3.0 goodWizard | February 25th 12

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

★★ I formerly had a soundoff for this album, but Sputnik doesn't let you delete soundoffs, so I
replaced the soundoff with this. Check out my new account, EasterInTheBatcave, for all of my
soundoffs and reviews, including the one for this album. ★★

3.0 goodEasterInTheBatcave | June 9th 16

Utilitarian is a fast, heavy, relentless listen-- and that's not all. Indeed, there are moments of experimental brilliance here, 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." Of course, there is also the usual heavy riffage and aggression one expects from a Napalm Death release, but that aforementioned experimentation is welcome. Indeed, more of it would make this record even better. Overall, Utilitarian is a good release, despite some songs falling through the cracks.

Bump

0.0 | 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.
