Back in 1987 it was running the voice through the metal community via fanzines (and other pre-internet methods of communication) that something had happened in the UK, that some band was doing something completely aberrated and unspeakable, something really extreme. Then the news came, it was a band with a rather uncommon name by the time standards, Napalm Death. Everyone wanted to put their ears on this. Cassettes started to came in with the aural news. I remember receiving one from some guy in the UK which i traded for the first Reencarnación album, also recorded on tape. It was the time when the metal community was real, there was an spirit of true communication, in each corner of the globe some band was blowing heads, everything was new and this new sound and enraged spirit was an atmosphere.

Napalm Death debut was a blast for me, and many from my generation, best of all this was a truly "Internationalle" sort of thing, something completely out of hand, tremendously potent, and different whatsoever. A new whole genre was growing out of it: Agathocles, Carcass, Sorethroat and Extreme Noise Terror among others were following the cult, and we were ready to march on along those lines. At least for a little while.
After the initial shock, the influences started to emerge. Hardcore for sure, some punk and thrash metal and a divergent note of pure experimentalism among a plethora of anti stablishment agenda. The music was pretty concrete Abundant feedback noise coming from nonetheless than Justin Broadrick along with Nik Bullen bass amplification, cymbal buzz and the characteristic manic drumming (Often referred as the fastests drummer back then) from Mick Harris were the trick.
These trinity (unknown at the time) among others like Lee Dorrian would be absolutely influential for everything music wise that would be developing in the near future. They will define and will bring an enormous ammount of new sounds, combinations and ideas into the minds of our age. Industrial music and thus electronica will open the gates for many metalheads via Godflesh, Doom Metal will define an agenda with Lee Dorrian´s Cathedral, while Harris and Bullen will create Scorn and later practically create a new genre called Illbient. A myriad of filaments in these gigantic web of influences.

Napalm Death thus, remains as a memory of a time period in which the metal community was open to create things, a springtime alien to stagnation, hungry for creation and new ways. It also resumes the time being in which three different identities and roads converge to create something unconventional and a wave of events that only later will show its developments. Today it is remembered as a potent testimony of youthful lust and the virulence of human creativity when it is truly determined to act. Noise never was so prophetic.

A powerful punch in the stomach! The best example of punk-hardcore-grindcore mix!

Aside from previous and current members spawning a list of other bands and influencing even more.... I still bow to Justin Broadrick, Mick Harris & Nik Bullen. Pioneers in everything they do. This album starts the path into the labyrinth of experimental genius. Iconic! RAAAWWW!
