Get up and join the colony, bitches!

Nothing to get the day started like a new Napalm Death song, right? Make some coffee, crank up the volume, and make plans for tonight.

My plans are awesome, they consist of choosing one of several websites “girls” that will keep me company for tonight, if you catch my drift.


Napalm Death frontman interviewed

Napalm Death frontman, Barney, has perhaps one of the most un-metal names around. Then again, his real first name is Mark, which is also my name, so he must be pretty awesome. Plus, we’ve interviewed him too before, so that makes him very awesome.

Anyways, Barney has been interviewed for the latest episode of ‘The Governor’s Ball’ and you can listen to the audio clips over at Blabbermouth.


And now for some metal…

Enjoy Napalm Death‘s ‘Scum’, just ’cause.


Kerrang count down heaviest albums ever. Metalheads laugh.

In the news this week (well, not really news, but certainly lulz worthy), the UK’s Kerrang magazine has counted down what they consider to be the 50 heaviest albums of all time. Now, I haven’t read the full list, but looking at the top 10, the list is pretty damn shit. To be honest though, I’m just surprised My Chemical Romance, Paramore and Green Day (and yes, I didn’t bold those names for a reason) didn’t make the cut (and thank God).

The Guardian (a British broadsheet for those that don’t know) have posted an article in regards to the top 10, and that’s where I have got my information from.

10. Machine Head – Burn My Eyes
9. The Beatles – The White album
8. Sleep – Jerusalem/Dopesmoker
7. Electric Wizard – Dopethrone
6. Discharge – Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing
5. Napalm Death – Scum
4. Mastodon – Leviathan
3. Slipknot – Iowa
2. Converge – Jane Doe
1. Slayer – Reign in Blood

So onto my thoughts…

Well, firstly, The Beatles is an obvious WHAT THE FUCK? You’re trying to be ‘abstract’ and ‘quirky’ with your definition of “heavy”, I get it, I really do. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think ‘heaviness’ is necessarily defined by who can play the fastest and loudest to the point of it being simply noise (a top 10 filled with underground Death Metal bands that play to 60 people a night would be boring), but this is just wrong.

Next… No Metallica? Actually, good.

No Black Sabbath? List has failed completely now. I need not say any more… But I will, because I like the sound of my own voice (or words… only words don’t make a sound).

But, kudos for the inclusion of Napalm Death‘s Scum.

Iowa? That was the heaviest album I had ever heard when it came out. However, I was only 14 then. I assume (nay, hope) that the editors of Kerrang are not 14.

Slayer number one with Reign in Blood? I don’t know if I’d put it at number one, but I guess I’d defend its position in the top 10.

Everything else: Erm no, not really. Perhaps DoM should post its own Top 10 heaviest albums of all time (not me though, I listen to Spice Girls in my spare time).


Napalm Death have some news

Napalm Death

The sweetest news of them all — the new album is done! Well, at least according to Shane Embury, and the recent interview he did with Decibel Magazine. And he should know. Read the whole thing for details, but here are the most important ones:

  • Everything’s done, including Barney’s vocals
  • 19 songs have been recorded, a few will probably be cut from the regular release
  • Song titles like Quarantine, The Wolf I Feed, Collision Course, Fall on Their Swords…
  • Album title hasn’t been decided on yet
  • They’re aiming for an October/November release date, though it might be pushed to next year

All I can say is — November can’t come quicker. Unless they really push it back to 2012. Then November is going to fucking suck.
