UK Grindcore pioneers NAPALM DEATH will be releasing their new studio album “Throes of Joy in the Jaws of Defeatism” on September 18th, 2020 via Century Media Records.

“Throes of Joy in the Jaws of Defeatism” is the highly anticipated follow-up to 2015’s acclaimed “Apex Predator – Easy Meat” album and the 16th (!) studio album effort by NAPALM DEATH. It was again recorded with longtime producer Russ Russell and features artwork by Frode Sylthe.

From the pinnacle of confrontational instrumental extremity and steadfast lyrical humanity, NAPALM DEATH’s new album warps musical landscapes all over again. “Throes of Joy in the Jaws of Defeatism” includes 12 songs seething with caustic evolution and unrelenting scope. Here is the track-listing for the standard edition of the album:
