Napalm Death - Time Waits For No Slave
The UK grind-institute called Napalm Death is back again with a new album! A new album of this band is always something to watch out for. The band has been around for over 25 years and always treated the public with some vile, fast fucking political death/grind. Napalm Death experienced just as many highlights as lows in their career. They started off as a groundbreaking, political grind band; to slowly turn into a death-metal band that lost itself in experiments. With the ultimate strange albums Diatribes and Inside The Torn Apart. Luckily after a tour with Nasum in 2001 and their album Enemy Of The Music Business, they re-found their grind roots.

I think after their turning-point around 2001, they really found their place back in extreme music. Where newer grind bands in the past couple of years claimed the grind-throne, Napalm Death slowly re-claimed their old throne back with some awesome albums. This album will continue to prove once again, that Napalm Death is the one and only true grind band that belongs on that throne.

The album kicks off with the fastest song on the album. From there on, the effort continues to progress in a very diverse and aggressive way. Overall the album is filled with fast, catchy typical Napalm Death songs, in the vein of the album The Code Is Red…Long Live The Code out of 2005. They don’t search for new musical grounds to explore; they basically do what they are best at! It sounds negative, but it’s not, because this is what Napalm Death does best.

There are a few songs that wander off the path, like the title song ‘Time Waits For No Slave’, with loads of effects on the vocals. Sounds strange! The highlight of the album is the song ‘Passive Tense’, which opens with a calm, atmospheric interlude to burst out into a song with some awesome Terrorizer-alike sounding riffs. The same goes for the song ‘Feeling Redundant’, with an effective heavy groove riff in it. With these kind of songs Napalm Death is just as lethal as a sledgehammer bashed against your skull!

Luckily the world is still a fucked up place and sometimes I’m happy with that, because otherwise Barney wouldn’t have so much inspiration for all the great political, social-critical lyrics he spits out with a lot of rage. On every record he screams, grunts his outspoken, idealistic lyrics with so much passion, which makes me want to stand beside him on the barricade to protest! Essential album for Napalm Death and grind lovers.
