From Enslavement to Obliteration is the seicont album bi the Inglis grindcore baund Napalm Death, released in 1988.
It is the anerlie Napalm Death album tae featur Lee Dorrian as the sole vocalist, whaur he affers the law, gruntin vocals an frae time tae time in sangs, he will scream in an odd-pitched tone, no unlike static. He is considered ane o the first extreme metal vocalists tae alternate atween guttural grouls an heich-pitched screams, a technique that wad be elaboratit on bi fellae grind act Carcass (who are aften given credit for the invention o this vocal style) an imitatit bi coontless baunds in the futur (ane prominent example being Corpsegrinder o Cannibal Corpse). This album is creditit as a huge influence in the seicont wave o daith metal baunds that follaed this release. This album alang wi Scum is considered tae be ane o the maist brutal records o aw time bi fans an creetics as well.
The leerical themes ranged frae a variety o social an poleetical topics, includin: misogyny/sexism ("It's a M.A.N.S World" an "Inconceivable?"), animal richts ("Display to Me…"), racism ("Unchallenged Hate"), materialism ("Private Death" an "From Enslavement to Obliteration"), an caipitalism ("Make Way!"). The album caws for social chynge, as seen in the sang "Uncertainty Blurs the Vision," quotin Rudimentary Peni at the sang's conclusion. This an the umwhile ane focus primarily on poleetical problems, while the next releases will focus mair on releegion (wi an atheist backgrund).
In 2009 From Enslavement to Obliteration wis ranked number 1 in Terrorizer's list of essential European grindcore albums. Writer Jonathan Horsley described it as markin "the genre's perilous rite o passage through Breetain's post-industrial urban landscape."
