NAPALM DEATH have announced a new mini-album!
Titled Resentment Is Always Seismic – A Final Throw Of Throes, the upcoming mini-album from the grindcore veterans is scheduled to be released in February next year, via Century Media Records.
The upcoming mini-album is a partner recording to the band’s latest, much acclaimed Throes Of Joy In The Jaws Of Defeatism which was released in September last year. Speaking about the upcoming mini-album, 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.”
Speaking about the new song, Greenway adds, “Narcissus just seemed to fit the bill as one of those rampaging tracks that we always seem to gravitate towards as an album opener. The low-slung concrete mixer bassline at the start really ushers it in nicely. It was written at a time when the ‘alt-right’ was parading itself around, so lyrically I like to think it exposes the vanity and personality cult of that whole thing.”
