In addition to the change in line-up that, with the exception of drummer Mick Harris leaving (and Jesse Pintado tragically dying) remained constant on every Napalm Death album ever since, the band also saw a significant shift in musical direction, allowing more slow tempo grooves into the mix and relying less constantly on Blast Beats.
When compared to the band's first two albums, the lyrics are a lot more developed and intelligent, the song lengths are markedly longer and the music within had taken on a large influence from the Death Metal scene at the time. The production is also a lot better as Napalm Death recorded the album in Florida at Morrisound Studios with Scott Burns, who as many listeners will know is associated with many important and genre defining records all with a connected production style.
If anyone was still in doubt of the band's Death Metal leanings, John Tardy of Obituary and Glen Benton of Deicide even provide guest vocals on the record, further associating Harmony Corruption with the American Death Metal scene of the era.Read more ›
While the first huge line-up change in Napalm Death ranks saw the band continuing on the same grindcore path for 2nd album From Enslavement To Obliteration, here the group change in musical direction from grindcore to death metal, at times sounding like a completely different band. Where previous Napalm Death songs were dominated by Mick Harris blastbeats, here they make room for metallic riffs and slower groove sections, and where once Napalm's songs tended to last for barely one minute, now they tend to last for five. This was of course just a natural progression for the band, with more complex and intricate musical ideas starting to take the place of their early primitive grindcore sound, but coupled with the Scott Burns production at the death metal Mecca of Morrisound, the band were accused of selling out and jumping on the then highly trendy death metal bandwagon.
All such arguments about bandwagon-jumping are irrelevant however, when compared to the sheer quality of Harmony Corruption, which must rank as one of the best death metal albums ever recorded.Read more ›
My favourite songs are Unfit Earth, Circle of Hypocrisy, Suffer the Children and If the Truth be Known. These songs I feel really stand out.
The only thing I wished was better about the CD is the quality. Although the sound quality kind of adds to the rough feel it could have done with a re-master and its volume louder but combating that it gives it that gruff edge that older grindcore is all about. Their lyrics are political and dealing with the system and problems of the world, an always meaningful theme from the band.
This album is a staple in grindcore and the extremely heavy riffs and vocals will make fans of the awful pop music of today crumble in dismay and terror. Napalm Death are one of the best metal bands in history and this album is a must have. Raw and brutal and a fist to the problems the earth faces. Just the music we need in today's world.
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.
