NAPALM DEATHs enduring impact on the world of sonic savagery began in earnest in the late 80s, when the bands first two albums 1987s Scum and its 1988 follow-up From Enslavement To Obliteration refined and redefined the notion of brutalityand velocity in the worlds of punk, hardcore and metal. Endorsed by legendary and much-missed DJ John Peel, the Brummie grindcore pioneers were such an exhilarating and yet alien dose of jolting adrenaline that even the mainstream media wereforced to prick up their ears and take note. Throw in the fact that NAPALM DEATH were and still are driven by a ferocious intelligence and a genuine desire to make the world a better place through the promotion of rational thought and respect for all fellow humans, they stood apart from the often nihilistic and intellectually bankrupt underground metal scene and have remained unique and unerring ever since. While grind purists may point to those earliest records as evidence of the bands signifi-cance, it is the tireless and terrorising exploits of the now classic line-up of vocalist Mark Barney Greenway, bassist Shane Embury, guitarist Mitch Harris and drummer Danny Herrera that have cemented NAPALM DEATHs status as extreme music leg-ends. Over the last 20 years, the band have released a relentless slew of groundbreaking and fearless albums and other releases that have consistently punched holes in the heavy music worlds perimeter fence, espousing an indestructible credo of creativity and lyrical fire along the way.
