Since the departure of guitarist Mitch Harris, Napalm Death has been entirely dependent—in terms of writing, that is—on Shane Embury (bass), who has now become the band’s chief songwriter. You can still hear grindcore running through the English band’s music (if only through Barney Greenway’s instantly recognisable vocals), but industrial sounds are increasingly invading their sound. Birmingham has never left such a mark on one of its own resident bands.

Is that a bad thing? Definitely not. It’s obvious that the band didn’t put the pedal to the metal in a desperate attempt to adopt new sounds. On the contrary, they’ve considerably enriched their music with these external influences (a bit like Swans, actually). Though, of course, there’s the risk that fans who’ve been supporting them from the very beginning no longer recognise their favourite band. Napalm Death even go as far as to boldly cover People Pie on this EP, an obscure song by SLAB! from the 80s. Their rendition includes slap bass, something unheard of within this genre, and (even more unusually) sampled female soul choirs! Once recovered from the initial shock, there’s no doubt that this cover is the best track on this hybrid beast that Napalm Death has gifted us. Their cover of “Don’t Need It” by Bad Brains is far more anecdotal and ubiquitous. Narcissus, By Proxy and Man Bites Dogged, on the other hand, are everything you’d expect from Napalm Death.

Like any self-respecting EP, Resentment (…) is somewhat set apart from the rest of the album. However, it still highlights the changes that have been taking place within the band across their last few albums. Napalm Death has always worked in phases. The music they’re producing is still top-notch, and everyone is bound to get on-board with their new, emerging sound. The band’s survival obviously demands evolution, and it would be foolish to resist it. © Charlélie Arnaud/Qobuz

The Origins of Swedish Death Metal

As the birthplace of an ever-increasing number of metal groups, Sweden proved their worth internationally in the early 90s when a dynamic crowd of metalheads burst onto the scene. We look back in time to understand how Swedish death metal developed and what made it so original.

Know Your Lemmy

Lemmy Kilmister passed away on the 28th of December 2015, after 40 years fronting Motörhead, the loudest rock’n’roll band in history. The icon, who was deemed to be immortal, died of cancer at the age of 70, inevitably taking Motörhead to the grave with him. The English rock band went through two decades of ups, downs, and misunderstandings—not that this ever transferred into the powerful sound they let loose on stage...

The Golden Age of American Death Metal

An often rejected, parodied and misinterpreted sub-genre of metal, the fierce death metal has nevertheless succeeded in garnering a significant following over the decades. Arriving in the 80s, the genre continues to evolve; from its early pursuit of the ultra-violent to its more recent incorporation of aspects from more mainstream genres. Let us look back at the origins of death metal.
