The second single from Throes of Joy In the Jaws of Defeatism, showcases the band’s continued versatility after more than three decades.
Ahead of the band’s September 18th release of Throes of Joy in the Jaws of Defeatism, Napalm Death has unveiled a second offering from the full length record.
“Amoral” provides a glimpse into the versatility the band is operating with more than three decades deep. The post-punk dynamic of the selection provides a brilliant counter to the audio annihilation of the album’s first single, “Backlash Just Because.”
|“A good shout to work once again with Michael Panduro, as he really adapts his style video to video rather than just using a singular approach,” said Napalm Death vocalist Mark “Barney” Greenway. |
“We delight in a generous helping of the absurd, so for one thing, the footage of children seemingly at play but displaying signs of systemic obedience really propels Shane’s lyrical thrust of our default powerlessness within the pecking order. As sonics go, I think it’s post-punk as fuck and grooves massively and accordingly.”
Throes of Joy in the Jaws of Defeatism showcases peak Napalm as the band continues to champion humanity in their lyrics and agitate in their approach. The album will be available in multiple variations including a bonus version that offers additional tracks, “Feral Carve-up,” “White Kross” (Sonic Youth cover), and “Blissful Myth” (Rudimentary Peni cover).
