the most energetic acts of the night and they had the crowd going crazy. Joey Belladonna’s vocals were on point the whole set and the musicianship between Scott Ian, Charlie Benante, Frank Bello, and Jonathan Donais was impeccable. Their performance mainly consisted of their hits with “Evil Twin” off their latest album “For All Kings” mixed in. Highlights from their set included: “Madhouse,” their hit cover of “Antisocial,” and their closer “Indians,” which was completed by the “Cowboys From Hell” outro.

After Anthrax, it was time for Lamb Of God to tear things up. The group’s set began with “Omerta” before they broke into “Ruin.” Frontman Randy Blythe put on a great performance with high jumps and harsh vocals. It’s also worth noting that guest drummer Art Cruz (Winds Of Plague, Prong) did a tremendous job filling in for Chris Adler, who was unable to make the tour. As usual, John Campbell, Willie Adler, and Mark Morton, were on top of their game as well. Highlights from the band’s set included: “512,” “Now You’ve Got Something To Die For,” “Laid To Rest” and the closing track “Redneck.”

After Lamb Of God, it was time for the headliners of the evening, the almighty Slayer. The band’s set began with crosses projected on the curtain, and they soon turned upside down before turning to pentagrams and eventually to Slayer’s logo. Then the band just exploded onto the stage with a shredding performance of the title track to their latest album “Repentless.” It was a bittersweet moment, because as awesome as it was, everyone knew this may be the last time they will get to see the group, since they are out on their final world tour. However, the good thing was the fact that things were just beginning at that moment. After the band finished the track, they started ripping their way through classics such as “Blood Red,” “Disciple,” and “Mandatory Suicide.” Kerry King cranked out riffs like a machine, as Gary Holt (Exodus) complemented him with intense solos. That guitar work combined with Tom Araya’s banshee like screams and Paul Bostaph’s thunderous drum work created a solid unit that would be hard to outmatch. The stage production was incredible as well, especially all the fire. The band really wanted to put on a show and they definitely succeeded. It’s hard to choose a highlight, but watching them play the last three songs,”Raining Blood,” “Chemical Warfare,” and “Angel Of Death,” was so epic it’s hard to put into words. When all was said and done, Araya returned to the stage to thank everyone for the years of support, and with that it was time to say goodbye to the legendary band. Their final tour will extend throughout 2019, so if you have a chance to catch them, it will be worth your while.

Napalm Death Premiere “Standardization” Music Video

Napalm Death have premiered a new video for their song “Standardization.” This track is featured on the band’s rarities compilation “Coded Smears And More Uncommon Slurs.” Mark “Barney” Greenway commented:

“Videos I find one of the trickiest mediums to make vibrant and impactful. Costin [Chioreanu], the producer though, had a lot of stuff from our Roadburn Festival presentation which seemed to fit the music quite nicely and reflect the song’s subject matter about the utter despair of a colourless life and desire of a more conservative forces for a homogenous world according to gender, sexuality, human habits and, well, generally everything. No thanks!”
