Napalm Death- "Analysis Paralysis"

Videosadmin3 Comments

For the past several days, I've been listening to the new Napalm Death album, Utilitarian. I was sorta lukewarm on it at first, but now I'm coming around; however, I feel like this new band-directed video is throwing me back into a pit of emotional ambiguity.

For a band that's known for its fundamental contributions to extreme music, most of the expressions throughout this video look pretty, well, unenthusiastic. Maybe the video session didn't hold a lot of chemistry for Napalm, I dunno.

I don't know what's up with these weird chroma key shots combined with stock footage of avalanches and skies either. It just seems like a video that would have been produced on an extremely low budget in the 90s.

The song is decent, though.
