In anticipation of their new album, Apex Predator - Easy Meat, grindcore legends NAPALM DEATH have now revealed the album's cover art. Their 15th studio album release is due out via Century Media Records on January 26th in Europe and January 27th in North America.

The album’s artwork, which can be seen below, was created by Danish designer Frode Sylthe/ Friktion.com, who has previously worked on the band’s last album Utilitarian as well as with bands such as AT THE GATES, TOTALT JAVLA MORKER, THE HAUNTED and BURST.

NAPALM DEATH's Shane Embury commented about the artwork: “There are many meanings that you could grab from the new album artwork, I think. But one is the representation of how our natural and most basic needs for happiness and communication are being stripped away by materialism and pre-packaged garbage - crap that we don't need, filtered to us through the media via the megacorporations with the goal to maintain the bloated bottom line of profit. It's all just stuff that will be obsolete in 6 months time. And behind the scenes of course, modern day slavery is alive, well and obscured by this facade. It's all an exercise in deceit to shower us with fake fulfilment, while the poor and underprivileged fall further by the wayside“.

Mark 'Barney' Greenway chimed in: “Across the albums, we have had some very complex and interconnected artwork. This time we wanted to keep it more simple - strip it down perhaps to a single image that would sharpen the focus. I loved the idea of the supermarket-style packaging as soon as I saw it, as when you go into one of those places with nourishment in mind and you're greeted with some miserable, artificially-enhanced foodstuff contained in a bleak little receptacle of industrial plastics, it doesn't exactly inspire you. To then fill that plastic tray with the dregs of meat production, well, that is the 'easy meat' in the title - representing the people who suffer for burgeoning consumption degraded and dumped in the most pitiful way”.

Apex Predator - Easy Meat tracklisting:

  • "Apex Predator - Easy Meat"

Tour dates:

  • 1.22-26 - Florida/Jamaica - 70,000 Tons Of Metal Cruise
And as previously announced, NAPALM DEATH and VOIVOD will join forces at the end of January for a North American Tour, aptly titled the Through Space And Grind Tour, but without member Mitch Harris. The band commented on his absence:

"Due to illness within his family, we would like to announce that Mitch Harris will unfortunately not be performing with us for the near future. We stress that this is not a permanent arrangement, although we are unsure exactly when Mitch will return under the circumstances.

Naturally, we sympathise and wish Mitch all the best for now. In the meantime we will be joined by guitarists who we know can grind it out in his absence. Thanks for your understanding..."
