4.0 excellentAlabaster Jones | March 19th 16

A deliciously raw demo from the godfathers of grind, Hatred Surge is a much different Napalm Death from the group that unleashed Scum to the people. Nicholas Bullen, Justin Broadrock, and Miles Ratledge put together what is unequivocally their crustiest work, with the music at hand being more relatable to Killing Joke than Repulsion or Carcass. In this sense, Napalm Death were always on the punkier side of grind, and with a few tracks like "Instinct Of Survival", "Control" and "Caught In A Dream" being heard in their earliest, grind-free forms, it's easy to see this evolution. While there isn't much in the way of recording quality, the emotion put forth by Bullen and Ratledge is palpable, and Broadrick's songwriting was good even then. It's an important listen for fans of Napalm Death, and also fans of crust punk and grind in general.
