Throughout, the band sound like they’re on fire. Which brings us back to joy. It’s not a frivolous, cheap thing done for lolz, but the realisation that all the shit hasn’t destroyed you. And though the frosty grooves of Invigorating Clutch may be dark, and That Curse Of Being In Thrall’s speed is apoplectic, the cathartic release and adrenaline is capable of reaching through the bleakest times and deepest malaise and shaking you back into life. Napalm Death express a lot of things here – anger, bitterness, fear, uncertainty – but defeat? Not a bit of it.
