Barney Greenway, vocalist for UK grindcore legends Napalm Death, will be forced to miss upcoming shows in Italy (Nov 17) and Switzerland (Nov 19) due to "unforeseen personal obligations." Chris Reese of Corrupt Moral Altar will take over the mic in Greenway's absence. Says bassist Shane Embury, "We have been rehearsing a set in soundcheck today for tomorrow's show and it is sounding brutal and intense and we hope you guys in will show him and us your support. Thanks in advance for understanding and see everyone tomorrow."

The band is currently on tour in Europe with Carcass, Voivod and Obituary. Their most recent album, Apex Predator - Easy Meat , was released earlier this year.
