The big (& certainly most noteworthy) event of the Merdeka festivities is NOT the fireworks, the parades or even the shocking victory of M'sia U-23 footie team over Myanmar. It's the much awaited return of seminal grindcore band Napalm Death who will be performing at Ruums Club, Jln Sultan Ismail, 5pm Sat, Sep1, 2007. (Tickets - RM50 from Tower Records)
This very noisy & extreme outfit are not yer typical satan-worshipping, virgin sacrificing heavy metallers. Rather their music/noise tackles issues of capitalism gone mad, global warfare & various other content of non-sulphuric origin.
Napalm Death is one of the most extreme bands out there & have been in existence since 1988. Expand yer mind & bleed them eardrums!
PS: For more info, please watch the short films above on the band & grindcore scene.
