UK Grindcore pioneers NAPALM DEATH will be releasing their new studio album “Throes of Joy in the Jaws of Defeatism” on September 18th, 2020 via Century Media Records. In advance of the album’s release, a new single is being launched today. Check out the song “Amoral” in a video clip created by Michael Panduro above.
NAPALM DEATH’s vocalist Mark ‘Barney’ Greenway checked in with the following comment about the song and its video: “A good shout to work once again with Michael Panduro, as he really adapts his style video to video rather than just using a singular approach. We delight in a generous helping of the absurd, so for one thing, the footage of children seemingly at play but displaying signs of systemic obedience really propels Shane’s lyrical thrust of our default powerlessness within the pecking order. As sonics go, I think it’s post-punk as fuck and grooves massively and accordingly.”

“Throes of Joy in the Jaws of Defeatism” is the highly anticipated follow-up to 2015’s acclaimed “Apex Predator – Easy Meat” album and the 16th (!) studio album effort by NAPALM DEATH. It was again recorded with longtime producer Russ Russell and features artwork by Frode Sylthe.
From the pinnacle of confrontational instrumental extremity and steadfast lyrical humanity, NAPALM DEATH’s new album warps musical landscapes all over again. “Throes of Joy in the Jaws of Defeatism” includes 12 songs seething with caustic evolution and unrelenting scope. Here is the track-listing for the standard edition of the album.
