Napalm Death – Mass Appeal Madness (1991)

A nasty little EP which went on to appear alongside a bunch of others on the Death By Manipulation compilation. There’s some interesting takes here, most notable is the “death metalled” re-recording of “Unchallenged Hate” and “Social Sterility” from FETO, but with Barney on vokills, although it sounds like the higher vocals are left in from the earlier session.

I think this was also one of the last recordings the band done with Mick Harris. All in all the recordings are crisp and well produced with a fat low end, even though some of Mick’s cymbal sounds come across like fucking maracas because they are so compressed haha
