Napalm Death – Utopia Banished LP
After catching a bunch of flack for going death metal on Harmony Corruption, they seemingly caught just as much flack for taking a few steps back toward grind on Utopia Banished. Lots of folks seem to find a reason to hate on this album, whether it’s production, songwriting, the lack of Mick Harris, still being too death metal, etc. Whatever. Utopia Banished is tight and contains some total rippers. Don’t be a dork. FDR edition on black vinyl.
Released by Earache Records.
