Century Media Records has set October 5, 2004 as the North American release date for Napalm Death’s "Leaders Not Followers Part 2." 17 years after the release of their now legendary debut record, "Scum," British extreme metal legends Napalm Death deliver their second covers collection, which pays homage to hardcore, death, and thrash metal’s progenitors. "Leaders Not Followers Part 2" continues where 1999’s 5-track "Leaders Not Followers" EP left off, serving up 19 full-bodied tracks. Opening with Cryptic Slaughter’s “Lowlife,” the stakes rise and the band tears through Devastation’s “Devastation,” and whips into Hellhammer’s “Messiah,” a version that possibly outshines the original. In a ferocious fit the band plows through classic songs from Wehrmacht, Discharge, Master, Kreator, Die Kruezen, Sepultura and Hirax. As a bonus to long-time fans, and at the urging of long-time friend Shane Embury, the band’s first bass player, Jim Whiteley, performs here on Discharge’s “War’s No Fairytale” and Anti Cimex’s “Game Of The Arseholes.”
