NAPALM DEATH Streams New Song “How The Years Condemn”

Friday, 9th January 2015

British grind/death institution NAPALM DEATH are streaming “How the Years Condemn,” a song from their forthcoming 15th studio album, Apex Predator – Easy Meat, which is due on January 27, 2015 (one day earlier internationally) via Century Media Records.

Bassist Shane Embury checks in with the following comment about the track he wrote: “Musically I wanted this track to encompass lots of different rhythms and nuances in the short space of time which the song occupies, which I hope we achieve, and that it bursts with an intensity and emotion to match the theme of the lyrics! Lyrically, it’s a departure from the rest of the new album as its self-reflective. A couple of years ago I was hospitalized prior to a very important tour and was forced to miss out on going and had to stay at home. More importantly, I realized in the time I was in hospital that I really had to make a choice which was either to carry on down the same path of selfish destruction as I had seen some of my friends embark on or stay around for the people I loved and who loved me. Yes, it’s a familiar story, no doubt. but it was an awakening for me, which I very much needed and shortly after I was blessed with the birth of my daughter, so I am glad I made the right decision…

“We are not invincible – Nor are we indestructible. There are choices – points of return…”
