Biography

Birmingham, England (1981 – present)

Napalm Death is a / band from Birmingham, England. The band was formed in the village of Meriden near Birmingham, England in 1981 by Nicholas Bullen and Miles Ratledge.

Although other groups had previously played fast and aggressive music, Napalm Death is credited with defining the Grindcore genre through its fusion of punk and metal musical structures, aggressive playing, fast tempos, and deep guttural vocals. The group coined the term ‘Grind’ to describe the music they played in reference to the sound of American group Swans.

There are no original members left in the band: indeed, the early history of the band is one of constant member rotation - by the second side of its debut album “Scum” in 1987, the band did not contain any original members.

Napalm Death have released 14 albums to date, the latest being “Utilitarian”.
