I first bought this tape in 1988, when the most extreme thing myself or any of my friends were listening to was Dark Angel, Slayer or Ludichrist. Napalm Death opened a Pandora's box to to a whole new realm of speed with "Enslavement", a step up from the noise-heavy but still classic "Scum". They take a more metal direction with Bill Steer just starting to find his sound before moving on to Carcass after this album. Mick Harris drums like a controlled spaz in this one, accelerating the blender to dizzying speeds and Lee Dorrain, spewing out a caustic growl far removed from his doom/stoner efforts in Cathedral, lets you feel his pain with every strained yell and undecipherable lyric. Truly a work of art and a great intro to the fine art of grindcore, along with "Scum" and "Reek of Putrefaction" by Carcass. Experience the classic ND lineup at it's most hectic. . . .

Oh man. I'll never forget when I was looking for this new extreme band they were talking about in the radio. I went to the record shop and asked the guy if he'd know something about it because I forgot the name. He gave me the right record ! I listened to one or two songs and was floored. I never heard something like this before.
At home, my buddy and I listened to this thing in full effect and we laughed our asses off ! We were almost rolling on the floor. We laughed because it was so crazy, brutal and extreme. But then it got serious; we were simply totally astonished.
The production blew me away. To this day, I've never heard such ferocious drumming. The bass is ultra-brutal and deep. The lovely Bill Steer (who moved on to the also great Carcass later on and is now singing and playing in Firebird, great band by the way) builds a wall of sound with his guitar. And of course the wonderful Lee Dorrian, now leader of Cathedral, who seemed to be tortured during recording. He growls, cries, shouts like all the pain and injustice in this world goes thru him. The lyrics are intelligent and political.
Or like a German rock critic once wrote: This represents the last lethal puking into the big cosmic toilet we all have to pass by one day (hope you understand my weak English translation).
This record is a special classic.
Every home needs one.

I got this when it came out back in '88 and it totally changed my musical perspective. I'd already heard Scum and the Peel Sessions 12", but this album took legendary Brummie noise merchants Napalm Death to a whole new level of deranged, superfast grindcore mayhem!!! This is probably as extreme as Napalm got, and, if you approach with an open mind, much noisy fun can be had. The lyrics are also excellent, something which too often gets overlooked when talking about this band. If you're a curious metal/punk fan looking for your first dose of Napalm, Scum or the new album, Enemy Of The Music Business, are probably better places to start, but if you're a committed noise/grindcore fan, you must own this album - so stop messing about and add it to your cart! The ultimate grindcore record. CHUFFED!!!

There is a lot of criticism by the "new school" Napalm Death fans out there. Sure, Napalm Death was a great 90's death metal band, but everything from "Harmony Corruption" through their nowadays records are simply death metal. But "Scum" and "FETO" are grindcore. Grindcore does not equal death metal...and everyone should know why. Fans of the newer Napalm Death should not take their first two albums as death metal. As for Napalm Death themselves, they revolutionalized grindcore, tagged it and released two of the best grind albums in 1987 and '89. "FETO" is not "Scum", but it is better than (most) of the thousand clones that came out after grindcore became a important genre of music. In my opinion, the 1989 lineup was the best lineup ever in the band's history. Led by Bill Steer on guitars (also of Carcass fame), Lee Dorrian (also of Cathedral fame), Shane Embury on bass and Mick Harris, who went on to many industrial and doom metal projects, these legendary musicians were able to grind out this 34:18, 27-song album.

Production for this album is *better* than "Scum", and everything (except the bass) is audible, but it isn't perfect. But, for a grindcore album, it is good. Lyrics...the lyrics are pure genius. Inspired by old-school punk and the "f*** it all" attitude, you get some very angry lyrics. Songs like "It's A M.A.N.S.'s World" and "Evolved As One" offer some of the best political lyrics out there. Lee Dorrian combines the low, inaudible grunts and the high pitched shriek for vocals, which may scare away little kids, but if you try to sing behind all that carnage, it would sound stupid. Mick Harris fills drum duties perfectly, grinding out some fast and crazy stuff. The bass is inaudible, which is no surprise. And Bill Steer...

This album is pretty intense. I listened to it once in the car with a friend who wasn't into heavy music, and his head exploded. All the songs after the first are extremely fast, short, and furious as hell. This is what grindcore is all about, and this is a classic in this genre. I'd strongly recommend this if you're into metal/hardcore. But if you're new to this kind of music I'd steer clear of this one for a while. You probably wouldn't be able to appreciate it yet and your head might explode. Have fun with this one kiddies.
