The Club Quattro, in the heart of Shibuya, can boast about hosting this Thursday evening among the most influential bands of the international grindcore scene, with the British from Napalm Death, the Swedish from Nasum, and the American from Pig Destroyer.

I am also honored to meet Barney, vocalist from Napalm Death, a few hours before their performance for a long and interesting video interview. I was supposed to meet Shane, their bassist, but due to a non serious health problem, he got stuck in the UK and couldn't join the Asian tour. Barney willingly answers to all my questions ... and we end up discussing for an hour about politics and Japan.





Pig Destroyer

The Americans are the first to climb on the stage, starting the show with several samplings, before suddenly releasing their rage and the decibels on the small venue. The lights are very simple, mainly bathed in red lights, unfortunately to the detriment of the band. Musically, despite the voice of J.R. Hayes that isn’t really audible, it’s not as mashed as one might fear, and the rhythms are well stressed and invite us to headbang. The particularity of Pig Destroyer is their frequent use of samplings, particularly synthetic voices, with the presence of Blake Harrison the DJ, despite the absence of any bassist (they never had one !). Blake seems to be quite idle, but his availability adds much more energy and movement on the stage, compensating for the others that remain relatively static. Hayes introduces Adam Jarvis, their new drummer since 2011, and ex-Misery Index.
After 40 minutes, the band quickly leaves the stage, leaving the crowd not fully satisfied, as we might have hoped more energy and interaction with the crowd.





Nasum

The Swedish play a moving show tonight, one of the last lives of their long career that brutally came to an end in 2004 following the death of their leader, Mieszko Talarczyk, due to the tsunami in Thailand. The band exceptionally reformed for a short worldwide tour at the occasion of their 20th anniversary. Aside from this tribute to their comrade, Nasum achieves a wonderful set, musically speaking, offering to the Japanese crowd a very energetic and powerful live, singing from the heart for their last tour in Japan.
Benefitting from an excellent charisma mixed with a certain humility, they irradiate a soft aura.
Contrasting with Pig Destroyer, their light show is excellent and elaborate.

Nasum brought us tonight a touching tribute to brilliantly close their musical career, which nonetheless didn’t lack power and fury.





Napalm Death

Now is the turn to Napalm Death, the mammoths, the ancestors of grindcore to appear on stage. The venue gets much more crowded to welcome our British foursome. Shane, the bassist, missed the party and couldn’t join the Japanese tour due to non severe health problems that kept him in a hospital in the UK, but Barney reinsures us, specifying that the guy is still fine. After proposing the role to Jesper (from Nasum), it’s A.K., their sound technician who endorsed the bass. Having only a few days to memorize the songs, he wasn’t bad, despite being teased by Barney as he constantly checked his notes between the songs.




Similarly to Nasum celebrating their 20th anniversary, Napalm Death can boast about their longevity exceeding 30 years. Thanks to a their very long experience of the stage, the British offer us an elaborate mix of grindcore, death, dissenting punk, with the whole recipe being devoted to an uncompromising and brutal sound, with an unhidden madness, retarded side as seen on “You Suffer” their 1.3s (shortest song ever) orgasmic deflagration.
The lights remain simple, the stage is bare, but Napalm Death don’t burden themselves with unnecessary appearance, and merely invite us to join their musical madness for one or two hours, to break a few vertebras and lose oneself in an uncontrolled pure rage.
Napalm proves once again that they’re the symbol of the catharsis and of the musical exutory delirium.
