Napalm Death gig at museum is cancelled

Historic Napalm Death gig cancelled over venue concerns.


A Napalm Death gig scheduled to take place at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London has unfortunately been called off.

The grindcore pioneers were originally set to play the show at the 161 year-old museum this Friday. It was organised in collaboration with ceramic artist in residence Keith Harrison. However the V&A has said that the room which was set to host the gig is "currently being refurbished and a further safety inspection has revealed concerns that the high level of decibels generated by the concert would damage the historic fabric of the building."

They were basically concerned that Napalm Death would obliterate the building. That's pretty Metal. 

The show was intended to take place using an experimental sculptural sound system designed by Harrison, which would potentially crumble apart throughout the set. 

The band's vocalist Barney Greenway had commented on the show: "Sound as a weapon - or a weapon of change - is a very interesting concept and I think that the whole process of our sound gradually degrading clay sculptures is captivating."

Even if you hate music, that sounds like an awesome show. Unfortunately we may never see it, which is sad.

We know you're probably upset. So to cheer you up, here are 10 Napalm Death videos of varying quality and length in no particular order:

Your soul is now pure, be on your way.
