Napalm Death - Throes Of Joy In The Jaws Of Defeatism
back with their 16th studio LP ! After more than 30 years and numerous line-up changes, Birmingham grind pioneers Napalm Death still sound like the musical equivalent of electro-convulsive therapy. Their sound is a bracing jolt to the system that – for all its apparent barbarism – is intended to bring about positive transformation. This therapeutic aspect is reflected in the title of their 16th studio album. Not for them the icy nihilism of black metal, the Lovecraftian vistas of death metal, nor the dismal solipsism of doom; over the years the band have remained true to the humanist principles that charged 1987’s Scum and 1988’s From Enslavement To Obliteration, and with Throes Of Joy In The Jaws Of Defeatism they reassert themselves as a force for life.
