Napalm Death – Mentally Murdered (1989)

Mentally murdered was the final recording with the arguably definitive classic lineup of Dorrian, Harris, Steer and Embury. The tracks here are more long-form but retain the nastiness and savagery of the FETO sound. On another note, the guitar tone is almost identical to the one Bill Steer uses on the Carcass record Symphonies Of Sickness – this here was a good year for music!

Available in a confusing array of 7”, 12”, CD and compilation repackages (just fuck all that off and get Death By Manipulation) but the important thing is that this seminal record is heard.
