Napalm Death – Death By Manipulation (1991)

I’ve always avoided this compilation because I’ve been collecting all the early Napalm Death stuff separately, but I have indeed been missing the fuck out. There is something about the track order on this thing, but it’s just back to back bangers and a dream Napalm line up of tunes.

Most tracks are from the muddy early-death metal days of the band, but the final tracks veer off into the stinking grindcore sound the band had so much perfected in the late 80s. A brilliant compilation of stuff.
