The classic grincodre aficionados, Napalm Death, have announced that they are working on their 15th full length album. The band had the following to say:
First night done laying some more drum tracks down for the new ND Album..A different approach than the last record with different recording sessions,,some of the songs are worked out and some songs we are going for a more spontaneous approach to see where it takes us but so far we are getting some cool dynamics in drum tones and songs which will ultimately lead to a more diverse and crazy sounding album..it’s looking good so far !!

Not too long ago I told you about Evocation and their (soon to be released) new EP Excised And Anatomised which is a covers album. The album features fantastic renditions of tracks by the greats At The Gates, Napalm Death and more. The band has unleashed the first cover from the album and what is it you ask? Continue reading →
Swedish death metallers Evocation have released a new lyric video for their song “I’ll Be Your Suicide,” which appeared on the bands 2012 release Illusions of Grandeur. I never got around to this album, but listening to this track has given me to impression that it is pretty great. Aside from the lyric video, Evocation have also unveiled the details for their forthcoming covers EP titled Excised and Anatomised.
The video and track list for the EP can be viewed after the jump. Illusions Of Grandeur is available now via Century Media Records. Continue reading →
According to the reliable bros over at Metalsucks, former drummer of The Black Dahlia Murder, Shannon Lucas, is currently working on putting together a new grind project featuring Trevor Strnad (The Black Dahlia Murder) on vocals and Shane Embury (Napalm Death) on bass. Less notably the group features former Wartorn guitarist, Adam Faris. The group was originally conceived by Lucas prior to joining TBDM, but was put on the side line due to the groups busy schedule.
Apparently the guitar parts have been finished for quite some time and the band is just waiting for Embury to lay down some bass riffs before the ball really gets rolling. As of now, the group remains nameless but will be entering the studio in April to record vocals and drums for their first release. We will keep you updated as info is released.

Come fall and winter, hell will have officially enveloped the earth. The upcoming already tour-heavy quarters of fall and winter will now further welcome a North American split tour between crossover thrashers Municipal Waste and legendary grinders Napalm Death with direct support incoming from death metal heavyweights Exhumed. In addition, select dates will pull additional support from varied acts among the ranks of Vektor, Dayglo Abortions, Attitude Adjustment, Speedwolf, Repulsion, and Dwarves. In other news, it seems that I have just died and gone to hell. Check out the dates(via Metal Underground) for this absolute behemoth of a tour below. Continue reading →
Josh posted about the forthcoming, very, very jizz-worthy Converge/Napalm Death split album back in April. This very well might be the most anticipated split of the year. This is right up there with that rumored Pig Destroyer/Black Dahlia Murder split that we heard about a while back. This Converge Death split has had me in constant boner mode since I first heard about it and now we have a chance to preview this material. Yes! You get thirty second samples from both bands performing their first tracks on the split. Check it out below and, after you clean up your computer screen, leave a comment expressing your excitement. Enjoy.
I love Napalm Death, but no matter how awesome everyone said their new album was, I wasn’t really into it. Time Waits For No Slave was amazing, but Utilitarian was kinda meh in my eyes. Not really sure why, there was just a lot of stuff happening on that album that rubbed me the wrong way. Kinda like the clean vocals on the song “The Wolf I Feed.” That whole track is just kinda…. Yeah. Anyway, Napalm Death have released a new music video for that track. The video doesn’t really do it for me, but yeah. Check it out below.
As any of you out there should know, especially if you’re grindfreaks, that the Guinness World Records for shortest song and music video are held by Napalm Death and Brutal Truth respectively. The two grindcore bands have held these records for a long time and now it appears that Guinness will no longer be listing said “shortest” World Records. They stated the following:
“The nature of competing to make something the ‘shortest’ by its very nature trivialises the activity being carried out, and Guinness World Records has been forced to reject many claims of this kind. As such, we have been forced to cease listing records for the shortest song, shortest poem and indeed the shortest concert.”
The above statement was actually not made towards the current Record-holders, it was actually in response to Earache Records latest facemelter, Earache: Worlds Shortest Album which consists of 13 tracks in less than 1:30. Yes, that’s right. Thirteen power-packed grinding punches. Featuring track by grind heavyweights Napalm Death, Brutal Truth, Wormrot and Anal Cunt but also tracks by bands like Morbid Angel and Lawnmower Deth, this release is pretty killer and it’s only $4.99 on iTunes. So yeah. Guinness are douchebags and Earache are spiffy. Check out this compilation and enjoy the classic Napalm Death‘s “You Suffer” below and see the full track list for The Worlds Shortest Album.

I love Summer. Summer is usually a slow time for us metal bloggers because all of the major bands are out on tour or doing festivals. There isn’t a lot happening unless their is some major inter-band drama. When this time of year rolls around however, there is something pretty gnarly to get excited about: Summer Samplers from record labels!
So far there have been three killer Summer samplers released by three pretty stellar labels, A389 Recordings, Century Media Records and Deathwish, Inc. I love bands on all of these labels, so I am definitely going to grab these up. You can read a little about each sampler after the jump, as well as get the download links. [Continue...]
Commence pants shitting my dear readers because DeathwishInc. has just announced that motherfucking Converge and motherfucking Napalm Death are preparing to release a split 7″ / digital EP! As of now, there is no release date for the split yet, however I can tell you that it will consist of two songs by each band.
The Napalm Death side will feature a traditional grind assault titled “Will By Mouth” as well as a slower, more doomier track titled “No Impediment To Triumph (Bhopal)” which is about the Union carbide gas plant explosion in India (if you don’t know about this, read up, shit is fucked). The Converge side will feature one of the new songs that the band has been playing live, “No Light Escapes”, and a collaborative cover of the Entombed (LULZ as if Deathwish hasn’t paid enough homage to Entombed lately) classic “Wolverine Blues”.

What is up with music videos lately being hit or miss? I mean, every band that puts out a video either does something great or they flop 100%. Unfortunately the new video by the great Napalm Death into the latter category. I mean, it’s just so… Meh. It doesn’t really hold my attention and the effects are super cheesy and it’s just not a great video. I expected a lot, but sadly I got nothing in return. Other than the fact that this song is killer. So great track, bummer video. Oh well. No point in bitchin’, eh? Check out the video for “Analysis Paralysis” below. This track comes off of Napalm Death‘s recently released Utilitarian, which is out now via Century Media.
Not much to really say about this that I haven’t said in my two previous posts (see here and here), so you can pretty much just watch the video below. Utilitarian will be released on February 28th via Century Media Records.
