DEATH BY NAPALM bass player Shane Embury has been a major figure in grindcore for over four decades, and its history is closely tied to the history of this scene. Provisionally expected in 2022 via Rocket 88, a new book called ” Life ? … & Death with napalm ” will take the reader to a front seat, through the sights, sounds, places and people who have been at the heart of music and life. Told in its own inimitable style, this is not just the life story of Shane, but also a story of DEATH BY NAPALM and the development of death metal and grindcore from their beginnings to the present day.

Embury has been one of the most prolific and inventive figures on the underground rock and metal scene over the past 30 years, with countless intriguing (and generally deafening) groups and projects to his name.
In a 2012 interview with Brazil The Roadie crew, Shane said of his early interest in music: “I come from a very small town called Broseley which is in the county of Shropshire – 40 miles from Birmingham. I was one of four friends in metal and we were trading with Bill Steer [CARCASS] and people like that and we would get into faster music like POSSESSES and DEATH, so we formed WARHAMMER, which was, I guess, the first death metal band in the UK before ASSAULT. We had a demo called “Slaughterhouse of death” and I started playing drums in this band. I had always wanted to play in a band since I was six or seven, so it was one more step towards my dream. AZAGTHOT was a band in which I played with the guitarist of WAR HAMMER, a guy called Pierre Gilles, who went on to perform in many bands, one of them being SCALPLOCK. WARHAMMER‘sand AZAGTHOTThe music was very intense death metal. ”
