METALCAMP OPEN AIR FESTIVAL announce that the British grincore Metallers, NAPALM DEATH confirmed for METALCAMP 2012.
“27 years of grindcore ultra-violence, 27 years of being one of the hardest working, hardest touring bands on this miserable planet, NAPALM DEATH’s conviction, energy and belief in spontaneoust, outspoken yet extreme music is far from being watered down. “Utilitarian“ (release date Feb 24), the band’s 14th studio album marks no exception – as long as this is a world gone wrong, NAPALM DEATH will be utilizing their artistic arsenal to attack those in charge, no matter if their fanaticism stems from a political, religious or simply greedy motivation.
Once again, NAPALM DEATH’s concerns are realised through intense, devastatingly brutal songs that venture into groovier, neckbreaking mid-tempo passages to allow the listener to take a breath before vicious blast beats pummel you out of existence.
While NAPALM DEATH is a prominent example on how to put words into action and has taken part in several benefit-based activities in the past, vocalist Mark “Barney” Greenway is also engaged in fighting for musicians’ rights through the Musician’s Union (a UK-based trade union) and strives for fairness for music followers via the same organisation.
Renowned for their ceaseless touring activities and stellar live performances, following the album’s release NAPALM DEATH will be promoting their new record live worldwide – remaining at the helm of today’s extreme music scene and humbly yet ferociously solidifying their legendary status once again!” METALCAMP OPEN AIR posted.
So far these bands have been confirmed for 2012:
