NAPALM DEATH Debut Video Clip For “How The Years Condemn”
UK Grindcore pioneers NAPALM DEATH continue to promote their 15th and much praised studio album release “Apex Predator – Easy Meat” and today they debut the album’s second video clip, for the track “How The Years Condemn”.
Check out the enthralling effort, composed by live footage shot in North America by
Doug Brown and enhanced by animation courtesy of Costin Chioreanu / Twilight Media, here:
NAPALM DEATH have checked in to comment on the clip as follows:
“Subject-wise I think this is one of the more open-ended of the tracks that we have in the sense that everybody has their own ideas toward living a vibrant and fulfilling life. To me, Costin expertly captured some elements that can be detrimental to that and keep us in a bubble: becoming progressively stupefied by television / mass media… leaving unnecessary burdens upon another person sharing life with us… only seeing an altered perspective through the bottom of a bottle or suchlike. Don’t misunderstand, this is not an anti-alcohol / intoxicant song – as some might conclude – but more to understand that any form of stimulant that controls us rather us controlling it (from TV to drugs and many things in between) really can impair and reduce the quality of life that is possible for our finite time on earth.” – Mark ‘Barney’ Greenway
“How The Years Condemn” I guess is a term that’s used for many reasons – for me I first heard it from a guy who later became a friend of mine in a hospital bed next to me 3 years ago, as we passed the time talking about why we had both ended up there! It was at that point and then the following 6 days afterwards that I said to myself that enough was finally enough! I thought about how lucky I was to be doing what I had always dreamed of doing, and in doing so, the awesome people, friends and loved ones that I had met and who now accompany me on this strange journey called life. To my loved ones I realized I had been selfish and it was time for a change, a realization that we are not invincible nor are we indestructible.” – Shane Embury
