Napalm Death head to Damnation Festival


Death and Damnation…

Napalm Death have two major UK appearances lined up for the end of the year, writes Paul Castles. Birmingham’s legendary grindcore giants have been confirmed for this year’s Damnation Festival at Leeds University on Saturday 3 November.

If you can’t make the one-day indoor Yorkshire extreme fest then be sure to catch Napalm when they play a rare hometown show at The Mill in Birmingham on Saturday 1 December.

The extreme metal pioneers are currently performing alongside Slayer, Lamb of God, Anthrax and Testament in a massive US tour. They have also added a string of additional shows supporting Lamb of God.

Bassist Shane Embury said: “Napalm Death are very excited to be part of the second leg of Slayer’s farewell tour! Having been a fan since back in the day, I never would have thought when I bought the import copy of Show No Mercy that playing grindcore would catapult us into this universe.”

Following the North American tour, Napalm will jet to South and Latin America with Cannibal Corpse for an entire month worth of dates.


They have most recently released a special compilation entitled Coded Smears And More Uncommon Slurs which gathers a total of 31 songs in a playing time of over 90 minutes, including rarities and exclusive earworms spanning 2004-2016.

The 2xLP edition doesn’t only contain a poster and an LP-booklet, but is – next to an unlimited black vinyl version – also available in the following limited coloured vinyl runs: 100x copies white vinyl (CM Webshop Europe / Sold out!), 200x copies neon orange vinyl (CM USA), 200x copies silver vinyl (NBR) and 400x copies red vinyl (CM Distro / Sold out!).
