can’t exactly say I’m a fan of Napalm
Death and this brand new album called ”Smear Campaign” won’t
change much. Not that I totally dislike this release... no, no, but I
have always had a small problem with their music. I actually enjoy
listening to an album by Napalm Death but when the CD is done - nothing
really stands out!
Death stands for sheer brutality and most of their songs are f*****g
fast and f*****g aggressive. We get 16 songs and the Limited Edition
Digipack and Vinyl versions of this album will include two exclusive
audio bonus tracks.
this promo-CD I have been listening to for days contains 16 songs and
most of them sound very much the same to me. And apart from a few riffs
here and there nothing really stands out. Okay let’s be fair - one
track is great - track number 10, ”Shattered Existence” contains one
hell of a drum-rhythm and awesome guitar-work, but the rest of the songs
are way to similar. Don’t get me wrong here - I DO like my music very
brutal but somehow this bands music won’t get to me. It doesn't leave
me wanting to play it again and again and therefore becomes quite
anonymous after a short while.
album would probably be great for some, especially for Napalm Death
fans, I’m sure... and awful for others but for me it’s just above
How anybody can play this fast without losing their breath is beyond me
production suits the music fine and I think you can buy this album
blindfolded if you are a fan of Napalm Death.
