Apex Predator: Easy Meat

Three decades in, British grindcore pioneers are as hungry as ever

Napalm Death

Kevin Estrada

Napalm Death couldn’t have hit upon a more fitting title for their 15th album: A good 30-odd years after their formation in coal-dusted Birmingham, England, the grindcore godfathers are now at the apex of their career. Their secret? They’ve never stopped. That’s why the riffs are still sharp, the grooves are still bottomless, and Barney Greenway’s voice still drips vitriol over lyrics that cut to the quick of modern society’s ills. Apex Predator: Easy Meat is a pummeling listen that doesn’t get old. Napalm Death may have adopted “Nazi punks, fuck off!” as their battle cry many years ago, but as it turns out, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” works just as well.
