Unquestionably the most influential band in extreme musics ferocious history. Albert Mudrian, the author of Choosing Death: The Improbable History Of Death Metal & Grindcore
Two decades after inventing grindcore, Napalm Death continue to demonstrate that their work is far from done. In the intervening years, there have been changes, but the mission has remained the same: to outlast every trend, never compromise, provide a political voice for the voiceless, and create the most brutal, challenging music on earth (Outburn). Smear Campaign, the bands sophomore Century Media studio album, exhibits every one of these traits. Passionately anti-war, pro-animal rights, and outspoken on social issues, the band never shy from standing up for their beliefs. Again produced by Russ Russel, who worked with the band on their last three albums, and returning to Wales Foel Studios (My Bloody Valentine, Porcupine Tree), where the band recorded 2005s The Code Is RedLong Live The Code they have once again concocted an explosive cocktail.
