Order of the Leech is the tenth album by the British grindcore band Napalm Death, released in 2002 through Spitfire. Although credited in the line-up, Jesse Pintado never performed.[5] The second guitar is actually Mitch Harris overdubbing, hence marking this album's lineup as today's lineup.[6] "The Great Capitulator" is exactly 2:49. At the end of the song, a long silence follows from 2:50 to 9:56. At 9:57 a soundbit comes fading in of a fan speaking of his attitude to metal music, mentioning bands like Krabathor or Immortal. His speech is then translated in Czech. It is the last album in a trilogy to feature this kind of soundbites, with the others being Leaders Not Followers EP and Enemy of the Music Business.
