Napalm Death - "Leaders not Followers Part. 2"
From Aural Innovations #29 (October 2004)
This is the bands follow up to 1999 release, where they perform covers songs by bands that they hold close to their hearts. There are some more mainstream names that the band cover like Hellhammer, Cryptic Slaughter, Discharge, Kreator, Sepultura, and Agnostic Front, as well as pretty obscure bands like Attitude Adjustment, Dayglo Abortions, Hirax and Anti-Cimex. The longest song on this intense CD is 4:40 and the shortest only 28 seconds (Hirax), while most are in the 2 minute range. I really like the sound production on this CD. They really went for a raw but clear sound to capture that energy of the original. 19 songs in all and it never lets up. Fun stuff.
