UK Grindcore pioneers Napalm Death will be releasing their new studio album Throes of Joy in the Jaws of Defeatism on September 18th, 2020 via Century Media Records.
Napalm Death’s vocalist Mark ‘Barney’ Greenway comments about the song as follows:
This song in particular really spurred me on when I was writing lyrics for the album overall. It’s raucous and traditional, but also quirky and discordant and ultimately catchy-as-anything in the context of rampaging noise. Lyrically it was directed at the spiteful art of creating easy targets and fomenting paranoia and revulsion, which is something that I feel has become de rigueur in very recent times. I really let loose on the more sporadic vocals at the end of the song – it’s a real barkfest at that point. Lovely.
Throes of Joy in the Jaws of Defeatism is the highly anticipated follow-up to 2015’s acclaimed Apex Predator – Easy Meat album and the 16th studio album effort by Napalm Death. It was again recorded with longtime producer Russ Russell and features artwork by Frode Sylthe. The pre-order for the album in its various formats is starting today.
