NAPALM DEATH: 'Noise For Music's Sake' Track Listing Unveiled

Earache Records, in collaboration with NAPALM DEATH, have finalized the track listing for "Noise For Music's Sake", the forthcoming 2-CD NAPALM DEATH package, due to hit stores in June in the UK/Europe (July in the U.S.). Disc One features all of NAPALM DEATH's greatest "hits", from early classics "Scum" and "Suffer The Children", to later crushers "Diatribes" and "Breed To Breathe". Disc Two features a massive collection of bonus tracks, demos, live recordings, and other rare and unreleased material from throughout the band's career. Highlights include a live cover of GODFLESH's "Avalanche Master Song", two unreleased mixes of tracks from "Fear, Emptiness...Despair", rare tracks from the "Pathological" and "North Atlantic Noise Attack" compilations, and three live tracks dating back to the mid-80's, handpicked by NAPALM DEATH bassist Shane Embury from his own personal collection — one having been recorded on a hand-held recorder by Embury himself in '86 before he was in the band!
