NAPALM DEATH To Play Entire New Album At Hometown Show

Vocalist Mark "Barney" Greenway of the British grindcore pioneers NAPALM DEATH has told The Quietus web site that the band will play a one-off hometown show on January 31, 2009.

The gig, set to take place at the Asylum in Hockley, Birmingham, will see NAPALM playing its soon-to-be-released new album, "Time Waits For No Slave", in its entirety for the first and only time.

Tickets for the gig are priced at a very reasonable £10, and are available from Ticket Factory and Ticket Web. Doors are at 7:00 p.m.

Fan-filmed video footage of NAPALM DEATH performing two new songs — "Diktat" and "On The Brink Of Extinction" — at this year's Damnation Festival on November 22 in Leeds, UK can be viewed below (clip uploaded by Dave Ingham a.k.a. YouTube user "triptykon").

Mark "Barney" Greenway recently spoke to U.K.'s Rock Sound magazine about, "Time Waits For No Slave", due to hit stores in February through Century Media.

"Each album appears to have got progressively better and better," he said. "There was no great master plan, really. We're just a very organic band, very spontaneous, and we just try to write the best songs possible. If there is anything in the back of our minds, then I think it's that we always try to make each album differ without losing the thread of what should be there and I think we've done that with this album."

"I still feel really humbled to be a part of the whole NAPALM DEATH experience," he continued. "People consider us to be a pioneering band, and once you've achieved that, what else is going to satisfy you? I get to work with some pretty unique musicians that come up with riffs and material that still blows me away, and it was no different for this record."
