3.0 out of 5 stars One for the death metal fans, 7 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Harmony Corruption (Audio CD)
For me, there are three Napalm Death eras - the punk gring of Scum and FETO, the death metal period and then the return to fast grind on Enemy Of The Music Business.
The middle one is my least favourite. Hence, until receiving this recently, I didn't own any of the CDs from this period.
But I was curious as to how this album would sound. And, to be honest, it is a pure death metal album.
The first Napalm album to feature Barney on vocals, the lyrics are as strong as ever, and Mitch Harris excels on his last recording with the band, but I miss the grind.
The vocals, the guitar sound, even the band photo all point to death metal -and, to be fair, it is a great death metal album - but I prefer the speed (which only comes from the drums here) of Enemy and FETO.
It does feature Suffer The children - still part of the band's live set today and Deicide and Obituary's vocalist both guest on here - and, I have to say, the sound is very Obituary in general really.
Napalm have always attracted a wide range of fans - punks, metallers and indie kids - this one is definately for the metallers.
