Napalm Death – Hatred Surge (1985)

Now this is an interesting window into the pre-grind, proto-formation of Napalm Death. In all my years of Napalm Death fandom I’d never gone back and checked out the early demos, so this was a learning experience for me.

There is a lot of misinformation floating about online about this record. Miles Ratledge (the OG drummer here) has cleared it up in some YouTube comments. The TLDR is that a lot of uploads claiming to be this demo are actually completely different recordings by other bands LOL

All in all I enjoyed this, and its cool to hear very early versions of some tracks which would just become blurs of noise on the Scum album.
