One of the elite grindcore metal bands, Napalm Death recently released their new studio album "Throes Of Joy In The Jaws Of Defeatism." The dozen tracks that make up the new album are nothing short of mind-numbing chaos that will have you screaming for more once its done. One thing that the band has learned over the course of four decades is to not soften the edges of their sound, as displayed in the aggressive clash of "The Curse Of Being In Thrall" and "Zero Gravitas Chamber." Napalm Death blast through the classic thrash metal sound of "Contagion," while "Invigorating Clutch" grinds down their sound with a solid guitar buzz. The band's energy is undeniable in the adrenaline blast of "Fluxing The Muscle," before delivering the most mainstream track on the album, the nostalgic heavy metal romp of "Amoral." Napalm Death wrap up their new album with the three-minute, head-bashing attack of the title song "Throes Of Joy In The Jaws Of Defeatism," along with the experimental, industrial metal appeal of "A Belly Of Salt And Spleen."
