Interview with Napalm Death


Taking advantage of Napalm Death arrival in Japan for the "Extreme the Dojo vol. 30" with Pig Destroyer and Nasum (that will play their last gig ever in Japan) (view the live report and photos of the show), I am honored to meet Barney, vocalist from Napalm Death.
I was supposed to meet Shane, their bassist, but due to a non serious health problem, he got stuck in the UK and couldn't join the Asian tour.

Barney willingly answers to all my questions ... and we end up discussing for an hour about politics and Japan. The memory of the camera fortunately passed out long before, and here are Barney's interesting answers.

1. The changes in your music, since the beginning of Napalm ? (00:30)

7. Do you live close to each other ? (08:03)
8. How did you come up with this new genre you created ? (08:42)

2. What is the concept in Utilitarian (00:33)

9. What are you reading recently ? (08:55)



Part 3 :
