NAPALM DEATH recently took part in Decibel magazine’s second annual national tour alongside the preeminent gore institution CANNIBAL CORPSE and New York death metal stalwarts IMMOLATION.
NAPALM DEATH‘s latest album, “Utilitarian”, sold around 2,200 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The CD debuted at No. 14 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
NAPALM DEATH‘s previous album, 2009’s “Time Waits For No Slave”, opened with around 1,800 units to land at No. 19 on the Heatseekers chart.
“Utilitarian” was released on February 27, 2012 in Europe and February 28, 2012 in North America via the band’s longtime partner, Century Media Records. The cover artwork perfectly fits the album’s theme and was created by the Danish artist Frode Sylthe, who is also responsible for THE HAUNTED‘s “rEVOLVEr” artwork.
Bustleholme — a live collaboration between NAPALM DEATH and ceramic artist Keith Harrison — has been rescheduled for Friday, November 29 in the Modernist setting of the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill on Sea, East Sussex, United Kingdom.
Initially created for the VA in London (where it was supposed to take place this past March), this groundbreaking project will see the band come together with Harrison to depict and destroy a custom-built installation during a one-off live performance. Expect no limitations imposed upon what will no doubt be one of the most important events of the cultural calendar.
