We recently had the pleasure of speaking with booming Napalm Death vocalist Barney Greenway during his stint on the 2013 Decibel Magazine tour, one of the most sonically brutal touring bills ever put together. Along with detailing the most memorable aspects of the tour, we spoke with Barney about new Napalm Death material, the band performing much of the 'Scum' record + much more.
Napalm Death vocalist Barney Greenway is one of the most outspoken musicians in the world of metal. When he's not using his terrifyingly booming voice to sonically brutalize his audience, the otherwise soft-spoken frontman often shares his views on a great deal of social and political issues. In our most recent interview with Greenway, we gave him the floor to speak about any issue of his choice, and the vocalist chose to address his support for gay marriage.
