Napalm Death announce new album title, release date, and cover artwork

Posted by jrod1209 on Friday, November 4, 2011 at 3:07 PM (PST)

U.K. grindcore act Napalm Death is currently putting the final touches on their 14th studio album. This new album is entitled “Utilitarian,” and it will hit stores on February 27th in Europe and February 28th in North America via Century Media Records. The cover artwork was created by the Danish artist Frode Sylthe.

Singer Mark “Barney” Greenway explains the album title and concept:

“After some deliberation, we have decided on Utilitarian as the album title. We generally try to avoid generic titles, and this seemed to have a lot of scope to it. I won’t explain the full meaning of Utilitarianism here because it’s an ethical theory, and as ethical theories go, the depth and debate around it is quite heavy at times. It has a certain ‘morality’ aspect to it and that isn’t something that drives me, so I also certainly have issues with it.”

“So, rather than just nail that straight to the mast, of course we wanted to put our own spin on it by suggesting that those (i.e. the utilitarian in us, perhaps) who try to challenge everything, or fight against conventions, well, we go through periods of real self-doubt where we wonder if we’re really making a difference. I suppose the conclusion is that, for the sake of all our freedoms, you should never stop, as even the feeling of resistance is at least a signal to those who would like to entirely control and dominate us – meaning everything from our instinctive behavior to our human entitlement to walk the earth unprovoked.”

“Regarding the album overall, the final creases should be ironed out fairly soon, and immediately after that, we thought it would be good to top it off with a few UK dates. We’ve been playing one new song (“Quarantined”) out on a tour of Canada and it’s been well received, so we hope to perhaps throw in another one for now. Either way, we’ll be bouncing off the walls again near you very soon. Cheers all.”

Napalm Death Frontman Performs Guest Vocals on New SSS Album

Posted by JDKleinhans on Monday, May 23, 2011 at 5:33 PM (PST)

British crossover thrashers SSS have revealed that Napalm Death frontman Barney Greenway will appear as a guest vocalist on the band’s forthcoming new album, titled “Problems to the Answer”.

Greenway performs guest vocals on the tracks “The Kill Floor”, “Here Comes The Neighbourhood” and “Roar”.  “Problems to the Answer” is due to be released in Europe on June 6th and in North America on July 12th.

Greenway comments on his guest appearance: “Foxy really knows his musical onions and when he had some parts for me to do, I knew it was going to be a gas.  The main part had a Discharge-y feel to it, so I was sold on that instantly.  Went in, shouted, went home.  No fucking about.  Good stuff.”

SSS frontman Foxy comments: “Barney was on a shortlist of one – it was him or no one.  Knew he’d be into the direction of our latest musical outing and the stance the songs take were right up his street.  Some serious barking was required and his dulcet tones didn’t disappoint.”
