U.K. grindcore pioneers NAPALM DEATH have just released their new mini-album, “Resentment Is Always Seismic – A Final Throw Of Throes”, via Century Media Records.
A visualizer video created by Chariot Of Black Moth for the record’s experimental final track, “Resentment is Always Seismic (Dark Sky Burial Dirge)”, can be seen below.
“Resentment Is Always Seismic – A Final Throw Of Throes” is a partner recording to NAPALM DEATH’s latest album, 2020’s “Throes Of Joy In The Jaws Of Defeatism”, concluding matters through vital, tumultuous grindcore and shockwave ambience.
NAPALM DEATH frontman Mark “Barney” Greenway says: “You can certainly consider ‘Resentment Is Always…’ as an extension of — or partner recording to — the ‘Throes…’ album. We had long since wanted to put a mini-album out — in the spirit of the old days — and found we had enough quality tracks even after all the ‘Throes…’ bonus tracks to do that. Hopefully, this mini holds some nice twists in its own right for people, and certainly covering ‘People Pie’ by SLAB! made us really stretch ourselves, which feels great artistically. In the end, resentment is certainly seismic — it can trigger the complete erosion of humanity in many situations. That was the point that I really wanted to hammer home overall.”
The eight-song “Resentment Is Always Seismic – A Final Throw Of Throes” comes with a total playing time of 29 minutes and is available as a limited CD digipak, vinyl as well as in the digital album format with the following track listing:
02. Resentment Always Simmers
03. By Proxy
04. People Pie (SLAB! cover)
05. Man Bites Dogged
06. Slaver Through A Repeat Performance
07. Don’t Need It (BAD BRAINS cover)
08. Resentment Is Always Seismic (Dark Sky Burial Dirge)
NAPALM DEATH will return to the U.S. this spring to embark on “The North American Siege 2022” tour with ARCH ENEMY and BEHEMOTH.
