Finally after more than 25 years, I got to witness the herb drenched Brujeria storm a stage. A band that has always had an intriguing edge both musically and aesthetically with their very own melange of death and grindcore.
Napalm Death has always been an interesting and subversive animal and their latest emission, Apex Predator – Easy Meat does not disappoint. Based on a foundation of their trademarked speed charged grindcore, peppered with the right amount of dirge core and dystopian visions that are dealt with in the lyrical department, while the message is one of peace, love and looking out for one another – heavy topics set to heavy music without lacking the occasional indication of a sense of humour.
In a live environment Napalm Death remains a crushing force that excels and exceeds what is presented in recorded form. The diverse set comprised of new songs alongside crowd favourites was received adequately by the local aficionados on a school night that reveled in being battered.
An evening that cemented Napalm Death’s relevance.
