Take The Strain Diatribes Placate, Sedate, Eradicate Corrosive Elements. Buried, the seed deep in all our heads. Prepared ourselves for the fall. The greed killing! Instinct to mistruct, Instinct - the lust. Their butchery of feelings, geared for the greed killing. The lust denied is need [x5] Existence is a steady flow, the moulded image grows. No core, no faith in what you are, the pressure builds right from the start.
The lust denied the need [x5] Could it be just sour grapes? Or have we failed to fit their shape? It's always give, and never take. How much can we give? Napalm Bizkit! It is the best and most daring experiment on the album. The crustcore section of titletrack is great and the song as a whole the most dynamic of the album and one of the most aggressive ones here.
Together with "Ripe for the Breaking" which is one of the few songs with a blast speed. Apart from the lack of originality the album also often fails in terms of aggressiveness and energy. For a band like Napalm Death this cannot do. A lot of songs sound rather tame. It's not as bad as a lot of people would make you think, it's just boring. What it really reminds me of is a heavier, more brutal version of Sepultura's 'Chaos A. It's really not very bad at all unless you hate 'Chaos A.
But if this is Napalm Death's worst, then they're better than just about any band out there as far as consistency goes. There's one really, really bright spot on this album: the opening track, 'Greed Killing'. It's a fucking great song. It sounds nothing like anything else on this album or in the rest of Napalm Death's catalog for that matter, with its incredibly bright and evocative yet undeniably simple riffing and flawlessly bouncing and rolling drum and vocal rhythms.
As far as what Napalm Death could do with the groove-based ingredients of this style, this song is probably the best that they could possibly come up with, and on its own, it's an essential part of their musical history. The five bucks I spent on this album were worth it for 'Greed Killing' alone. The rest of the music doesn't fair quite so well.
It's the same thing that people would feel, again, with the change from Sepultura's 'Arise' to 'Chaos A. High-speed, aggressive riffing transforming into midpaced, groovy, textured pieces has generally never been a particularly welcome move in the metal scene, and this is another instance of where it objectively pretty much fails.
None of the grooves are very compelling, and though there's a pretty great drum performance throughout by Danny Herrera, he's not backed up with riffs of any magnitude or import. Barney Greenway's overly straightforward vocal performance apart from a few attempts at spoken word drama just round out a generally uninspired and unnecessary album.
Eh, it's not an album I regret buying. It's of course the worst full-length in Napalm Death's catalog, and it's not an album that I can imagine anyone would say is a shining moment in their history or metal in general, but it's not the musical travesty that many people make it out to be. It's just that it's a merely average album from Napalm Death, which makes it by comparison seem like a musical Holocaust. Not bad, but not very good either.
First of all, before I begin let me say that I do also own Harmony Corruption. I do like that one better on most days, at least , and I perfectly understand that Diatribes is not like older Napalm Death. In fact, it's a completely different kind of music.
