NAPALM DEATH, MELT-BANANA, RSD BF 2016 - Like Piss To A Sting (7in)
Notify me when back in stock
The fathers of grindcore, Napalm Death pushed the envelope of metal to new extremes
of ear-splitting intensity, rejecting all notions of melody, subtlety, and good taste to forge
a brand of sonic assault almost frightening in its merciless brutality. Formed in Ipswich,
England in 1982, they trafficked in the usual heavy metal fare for the first few years of their
existence, but by the middle of the decade they began to expand their horizons by
incorporating elements of hardcore and thrash into the mix; ultimately, Napalm Death's
sonic experiments evolved into a blistering mutation of metal that they dubbed grindcore,
a kind of extremist noise attack characterized by incredibly brief song lengths, demonic
vocals, and eye-opening sociopolitical lyrical commentary.
Japanese noise rock band Melt-Banana found success in the U.S. and the U.K., gaining
a small but dedicated fan base among American and European punk rock fans. Although
their music sounds noticeably different from any sort of traditional punk, it contains some
punk elements: shrieking vocals, overdriven guitars, and one-and-a-half-minute songs.
Melt-Banana's unique style, however, comes as a result of the distinctly piercing vocals of
lead singer Yasuko 0., as well as the frenzied, effect-charged playing of guitarist Agata.
Searing, intense, and mind-blowingly fast are perhaps the first adjectives that come to mind
when listening to Melt-Banana's music.
Try to imagine an even more energetic incarnation of the Boredoms.
These two hardcore and punk icons have teamed up to release a split 7' as a Record
Store Day Exclusive for Black Friday.
