Napalm Death announce mini-album ‘Resentment is Always Seismic’

Posted by on December 10, 2021


UK grindcore masters Napalm Death have announced their brand new mini-album, Resentment is Always Seismic – a final throw of Throes, out February 11th via Century Media. The mini-record is a continuation from their latest full-length effort, 202’s Throes Of Joy In The Jaws Of Defeatism. To celebrate the announcement, the group has unveiled the new song “Narcissus.” 


Frontman Mark “Barney” Greenway comments: 

“You can certainly consider “Resentment Is Always…” as an extension of – or partner recording to – the “Throes…” album. We had long since wanted to put a mini-album out – in the spirit of the old days – and found we had enough quality tracks even after all the “Throes…” bonus tracks to do that. Hopefully this mini holds some nice twists in its own right for people, and certainly covering “People Pie” by Slab! made us really stretch ourselves, which feels great artistically. In the end, resentment is certainly seismic – it can trigger the complete erosion of humanity in many situations. That was the point that I really wanted to hammer home overall.”


Greenway adds: 

““Narcissus” just seemed to fit the bill as one of those rampaging tracks that we always seem to gravitate towards as an album opener. The low-slung concrete mixer bassline at the start really ushers it in nicely. It was written at a time when the ‘alt-right’ was parading itself around, so lyrically I like to think it exposes the vanity and personality cult of that whole thing.”
