"Time Waits For No Slave", the new album from British grindcore pioneers NAPALM DEATH, has entered the German Media Control chart at position No. 95.
"Time Waits For No Slave" will be released in the U.S. on February 10 via Century Media Records. The CD was recorded with producer Russ Russell. Drums were tracked at Parlour Studios in Kettering and guitars, bass and vocals were done at Foel Studios in Wales. The band then returned to Parlour for the mixing sessions.
Vocalist Mark "Barney" Greenway recently told Rock Sound magazine about "Time Waits For No Slave", "Each album appears to have got progressively better and better. 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."
