Napalm Death and Carcass, live in Sydney
Venue: Factory Theatre, Sydney
The mainstays of British metal head Down Under
It’s been eons since extreme music progenitors Napalm Death and Carcass undertook a fully-fledged tour together. So long actually, the latter’s guitarist (also briefly a member of the former) tells Hammer he can’t recall with certainty when it previously occurred. Thus, this is an event; a rabid, sold-out crowd inevitable.
Another rarity in these parts nowadays is a live appearance by taut Perth noise crew Extortion , executing their powerviolence-infused hardcore/punk with vein-popping, banter-free vigour. A guest spot from Napalm Death bellower Mark “Barney” Greenway affords a welcome teaser for the remainder of the evening.
