Scum (Napalm Death album)
Scum is the debut studio album by English grindcore band Napalm Death. It was released on 1 July 1987 through Earache Records. Side A of Scum was recorded for £50.00 at Rich Bitch studio in August 1986. It was intended to form part of a split release with English crossover thrash band Atavistic on Manic Ears. After an extensive line-up change, the second half of Scum was recorded in May 1987 at Rich Bitch studio; the two sides were released as a single album. Only drummer Mick Harris played on both sides of the album; the first pressing of the CD came as a 54-track CD, which included the From Enslavement to Obliteration album and four bonus tracks. In 1994, the first two albums were re-released separately. A remastered version was released on 27 January 2012; the album cover was designed by Bill Steer's Carcass bandmate Jeffrey Walker. The album covers came in varied colours: orange, green and yellow; the song "You Suffer" was listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the world's shortest song. Scum is considered by many to be the first grindcore album released.
In 2005, Scum was voted the 50th best British album of all time by Kerrang! readers, in 2009 was ranked number 5 in Terrorizer's list of essential European grindcore albums. Scum is listed in Robert Dimery's book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.

Utilitarian is the fourteenth studio album by British grindcore band Napalm Death. It was released in the UK on 27 February 2012 and globally on 28 February 2012. Utilitarian was recorded in 2011. A 7" vinyl single for "Analysis Paralysis" was released in January 2012; when asked, vocalist Mark "Barney" Greenway stated that he was quite proud of the new album, saying, "The thing you have to consider about Napalm Death is that no two albums sound the same, what makes this album unique. Whilst we stick to the same aggressive tone that fans are used to, we have added other technical elements in it to make it stand out. It's still a rock album, but it's something we do to it to make it fresh."When the recording sessions for the then-untitled album had finished, Napalm Death extended their worldwide contract with Century Media on a number of future albums. According to vocalist Mark Greenway, "it's the first time we've re-signed on a longer term deal with anybody since the days when we didn't know that we could be digging ourselves a big hole with labels."

Justin Karl Michael Broadrick is a British singer, songwriter and drummer. He is best known as a founding member of the band Godflesh, one of the first bands to combine elements of extreme metal and industrial music, he was in the English grindcore band Napalm Death when he was a teenager in the mid-1980s, writing and recording guitar for Side One of Napalm Death's debut album, Scum. Broadrick has maintained a parallel career as a producer, producing records and remixes for groups such as Pantera, Isis and Hydra Head labelmates Pelican. Since 2012, he has been releasing hard techno music under the solo moniker JK Flesh. Broadrick has set up record labels such as HeadDirt, Avalanche Recordings, Post Mortem Productions, Lo Fibre and Heartache. Broadrick was born on 15 August 1969, in the council estates of inner Birmingham, to a British father, a soldier in World War II and a native German mother, her family moved to England in 1953. For the first four years of his life, Broadrick was raised by his mother Gabrielle Fern and stepfather Rob Fern in a hippie commune in Shard End.
In the late'70s, Broadrick's mother and stepfather were members of Anti-Social, a band infamous for live shows involving blood and fecal matter, as well as for soliciting people to commit suicide via guillotine live on stage. Anti-Social were dubbed "the world's most violent rock group" and released one single, Traffic Lights/Teacher Teacher, now one of the rarest UK punk record releases. During a period of heroin addiction, Justin's biological father was absent from the family home. By the age of ten, Broadrick was surrounded by the punk-rock. "There was Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, but it was always the stuff that wasn't so standard that grabbed me. I was always playing things like Lou Reed's Metal Machine Music when I was about eight! Stuff like Can, the weirdest parts of Pink Floyd, Hendrix", says Broadrick. "The first thing I heard out of the house, when I was about 11 years old, was Crass", says Broadrick. Shortly after seeing them as his first concert, he recorded his first demo tape at the age of 11.
"By the age of 12 I fell into early industrial music, stuff like Throbbing Gristle, Whitehouse". Broadrick began to play with his stepfather's guitar, into Roxy Music and Brian Eno. In 1982, he started publishing tapes with his friend Andy Swan; the first name they went under was Atrocity Exhibition, named after a Joy Division track. Their first recording was titled Live in the Studio and was the first catalogued release on their cassette label Post Mortem Rekordings. Shortly after, the project was named Smear Campaign, after a Nocturnal Emissions track; this was the name they went under at their first live performance on 7 July 1984 in The Mermaid in Birmingham. Promptly after the show they settled on the name Final. Final was inspired lyrically and musically by acts such as Throbbing Gristle and Maurizio Bianchi. "We were pretty into the whole industrial tape culture and fanzines of the early'80s", Broadrick says. The project developed to embrace the power electronics subgenre of industrial music in 1983, releasing material by them and other industrial projects on Post Mortem Rekordings such as Family Patrol Group, Mental Health Act, The Grey Wolves, Con-Dom, Death Magazine 52, Fern and Un-Kommuniti.
Final went under numerous lineup changes during its lifetime, including musicians like Philip Timms, Daniel Johnson, Paul Neville, Nicholas Bullen, Graham Robertson and Guy Pearce. "I had about 50 Final releases over about a year and a half", he says. Other project names Broadrick recorded under included Last Exit and Dead Pulp. In 1984 Broadrick joined the group Fall of Because as additional vocalist; the group recorded the Extirpate demo cassette in 1986, which contained a number of songs which were re-worked as songs for Godflesh. The group disbanded in 1988; the Life Is Easy compilation album of demo and live recordings was released in 1999. Broadrick met Nicholas Bullen in 1985 at the flea market. Justin gave Final tapes to Bullen and they recorded some material together. "Then I played him some of the stuff I did with guitar, which he played to another guy in Napalm Death. They were impressed with what I was doing with guitar, so I joined Napalm Death", Broadrick says. Soon Mick Harris joined the lineup and they shifted from metal to grindcore.
"Nick and I left Napalm Death. I'd had enough of Napalm Death very quickly", he says. Lee Dorrian and Jim Whitely joined to replace Broadrick. Justin gave the first side to Earache Records founder Digby Pearson, who contacted the new Napalm Death that had recorded the second side; the industrial metal band Head of David had played live with Napalm Death before. Their drummer left and Broadrick was invited to take his place. "I was in Head of David six weeks, we did a John Peel session for Radio One. That was the first highlight of my life", Justin says, he had been writing more brutal songs for the band, but due to artistic differences, he was kicked out in 1988. "When I first got exposed in'89 to the early acid house movement, I was an instant convert. The first time I heard early Aphex Twin, when Digeridoo first came out, I knew that this was where I wanted to go", Justin says, he formed Godflesh with his
