Napalm Death and other extreme metal bands hit Blender - Drew Kassl
Saturday, April 11th at 8pm for $21 (16 and over)
Blender Theatre at Gramercy
127 E 23RD ST
They’re faster than a dive-bombing Superman clichè, more powerful than Slumdog Millionaire, and they’re able to scale lofty political thesis in a single belch। They’re...Napalm Death. Sure, Birmingham, England's finest extreme-metal ensemble hasn't changed too much, sonically, since inventing grind-core on their 1987 debut, Scum—other than the 14 musicians who have passed through their ranks. Front man, Barney Greenway's snarky between-song banter ("You gotta watch for it," he said last year after the band played the one-second song, "You Suffer") and the group's caffeinated rhythm section make for a seriously entertaining gig. Also playing with Napalm Death on Saturday, April 11 is Kataklysm, Toxic Holocaust, Coliseum, and Trap Them. It’s a 16 and over show for $21 and the Blender Theatre doors open at 8.
