Napalm Death have announced Resentment is Always Seismic – a final throw of Throes, a mini-LP that the band calls "an extension of - or partner recording to" their excellent 2020 album Throes of Joy in the Jaws of Defeatism. It includes five new original songs, covers of Bad Brains' "Don't Need It" and Slab!'s "People Pie," and a "Dark Sky Burial Dirge" of the title track track. (Dark Sky Burial is Napalm Death bassist Shane Embury's industrial/electronic album, who just released a new album today.) It comes out February 11 via Century Media (pre-order).

Frontman Mark “Barney” Greenway says, "You can certainly consider Resentment Is Always... as an extension of - or partner recording to - the Throes… album. We had long since wanted to put a mini-album out – in the spirit of the old days – and found we had enough quality tracks even after all the Throes... bonus tracks to do that. Hopefully this mini holds some nice twists in its own right for people, and certainly covering 'People Pie' by Slab! made us really stretch ourselves, which feels great artistically. In the end, resentment is certainly seismic – it can trigger the complete erosion of humanity in many situations. That was the point that I really wanted to hammer home overall."

The first single is opening track "Narcissus," a metalpunk ripper that's just as instantly great as anything on Throes. "'Narcissus' just seemed to fit the bill as one of those rampaging tracks that we always seem to gravitate towards as an album opener," Barney said. "The low-slung concrete mixer bassline at the start really ushers it in nicely. It was written at a time when the ‘alt-right’ was parading itself around, so lyrically I like to think it exposes the vanity and personality cult of that whole thing." Listen below.
