Napalm Death's evolution continued
with "Utopia Banished". Here the band stylistically veer somewhere
between the grindcore noise assaults of their early, seminal albums and the
straightforward death metal of their more recent releases. However, they also
incorporate quite a bit of experimentalism into the synthesis, resulting in a
curious album that doesn't fall into any preconceived category. The band craft
elaborate songs that twist and turn from section to section. A huge progression
for the band after the straightforwardness of "Harmony Corruption".
Here they’ve found an interesting style to explore, to much success. Consider
"Utopia Banished" to be a passingly engaging transition toward the
fruitful harvest that is "Fear Emptiness Despair".
