And here they are, almost thirty years into their career still releasing wicked music. I was sold on this album when Mitch Harris' vocals kicked in on the Wolf I Feed. Napalm Death usually don't send chills down your spine but that did it. I’d wager that this was Napalm Deaths most popular album since the early 1990’s. A lot of people loved it and it got them on a lot of big tours (sadly as a support act). And it deserves all the accolades it got. Shorter songs + crustier production = wicked album. It was almost my “album of the year” for 2012 until another non-metal band released something in October.
Best Song: Quarantined
