Availability : In stock

  • Description

    Many consider Repulsion the true founders and legends of grindcore, but this is debatable because technically Napalm Death formed before them. Originally, on their first few demos, Napalm Death was a punk band focused on political/social things. However, they decided to stick with Napalm Death because it was "different" and best described how they felt. The only track oavailable from this era is "The Crucifixion of Possessions" from the 1984 Crass Records compilation Bullshit Detector Vol 3. After Broadrick joined the band, they began to incorporate extreme metal influences and eventually would evolve into grindcore. Their main source of inspiration originally came from bands like Discharge, Siege and D.R.I. Napalm Death were one of the first signed bands on the legendary death/grind label Earache ("Scum” is cataloged at MOSH3). For years the band was considered to be one of the most extreme bands ever. They were notorious during their grindcore days for selling out shows at the infamous Mermaid Club, Birmingham.
