NAPALM DEATH bassist Shane Embury has launched his own Extrinsic Recordings label. Set up with the purpose of providing an outlet for his creative endeavors outside of NAPALM DEATH, Extrinsic‘s first release will be BORN TO MURDER THE WORLD. The album is titled “The Infinite Mirror Of Millennial Narcissism”, and it will be released digitally on August 24. The first track, “Brutal Alchemist”, can be streamed below.
With the weight of two stalwarts of extreme metal behind it, BORN TO MURDER THE WORLD was always going to be heavy. With the blueprint for the band hashed out on drunken night’s out in their Birmingham hometown, Shane Embury (NAPALM DEATH, VENOMOUS CONCEPT, BRUJERIA, LOCK UP) and Mick Kenney (ANAAL NATHRAKH, MISTRESS) swore to join forces.
Having known each other for the best part of 20 years, and being avid fans of each other’s creative output, distance was no barrier for the pair once Kenney relocated to California. As the album began to take shape, they recruited Duncan “Drunk” Wilkins (FUKPIG, MISTRESS) to give a voice to tracks such as “The Virus Is Within Us All” and “Brutality Alchemist”.
Described as a “brutal amalgamation of NAPALM DEATH and ANAAL NATHRAKH,” BORN TO MURDER THE WORLD is very much the sum of its parts, and then some. With songwriting jointly handled by Embury and Kenney, recording, mixing and mastering was also taken care of by the latter at his own studio, The Barracks.
