UK Grindcore pioneers NAPALM DEATH are now launching a video clip for the opening track “Standardization” off their special 2CD, 2LP and Digital Download compilation “Coded Smears And More Uncommon Slurs”, recently released via Century Media Records.
NAPALM DEATH vocalist Mark “Barney“ Greenway checked in with the following comment about the clip: “Videos I find one of the trickiest mediums to make vibrant and impactful. Costin, the producer though, had a lot of stuff from our Roadburn Festival presentation which seemed to fit the music quite nicely and reflect the song’s subject matter about the utter despair of a colourless life and desire of more conservative forces for a homogenous world according to gender, sexuality, human habits and, well, generally everything. No thanks!”
“Coded Smears And More Uncommon Slurs” includes a total of 31 songs in a playing time of over 90 minutes, compiling rarities and exclusive earworms spanning 2004-2016 from the whirling gene pool of noise that is NAPALM DEATH.
The 2LP edition of “Coded Smears And More Uncommon Slurs” doesn’t only contain a poster and an LP-booklet, but is – next to an unlimited black vinyl version – also available in the following limited coloured vinyl runs: 100x copies white vinyl (CM Webshop Europe / Sold out!), 200x copies neon orange vinyl (CM USA), 200x copies silver vinyl (NBR) and 400x copies red vinyl (CM Distro / Sold out!).
