Napalm Death rarities

Posted by Loren on March 17, 2018

At the end of the month, Napalm Death will drop Coded Smears And More Uncommon Slurs, a 31-track rarities compilation on 2xCD/2LP and digital formats. Handled by Century Media Records, it officially releases on March 30.

Bassist Shane Embury explains the record like this:

We are very thrilled to be finally releasing this compilation of rarities and covers from the past 10 years. NAPALM DEATH is a band that gives 100% when writing a song, so the songs included on this comp were saved originally for split EP's now sold out or vinyl editions of our albums or to become Japanese bonus tracks. When I was compiling the track-listing I was struck by how exciting again these tunes are to me. I had actually forgotten some of them, haha! We have written so many tracks and the years go by so quick that you forget just how fucking great these songs are! We will most certainly be blasting a few of these out live on our upcoming shows…Cheers and see you on the road!
