Napalm Ted – Into A Black Ooze Review
Napalm Ted is a three man Grindcore / Death Metal act from Oulu, Finland. With associations where Napalm Death meets that Seth Macfarlane´s Ted character, I was a bit wary when we were approached to review their new EP Into A Black Ooze, but fortunately Napalm Ted is not a joke band after all!
Into A Black Ooze
The first track, Born! delivers a fierce start to the EP. It a slap on the face with a shovel that has been used to dig up hobo bodies. Next up is Vegadeth… Napalm Ted´s way of humor has suddenly become clear… Vegadeth slips out of my mind almost right away because third track Harlequin blew it away. Only down to third song and I´m already blasting on the table! RAW AND BRUTAL! That´s how it needs to be. As the songs go by, my fingers have shortened 1/3 of what they used to be. Table blasting kills. Napalm Ted is fucking great stuff.
Into A Black Ooze is a well balanced, well played, yet raw and brutal work of art. Grooves and blasts go well together and Into A Black Ooze is very enjoyable creation. This music does not make you want to laugh. Recommended to everyone who appreciates simple but fast music.
