Napalm Death Announces Resentment is Always Seismic – a final throw of Throes Mini-Album

Resentment is Always Seismic – a final throw of Throes is a companion piece to Napalm Death’s latest, Decibel Magazine's 2020 album of the year, Throes Of Joy In The Jaws Of Defeatism, "concluding matters through vital, tumultuous grindcore and shockwave ambience." "Narcissus" is the opening track off the mini-album and available for your consumption right now!

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,” says vocalist Mark “Barney” Greenway.

““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.”, added Greenway.
