NAPALM DEATH Release Single "Backlash Just Because"
Friday, July 31, 2020 @ 6:16 AM
New Album THROES OF JOY IN THE JAWS OF DEFEATISM Out September 18th
U.K. grindcore pioneers
NAPALM DEATH, who recently announced the release of their first album in five years, (Sept. 18, Century Media Records), have released the first single and lyric video from the album: Throes of Joy in the Jaws of Defeatism , which you can check out BELOW. “Backlash Just Because”
NAPALM DEATH vocalist Mark “Barney” Greenway said of the track, which debuted on Sirius XM’s Liquid Metal with Jose Mangin: “This song in particular really spurred me on when I was writing lyrics for the album overall. It’s raucous and traditional, but also quirky and discordant and ultimately catchy-as-anything in the context of rampaging noise. Lyrically it was directed at the spiteful art of creating easy targets and fomenting paranoia and revulsion, which is something that I feel has become de rigueur in very recent times. I really let loose on the more sporadic vocals at the end of the song – it’s a real barkfest at that point. Lovely.”
is the follow-up to the band’s critically-acclaimed 2015 album, Throes of Joy in the Jaws of Defeatism , and is the sixteenth studio album effort by Apex Predator – Easy Meat NAPALM DEATH. It was again recorded with longtime producer Russ Russell and features artwork by Frode Sylthe.
From the pinnacle of confrontational instrumental extremity and steadfast lyrical humanity,
warps musical landscapes all over again. The 12-song release is seething with caustic evolution and unrelenting scope. Throes of Joy in the Jaws of Defeatism
