Napalm Death have announced a February 11th release date for their new mini-album of sorts, “Resentment Is Always Seismic – A Final Throw Of Throes“. Intended as a ‘partner’ to their 2020 album “Throes Of Joy In The Jaws Of Defeatism“, this new abbreviated effort from the pioneering grindcore outfit sports previously unreleased material and covers. Here’s how the 29-minute effort shapes up:

01 – “Narcissus
02 – “Resentment Always Simmers
03 – “By Proxy
04 – “People Pie” (Slab! cover)
05 – “Man Bites Dogged
06 – “Slaver Through A Repeat Performance
07 – “Don’t Need It” (Bad Brains cover)
08 – “Resentment Is Always Seismic” (Dark Sky Burial dirge)

Vocalist Mark “Barney” Greenway commented of this release:

“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.”

A stream of the opening track has newly made its way online and is available below. Greenway said of it:

“‘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.”
