UK grindcore pioneers Napalm Death have recently announced a new mini album ‘Resentment is Always Seismic – a final throw of Throes’, out February 11th, 2022 via Century Media Records. This is an extension of their previous release ‘Throes of Joy in the Jaws of Defeatism’, and contains bonus tracks, together with a cover of “People Pie” by Slab!. The band have already released the first track, ‘Narcissus‘, which you can check out on the video link above.
“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,” states frontman Mark “Barney” Greenway.
