NAPALM DEATH to Release 25 Year Special Edition of SCUM
Napalm Death’s classic album, SCUM, is due to be re-released on limited edition redux CD and coloured vinyl LP on March 5th.
To celebrate 25 years since the release of the most influential grindcore album ever made, SCUM has been remastered especially for this release from the original tapes with Full Dynamic Range (FDR), allowing the music’s nuances to shine through and giving the whole album a more ferocious and dynamic sound than ever before, and enabling the listener to immerse in the full audio chaos like never before.
Original guitarist and founding member Mick Harris states: “It sounds wicked – that record still holds up today and I’m proud I was part of it.”

More FDR releases are planned, including the band’s follow-up release, From Enslavement to Obliteration. For more information about Full Dynamic Range, head to http://turnmeup.org

The collector’s LP version is available in the following quantities and colours:
100 – Lime Green

300 – Magenta
