30 years of Grindcore ultra-violence, 27 years of being one of the hardest working, hardest touring bands on this miserable planet, NAPALM
DEATH’s conviction, energy and belief in spontaneous, outspoken yet extreme music is far from being watered down. “Time Waits For No
Slave”, the band’s 13th studio album (excluding the cover album “Leaders Not Followers Pt.2”) marks no exception – as long as this is a
world gone wrong, NAPALM DEATH will be utilizing their artistic arsenal to attack those in charge, no matter if their fanaticism stems from a
political, religious or simply greedy motivation.
On “Time Waits For No Slave” the legendary fathers of grindcore explore fundamental aspects of our so-called modern life and point out
that ideas of servitude are still existent in the allegedly tolerant, liberal society we live in. Despite the old cliché that “we are living in the
21st century” for one thing, women are still sneered at, treated like second-class citizens and viewed in some quarters as baby machines
rather than beings in their own right. Giving up our own ideals, wishes and desires to fit into the all too tight conventions still prevalent
today might be a very general sounding subject, but the question is: if our freedom is true to the meaning of the word, this is something that
affects us all!
Once again, NAPALM DEATH’s concerns are realized through intense, devastatingly brutal songs that venture into groovier, neck breaking
mid-tempo passages to allow the listener to take a breath before vicious blast beats pummel you out of existence.
