How many promo videos have Napalm Death
made, and for which songs?
Here are all the Napalm Death promo videos: Mass Appeal Madness The World
Keeps Turning Suffer the Children Plague Rages Greed Killing
Have Brutal Truth been dropped by Earache?
If so, why?
Brutal Truth and Earache parted ways after the 'Need to Control' record,
they then signed to Relapse and recently released the 'Kill Trend Suicide'
mini-LP. It was just a mutual parting of the ways between the band and the
label, no falling out or anything like that - right now they are touring
Does Earache plan to release any boxsets
There are no planned box set releases this year - you never know though.
When can the States expect the video
The video comp. 'Earache MyEye' is out now in the States only.
Will Dub War tour the US in 1997?
Yes, Dub War will tour the US this year, details soon.
When is Napalm Death coming over the
Napalm Death will be over to the States in the summer. Initial dates are
currently listed on the tour page.
I saw Morbid Angel 'Abonimations of
Desolation' in the Earache catalogue. Can you tell me the tracklisting and
also is there any way of getting any videos?
The 'Abominations of Desolation' LP is in fact the legendary demo Morbid
put out prior to the 'Altars of Madness' album. It contains different versions
of the following tracks: The Invocation/Chapel of Ghouls/Unholy Blasphemies/Angel
of Disease/Azagthoth/The Gate - Lord of All Fevers/Hell Spawn/ Abominations/Demon
Seed/Welcome to Hell.
There is no Morbid Angel video comp, although you can get 'Rapture' on the
'Earplugged' comp and 'God of Emptiness' on the 'Rareache' comp.
Where can I find the track "Politics
of Common Sense"? Is it in the Curses to Tour promo?
Yep, the Napalm Death track 'Politics of Common Sense' only featured on
the US limited edition of 'Diatribes' which had a bonus CD with four Napalm
tracks and four At the Gates tracks to promote their tour of last summer.
The 'Cursed to Tour' promo was the same bonus CD issued on its own in a
picture sleeve for radio and press in the US.
Is Cathedral's Supernatural Birth Machine
ever going to be released on vinyl?
No plans for 'Supernatural Birth Machine' to be released on vinyl as yet
- get in touch and complain!!
What happened to bands like Blood from
the Soul, Meathook Seed and Confessor?
Blood from the Soul featured members of Napalm Death and Sick of It All
- it appears to be a one off with no plans for a repeat. Meathook Seed was
made up with members from Napalm and Obituary and despite talk of a follow
up, nothing has happened yet and it remains a one-off. Confessor split a
while ago after releasing just one LP and one EP on Earache.
Whatever happened to Mighty Force and
is it still possible to get their EP? Also, what did the band Carnage become?
Mighty Force - they came, and they went away again. The EP is still available
through Earache Mail Order. Members of Carnage ended up in Dismember - check
their essential debut 'Like An Ever Flowing Stream' for a lesson in Swedish
I know Carcass broke up but how can
I get hold of the new Black Star material?
Black Star's debut will be out on Peaceville this summer - Peaceville does
have a web page at http://www.peaceville.com.
What's the matter with Phil Vane? Is
he in ENT again or not?
No Phil hasn't joined ENT again after the Napalm Death turmoil. And before
anyone asks, no Napalm material featuring Phil survived the recording sessions.
No doubt the good 'ol boy will surface again soon to create a new holocaust
for you lucky lot out there.
Please tell me more about Unseen Terror,
the line-up, releases etc?
Unseen Terror released an early slice of influential grind in the form of
'Human Error.' Featuring Mitch Dickinson (also of Heresy) and Shane Embury
(Napalm Death of course), they also released a cool Peel Sessions if you
can find it. Beware the Garfield worship!
Why did Earache only release Vaders
'The Ultimate Incantation'? Why is Earache letting all the original acts
fall by the wayside? Those first generation grind bands will never be replaced!
Finally will Napaln Death support Machine Head when heading to the States
and so you have a contact address for Napalm Death's management?
