NAPALM DEATH Interviewed At BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR Festival; Video Available

British music channel Scuzz TV conducted an interview with vocalist Mark "Barney" Greenway and bassist Shane Embury of the UK grindcore pioneers NAPALM DEATH at the Bloodstock Open Air 2008 festival, which was held August 15-17 at Catton Hall in Derbyshire, England. Watch the chat below.

NAPALM DEATH is currently recording its new album, "Time Waits For No Slave", with producer Russ Russell. Drums have been tracked at Parlour Studios in Kettering and guitars, bass and vocals will be done at Foel Studios in Wales. The band will then return to Parlour for the mixing sessions. Expect the new album to surface in early 2009 via Century Media Records.

NAPALM DEATH bassist Shane Embury recently spoke to Paul Travers of about the band's upcoming thirteenth full-length studio album. "We've got about seventeen songs together," Embury said. "I guess it's moving on again from the last album [2006's 'Smear Campaign']. It's still very fast and hopefully heavy. There's a couple of strange kind of moments in the music, with a little more experimentation and a little more discordance in the guitar perhaps. I think Barney's [Greenway] trying to move forward vocally in some areas like he did on tracks like 'Smear Campaign' and 'Persona Non Grata'."

NAPALM DEATH will only interrupt its studio work for a few select shows in the fall. The details are as follows:

Oct. 03 - Lichtenfels, Germany - WOD Festival
Oct. 31 - Chalon Sur Saone, France - La Peniche
Nov. 01 - Nancy, France - Láutre Canal
Nov. 02 - Vitry Le Francois, France - Orange Bleue
Nov. 22 - Leeds, England - Damnation Festival
