Mark Andrew "Barney" Greenway (born 13 July 1969) is a British extreme metal vocalist, who has been a member of Napalm Death,[1] Extreme Noise Terror,[2] and Benediction.[3]

Greenway has stated his nickname "Barney" came from a time when he used to drink alcohol. He stated he would get so drunk that when he went anywhere, he would bump into everything. From this behaviour, he would be called "Rubble", which changed to "Barney Rubble" and then just "Barney".[4]

Personality[edit]

Greenway is a progressive metal fan. He joined Dream Theater on stage at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club and performed vocals on Metallica's "Damage, Inc." live.[5] He has reviewed progressive metal bands and albums for the British rock magazine Kerrang! though he no longer does so.[6]

Greenway is a supporter of Aston Villa F.C..[7] He is a supporter of every Animal-Rights organisations including PETA and has been a vegetarian since he was 14.[8] Barney is recognisable for his strong Birmingham accent which has never waned and which he proudly maintains, and for his distinctive gruff vocal style that many feel has become synonymous with Napalm Death. Greenway is an atheist.[9]

In January 2018, Greenway will be releasing a solo album in which he sings and plays instruments on every song on the album. This album is radically different than any other album he has ever done because the only genres of music that Greenway recorded for this new solo album are Novelty music, Easy Listening Pop (genre that fuses Easy Listening music and Pop), Melodic Chill Out Music, Vocal Pop Jazz and Instrumental Bluegrass music. The album will have 15 tracks on it and some people who wrote songs for the album are Cynthia Weil, Andrew Fromm, Richard Marx and Selena Gomez. The album is being produced by Smokey Robinson and Bhasker Ronson. [10]