The main problem with Vader was essentially one of poor communication between
East and West at that time. Earache isn't letting the original acts fall
by the wayside, of course the first generation grincore scene will never
be replaced - that's exactly the reason why Earache is finding new forms
of extremity. It wouldn't be very exciting to just re-tread the same forms
of music again and again. Also, the best bands have survived and progressed
- Napalm Death and Morbid Angel being two prime examples. No, Napalm Death
will headline their own US tour this summer. Any contact to the Napalm Death
organisation should go to: Napalm Death, PO Box 13238, London SE5 0ZP, UK.
Are there any plans to release a Napalm
Death live video?
No plans for a Napalm Death home video at the moment. You'll be able to
check out the new LP on June 2. Lots of surprises mixed with a few blasts
and some good old Discharge-style stormers. The LP features 12 tracks. The
two extra on the digi are 'Time Will Come' and 'Bled Dry.' Two extra songs
should appear on an EP in September, they are; 'Stranger Now' and 'All Intensive
Purposes.' A few shows were recorded on video from the 'Diatribes' tour
but none are planned to be released - there's probably a million bootlegs
out there as well.
How can I get hold of rare Cathedral
releases like 'Soul Sacrifice' and will they do a concert in Sweden any
The guys have just returned from Australia and Japan, so they'll take a
bit of a rest before a new tour is announced. The 'Soul Sacrifice' EP is
available through Earache Mail Order.
Is IDK on your record label?
IDK's 'Taking on the Monster' is so far a one-off single release on the
New Chapter series, there are no plans for an album or any further collaboration.
We'll keep you posted.
Who is Dub War? I keep hearing the
name but have no idea what they sound like?
In the States Dub War will be a pretty unknown quantity. Over in Europe
the band have already released two albums 'Pain' and 'Wrongside of Beautiful',
and have had a number of singles and EP's make the Top 70 and upwards of
the UK Singles charts. If you're into a mix of dub, rock, reggae and punk
then this will be the band for you. Not easy to pigeonhole or categorise
but well worth checking out. 'Pain' is out Stateside right now, we'll have
details of a US tour soon.
Could you say when Misery Loves Co
are releasing their album and EP outside the UK and the US? I have friends
in Australia and Israel who want copies.
Both the self titled debut LP and the 'Happy?' EP are available worldwide,
including Israel and Australia. Any difficulty in tracking them down can
be solved by ordering direct from Earache Mail Order.
What happened to the Tampa-based band,
After releasing two albums on Earache 'The Key' and 'Thresholds' Earache
and the band parted ways. They did release a red vinyl 7" about two/three
years ago (can't remember the title), and then reportedly split.

I noticed you have some of Zorn's Painkiller
on your list. Do you actually have the CDs in stock?
Painkiller released two albums on Earache, namely 'Buried Secrets' and 'Guts
of A Virgin.' Both are still available through Earache Mail Order.
What bands are going to come to Lithuania
As with any country, we need good promoters to help our bands get to new
countries. No Earache bands are planning gigs in Lithuania because no promoters
have been in touch! If you know any good, reliable promoters in your country
tell them to get in contact with us and maybe we can start things moving!
I've bought most of the Pitch Shifter
back catalogue but can't get hold of either 'Remix Wars' or 'Industrialize'.
I also want to know where I can buy PSi shirts. Also where can I get a T-shirt
like the one worn on the Infotainment sleeve?
Remix Wars is available from (wait for it) Earache Mail Order. The other
one was on MFN/Peaceville. You can get details about Pitch Shifter and also
buy t-shirts by sending an SAE/2IRCs to : PSI, PO Box 59, Nottingham, NG2
The 'TruST Me' T-shirt Jon wears on the sleeve is made by a skatewear company,
based in Nottingham, called STM. You can phone Rollersnakes who stock their
clothes on +44 115 941 6173.
As for OLD, we released a number of albums by them over the years: Old Lady
Drivers The Musical Dimensions of Sleastak Hold onto Your Face Formula All
releases differ in style from one another, so check 'em all out! Once again,
these are available via mail order if you can't track them down.
