Album no. 14 already, and and still first class grindcore / death metal! Beginning with a slow industrial track, the album then turns into a ripping punishing deathgrind album. Sometimes "smear campaign" is even more extreme and brutal than "the code is red
", on the other hand it surprises with guest vocals by Anneke van Giersbergen (THE GATHERING) and clean vocals by Barney. Aggressive, furious, modern and pounding death metal / grindcore, thatīs what "smear campaign" describes quite good. A great, violent and memorable Napalm Death release.
