Formed in 1982, NAPALM DEATH are the legitimate forefathers of grindcore and achieved legendary status during their early days with their viciously raw demos like Hatred Surge and the debut album Scum (1987), which started a truly violent revolution within the world of extreme music. For the first time in 11 years NAPALM DEATH will head over to Australia to support their latest blasterpiece Smear Campaign. With this new record NAPALM DEATH once again have concocted an explosive cocktail of the band’s classic trademarks, increasing variety and flow by adding an even more extreme contrast of sheer brutality teaming up with irresistible groovy mid-pace attacks. On tour with Australian grindcore legends Blood Duster, NAPALM DEATH will be here to melt your faces & tear your skin off with an extremely potent & explosive metal lesson.
Blah blah blah: most rock journalism is people who can’t write, interviewing people who can’t talk, for people who can’t read, and press releases ain’t much different. Here’s hoping the band do their version of ‘Nazi Punks Fuck Off’ for the benefit of all their racist fans eh? (And er, ‘You Suffer’ as their encore…)
Punk ain’t no religious cult
Punk means thinking for yourself
You ain’t hardcore ‘cos you spike your hair
When a jock still lives inside your head
Nazi punks — fuck off!
