Listen to the new Napalm Death track - "Leper Colony"

A little more than a month from now, and a new Napalm Death album (their 14th!!) will be unleashed upon the world. I know we're all very excited to hear the full thing, but for now this newly released track called "Leper Colony" will have to do until February. It's a pretty kick ass song, an obvious continuation from their last full length "Time Waits For No Slave"; occasional weird chords, tight musicianship, and Barneys rabid dog roar is still as fierce as ever. The choruses however whip out some layered, droning, clean vocals reminiscent of the title track of their last album. Admittedly, I wasn't a fan of it then and I'm not a fan of it now, it's a pretty weak chorus. From what I've heard there's supposed to be even more weirdness on this album including a saxophone bit, which I am quite interested in hearing. You can stream the new track over at Brooklyn Vegan here, and pick up "Utilitarian" on February 27th.

  2. Wow, they're bringing back the old school artwork.

    Also, I guess every band is doing sax now... Weird. Still this track totally rips. I'm looking forward to the ful album.

    I have to agree with you on the chorus. I didn't mind it so much on the last one, but I think they overdid it a bit on this one. Glad they brought back the FETO style screams, though.
