I would have loved to have seen this exchange between the sound guy and a worried V&A Manager -

Napalm Death's singer, Mark 'Barney' Greenway, told The Times he was not entirely surprised by the V&A's decision to pull the plug. "They [the museum] started asking the sound guy fairly nervously: 'What will the volume be like?' He was like, 'What can I tell you? They make a lot of noise'."

It seems like a normal volume to me.
Even though it ultimately did not happen, the idea was good I think. I hope they can achieve doing this in the future.

Volume load enough to make clay sculptures explode is normal? Rémy I can't imagine what you consider to be loud.

I hope they find another venue too. It siunds like an excellent idea for a collaboration

I was a bit sarcastic and I must confess I always wear ear protection. At least when it's possible.
The last show I did was incredibly loud, I was near the loudspeakers and the protection I brought were falling every minute. So I had to hear it "natural" and I got tinnitus during 24hours.

But I'm a bit curious about the amount of volume it need to destroy sculpture. 120dB must be a good point to start but I'm not sure.

They've released too much good stuff to put them in crap. I've seen them twice, both times putting on a good show. The second show Barney went on stage with his fly open and a guy in the front row zipped it up for him.

One of my very favorite bands. The string of releases since "Enemy..." have been absolutely brutal and fantastic in their consistency. They blow away just about every band working in the idiom of death/grind/whatever. Never Crap. I can even dig on the groove grind stuff they did in the later 90s.

You sure about that?

As soon as Napalm’s fury began, so did the gang’s. Violent and bloody fights were breaking out everywhere. My roommate was in the balcony watching the fights from above – he couldn’t believe his eyes. There was nothing that the club security could do – the violence was way to extreme and it was in every corner of the room. They had no choice but to frantically call the police, otherwise it was not just gang members who were going to get hurt.

Just before the police stormed the venue, a huge pile-up broke out on the floor – right in the middle of the mosh-pits. Yes, unbelievably, the mosh pits continued, even during the gang violence – amazing! Almost in unison, all the gangsters jumped off of the pile and stood in a circle. The circle quickly opened and out came a slow, stumbling man. He was shirtless and dripping wet with sweat. People began pointing fingers at the man and jaws began to drop. Then I saw it. The man’s stomach was sliced wide open – the only thing holding his belly together was his hand. His innards began to poke out of the gaping, bloody wound – he shoved them back in with his left hand. I had never seen anything like it. Then, to make things even more unbelievable, he started jumping up and down and then he started running around the club and “high-fiveing” people with his right hand as he held his guts in with his left hand. Perhaps he was smoking some of that Angel Dust that was going around that night.

Some may argue Repulsion or Siege as the Grind-Daddy but as I never saw records from either one til utube I'm fine with giving Napalm Death the Captain's chair. They are the Melvins of grind.
Not to mention I always appreciated the political content of their lyrics.
Not crap.

will be seeing them on the 3rd for the 3rd time.

I collaborated with founding ND member Nic Bullen last weekend, diffusing our piece built from found sounds and manipulated domestic recordings at the awesome BEASTdome at Birmingham University, a fully immersive electro-acoustic theatre with over thirty configurable speakers. This was a terrific experience and, if modesty allows, an absolute triumph. Nic remains one of the most knowledgeable people I know and seems to have an illimitable appetite for all music, super great guy. The only element of weirdness was the slightly well-heeled, very polite audience soaking up our racket.

The first 2 Peel sessions are perfect. Five fucking stars. All the early grind stuff is great, but the Peel sessions are so well recorded and it gives them a legitimacy that the albums lack. That music is some of the most inventive, energetic and inspiring music this country has ever produced.

Most of their catalogue after the glory days sounds oddly transitional, and while that urge is admirable, they never sound like they fully thought out where they were going. Harmony Corruption should have been a world beater on paper, but it's a dull listen to this day.

Having said that, I think Fear, Emptiness, Despair and Enemy Of The Music Business hit more than they miss.

Fear, Emptiness, Despair is actually the one I go to the most. But I'm a bigger fan of 90's metal than i am of grindcore, so I guess that just makes sense.

Either way, solid Not Crap.
Kerouacian as fuck.

I saw them on Saturday with Voivod(!) Stood at the front of the stage the whole time. I headbanged. Took several boots to the head from stage divers/crowd surfers. Forgot to wear earplugs. Took 3 showers yesterday. Still not feeling right. Totally worth it.

The new record is great.

There's 3 sessions on that collection.

Sessions 1 & 2 have the From Enslavement... line-up of Dorrian, Steer, Embury and Harris. These are blinding, the best grind / extreme metal / whatever that you'll ever hear.

The third session has a weird transitional line-up with Barney, Jesse (but not Mitch yet) on guitar, Embury and Harris. They mostly play older material and don't do a great job.

There is a 4th BBC session (not with Peel, I think) that was recorded around the time of Diatribes that was included on some other collection. It's forgettable.
