MUSIC NEWS: NAPALM DEATH Announce Mini-Album & Release New Track ‘Narcissus’
NAPALM DEATH have announced their new mini-album titled Resentment is Always Seismic – a final throw of Throes is set for release on 11th February 2022.
“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.,” explains frontman Mark ‘Barney’ Greenway.
The first taste of their new mini-album has come with Narcissus, as Greenway comments: “’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”.
Resentment is Always Seismic – a final throw of Throes is available to pre-order now from HERE ahead of its release on 11th February 2022 via Century Media Records.
