NAPALM DEATH frontman Mark "Barney" Greenway recently spoke to U.K.'s Rock Sound magazine about the band's new album, "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."
