Napalm Death to release ‘mini-album’ on Feb. 11

Pioneering U.K. grindcore band Napalm Death will release a “mini-album” titled “Resentment Is Always Seismic – A Final Throw of Throes” on Feb. 11, 2022, via Century Media Records. It is a partner recording to the band’s 2020 album, “Throes of Joy in the Jaws of Defeatism.”

“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,” frontman Mark “Barney” Greenway said. “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.”

“’Narcissus’” just seemed to fit the bill as one of those rampaging tracks that we always seem to gravitate towards as an album opener,” Greenway said. “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.”

The eight-track mini-album has a total playing time of 29 minutes and will be available as Ltd. CD Digipak, vinyl, as well as in a digital album format, with the following track-listing:

1. Narcissus
2. Resentment Always Simmers
3. By Proxy
4. People Pie (Slab! cover version)
5. Man Bites Dogged
6. Slaver Through a Repeat Performance
7. Don’t Need It (Bad Brains cover version)
8. Resentment is Always Seismic (Dark Sky Burial Dirge)
