Napalm Death vocalist Mark ‘Barney’ Greenway has attempted to teach MP and former Labour leader Ed Miliband to sing in a death metal style live on radio.
The UK politician has been sitting in for Jeremy Vine this week on BBC Radio 2 – and had invited Greenway on to the show to chat about the Glastonbury festival, where Napalm Death will play a set on a stage dedicated to punk and metal tonight (June 22).
And during the live broadcast, Greenway attempted to teach Miliband how to use this throat to make a death metal growl.
Miliband says: “I’m going to now take my career into my hands if it’s not already gone down the pan and you’re going to try and help me to sort of do a bit of this extreme metal.”
The Napalm Death man then gives Miliband a few examples of his distinctive vocal style which the MP tries to replicate – with mixed results.
View the video of the pair’s encounter below.
Following their set at Glastonbury, Napalm Death will embark on further live dates across Europe.
