Napalm Death, ‘Utilitarian’ – Top 2012 Metal Albums

Napalm Death fans expected an awesome album with ‘Utilitarian,’ but the quality of the record completely redefines what the band is capable of creating conceptually. Instead of simply offering the relentless grindcore punishment that Napalm pioneered, ‘Utilitarian’ boasts brilliant experimentation as well. From the chaotic squealing of a saxophone on ‘Everyday Pox,’ to guitarist Mitch Harris contributing clean singing, yes, clean singing, in ‘The Wolf I Feed’ and various other tracks, the craftsmanship of ‘Utilitarian’ is that of a masterwork.
