Staff review by
Classic Monster of Earache Records, Highly Recommended

1987 was the year of Grindcore according to some experts; bands like Agathocles, Extreme Noise Terror and Carcass were haunting the scene with some Demos and EP's by then; but there was a band that was already smothering some ears with a Full Length CD called simply "Scum", a band so tense and so ahead of its time that scared the living *Bleep Noise* out of your parents, and even the people that called themselves "Extreme" in those days had to breathe for a second and say "What the Hell was that?". The name ladies and gentleman, is Napalm Death .

Is there some band that i can better start with?

Not sure if you want grindcore suggestions or deathcore suggestions. :s


Brutal Truth- Extreme Conditions Demand Extreme Responses is a very great grind core album to start with. It's their classic debut, and it mixes pure grind with a bit of slower death paced stuff, the song writing is also catchy and their vocalist is wayyy better than what you hear on Scum.

Nasum had some good stuff as did Pig Destroyer.

Napalm Death is actually best tackled from their later discography. Their early stuff certainly isn't up to my tastes (hence I sold it all for $3 a CD).

I actually like the first 2, because the goal was to obliterate everything in it's path and they succeed, and with repeated listens the giant thick riffs really start to stand out..however, they did get very interesting again with the newer releases--particularly The Code is Red and after... I can't really stomach any of the mid career experimental period.

This. Their early stuff (grind or death) is just dull, and You Suffer is the only memorable song on here.

Stuff like The Code Is Red, Smear Campaign and Utilitarian... now that is good ND.
