A British band who, in the 80s and then the 90s, helped to start and then define grindcore music. They are still generally regarded as the genres primogenitors. Grind is basically short and fast, with very sludgy guitars and bass and shouty/growly vocals. Short in the extreme sense - Napalm Death's best known record, 1987's Scum, contained 28 tracks in 33 minutes, the longest being just over 2 minutes, and the shortest being 4 seconds. Because of these aspects, grind has obviously never really gotten through to the mainstream. Napalm Death are still going today (Feb 2004).
Napalm Death? Yeah, I've heard them...they're fucking strange. Bloody heavy though!
Are the BEAST!!! they can smack the living shit outta pussy rock groups such as Creed, Korn and Pimp Shitzkitt.
Breed to Breathe.........
The best, most awesome band on the face of the earth.
Napalm Death Rules!
Amazing grindcore band. One of the first of the kind. Have influenced many other bands.
death metal has brutal/sick lyrics. napalm death might not have brutal lyrics, but, like my friend says... Listening to them is like getting smashed in the face with a sledgehammer!
amazing grindcore band, they are the actual invetors of grincore since the drummer on both sides of the scum album was the first to use the word.
they don't have really brutal lyrics but the sound they create is brutal.
i was listening to napalm death and thought i was being hit with a hammer!
You could've chosen better words than "awesome". It makes you sound like a pansy.
Napalm Death could kick your ass.
