I noticed that there weren't really any pieces out there that are just ridiculous and loud throughout without being way too long and having a soft middle section that doesn't really fit with the rest of the piece. So, Napalm Basket aims to be just that, while also being tasteful, challenging, and creative. Napalm Basket is explosive in volume and energy and is an enormous amount of fun to play.
