Do you fancy hearing a brand spanking new Napalm Death song? Of course you do, so read on and and get your grind on…

The song, ‘Cesspits’, is taken from the band’s upcoming album ‘Apex Predator – Easy Meat’ (their fifteenth record to date!), which will be released via Century Media on January 26th, 2015 in Europe and January 27th, 2015 in North America.

Frontman Barney Greenway had this to say about the new album:

“Sometimes you have to ponder long and hard for an album title, but following the Rana Plaza disaster of last year (collapse of a textile sweatshop building in Bangladesh), it spurred me on to try and craft an expose of slave labour in the modern world (and the surrounding conditions propping it up).”Some in power like to declare that slavery is consigned to the history books. But if you look beneath the surface it is alive and well in many different forms – it just has a different face now, and exists in ways that may seem ethically ambiguous. Using the terminology of evolution particularly interests us, so in this case the ‘Apex Predator’ represents those who bring the slavery to bear (and capitalise from it), and the ‘Easy Meat’ is of therefore those who feel they have no option but to comply.”Fittingly, the music on ‘Apex Predator – Easy Meat’ is punishing. We feel it’s more ambient, more expansive, more unsettlingly discordant than ever, and importantly, still extremely rampant at excessive speed. We hope in every respect – both musically and lyrically – this album will make your eyes burn with the harsh sonics and harsh visions of the dumping ground of globalisation.”
And on the song ‘Cesspits’ in particular, he added:

“‘Cesspits’ is both literally and figuratively about people living in holes. It is perhaps one of the ultimate indignities and one of those things that a blind eye is often turned to. The subject matter called for a very savage delivery, and although there are quite a few musical facets to this song, it doesn’t stop letting rip.”
