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.The group is launching a first single from the upcoming album today. Check out ‘Backlash Just Because’ in a lyric video by Cloud Music Typography

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.”

With bass powerful enough to start a dead planet, ‘Backlash Just Because’ is heavy and chaotic in all the best ways. Greenway’s growling is evil in its baritone shrieking and the band sound tight and bigger than what a trio should do, making more noise than a medium size war.
