Napalm Death's Scum: the blueprint for grindcore as it exists today. Armed with only some low production value and some piss and vinegar, this album is guaranteed to be either hit or miss. Musically the pace is chaotic and quick throughout, and vocally it's not much different. You won't be able to understand a word of it, but it's irrelevant in long run; this album pioneered grindcore. You should check this album out only if you're into Napalm Death, grindcore, or aggressive low-fi chaos.
The paragon of intensity. Napalm Death's debut full-length plots out the future of grind core masterfully. From the muddled verses backed by blast beats and finger-numbing riffs to the old school thrashy moments, everything melds together well. The lyrics are interesting in their simplicity, even if one may find their politics to be dubious. A landmark release.
