Napalm Death – Time Waits for No Slave

Napalm Death
Time Waits for No Slave
Century Media

Napalm Death is one of the all-time greats. Not many 20-years-old bands stay this relevant, much less remain genre leaders. The band has perfectly refined its hardcore and metal roots. Actually, that happened 10 years ago with Enemy of the Music Business. The band’s music is no longer grind; it’s simply Napalm Death.

“Life and Limb” kicks ass. This is a metalcore song, if you define metalcore metal and hardcore together and, at least a little bit, it sounds like Strapping Young Lad. The Nasum influence is strong on “Fallacy Dominion.” It’s cool that Napalm Death is influenced by their own influence via Nasum. Throughout Time Waits for No Slave, traces can be heard of Napalm Death’s various tour partners from the last few years. Cheers to an excellent band still doing it after all these years.
