NAPALM DEATH “Punishment In Capitals” /Digipack CD; Live/
zoom Zoom image

The third official live album by legendary British Grindcore/Death Metal band.
Napalm Death has always been an interesting anomaly in the Metal Underground: generally considered to be the inventors of Grindcore, the band eventually became a ragged patchwork of Punk, Death Metal, and Hardcore that was simultaneously sloppy, technical, unwaveringly ugly, and downright vicious. And political - proof being this recording made at a 2002 London animal rights benefit gig. Hence the anomaly; while slaughter, fantasy, and war are thematic crutches for much of the Metal Underground, Napalm Death is intent on righting the injustices of the world.
"Punishment In Capitals" does a decent job of capturing the bands's focus and intensity on-stage, the band rampaging through 28 songs in 90 minutes, from haphazardly arranged early donkey punches "Scum" and "Lucid Fairytale" to latter-day pneumatic drillers "Can't Play Won't Pay" and "Breed to Breathe".
Long-in-the-tooth Napalm punters will find plenty of meat and potatoes to consume in "Punishment In Capitals", and the general no-bones-about-it approach nicely conveys the compelling grit of the hard-working and rightfully well-respected band at its center!!
It was recorded at the London ULU on 12 April 2002 at an animal rights benefit gig.
