3.0 goodKarl V.H. | February 25th 12

These guys are unstoppable. Anyone that thinks they aren't still relevant after 25+ years, fuck off and die!

Utilitarian is a fast, heavy, relentless listen- and that's not all. Indeed, what helps Utilitarian stand apart from its contemporaries is the fact that there is more going on on it than most records of its type- moments of brilliance, such as John Zorn's saxophone on "Everyday Pox" (also perhaps my favourite Napalm Death track ever), the choir on "Blank Look About Face", and the epic layering of intro "Circumspect" all elevate the record. Of course, there is also the usual heavy riffage and aggression one expects from a Napalm Death release, but the aforementioned experimentation is welcome. Indeed, more of it would be even better! Also, some songs fall through the cracks; but, overall, Utilitarian is a successful release. 4.0

0.0 ASnideRemark | March 3rd 12

Boasting sheer chaos, great synchronization, powerful guitar riffs, even greater pacing and well placed instrumentation. Napalm Death have proved that even after 25 years of creating music they are still at the top of their game and constantly improving, even throwing in some new unexpected surprises for the genre itself, like the use of the saxophone.
