Emma Barnett of Total Rock radio conducted an interview with vocalist Mark “Barney” Greenway of British grindcore pioneers NAPALM DEATH at this year’s edition of the Bloodstock Open Airfestival, which was held August 12-14, 2011 at Catton Hall in Derbyshire, United Kingdom. You can now watch the chat below.
NAPALM DEATH recently re-signed with Century Media Records. The band’s as-yet-untitled 14th studio album was recorded earlier this year at Parlour Studio in Kettering, U.K. with longtime producer Russ Russell and is scheduled for release in early 2012.
Renowned as one of the most reliable and hardest-working bands in extreme music, NAPALM DEATH is currently on the road all across Russia, will head over to Canada in October and has already confirmed appearances at the 2012 editions of the Wacken Open Air (Germany), Neurotic Deathfest (Netherlands) and Maryland Deathfest (USA) festivals.
NAPALM DEATH earlier in the year contributed a brand new track called “Legacy Was Yesterday” to Decibel magazine’s monthly flexi disc series. The song — the band’s first new material since 2009’s “Time Waits for No Slave” LP — was recorded at Rapture Audio with James Walford and mastered by Russ Russell.
“Time Waits For No Slave” entered the German Media Control chart at position No. 95. The CD, which was released in the U.S. in February 2009 via Century Media Records, was recorded with producer Russ Russell. Drums were tracked at Parlour Studios in Kettering and guitars, bass and vocals were done at Foel Studios in Wales. The band then returned to Parlour for the mixing sessions.
