If you really look at it, from 2000’s Enemy of the Music Business onward, Napalm Death has simply been lights-out. A fifteen-year, now-seven-album stretch like that from any band would command respect, but for one entering its 35th year of existence later this year? That’s special. Bands simply aren’t supposed to have that kind of run left in the tank after that much time in the game. And yet, there’s nothing about the band’s new album, Apex Predator – Easy Meat, to suggest they’ll be slowing down any time soon. On this, their 15th head-crushing venture into sheer brutality, the British grindcore legends sound as vital and aggressive as ever.
