UK Grindcore pioneers NAPALM DEATH are about to start a massive touring campaign across North America as part of the “Savage Imperial Death March Tour” together with The Melvins and Melt Banana. Therefore, a new video clip for the track “Dear Slum Landlord” off NAPALM DEATH’s 15th and much praised current studio album “Apex Predator – Easy Meat” has been launched now.
This very special clip for “Dear Slum Landlord” was created by Costin Chioreanu / Twilight Media and includes performance footage shot by Oliver Barth / Visions In Fear. The video is being premiered today via the website of NPR here: http://www.npr.org/event/music/469526688/napalm-deaths-dear-slum-landlord-video-grimly-depicts-housing-greed
NAPALM DEATH vocalist Mark “Barney” Greenway checked in to comment on the video as follows: “Being a very queasy and deliberately monotone kind of song, we felt simplicity was the key with the video for ‘Dear Slum Landlord’. Suitably, thanks to two production people in Oliver and Costin – who really understand the contrasting elements of Napalm Death – it’s simple, desolate, black and white and just that little bit grim, befitting the subject matter of interconnected housing/labour exploitation which does its best to remain hidden from view.”
