History

Defecation was initially set up as a side-project for Righteous Pigs and Napalm Death members Mitch Harris and Mick Harris. The band delivered one noisecore album in 1992 through Nuclear Blast before being shelved.
Mitch Harris, now acting solo, announced a new album in 2002 using compositions meant for a decade earlier. A second Defecation album was, however, shelved because of contractual obligations to Earache. Intention Surpassed was released in March of 2003 with Mitch Harris handling all instruments. In making the album Harris had been given use of the instruments of his Napalm Death band colleagues, namely Shane Embury's bass and Danny Herrera's drums. A drum machine was also used.

Reviews

DEFECATION - INTENTION SURPASSED - NUCLEAR BLAST
Defecation was the side-project of Mick Harris and Mitch Harris erstwhile underground pen pals and grind fanatics who would later unite in Napalm Death. The duo released a punishing album of full-on grindcore ten years ago, before hitting a wall in their mutual relationship with one-another and with Earache Records (which Napalm Death was signed to at the time) and abandoned the project.... Now with a decade behind him and a renewed vigour within his main band Napalm Death, Mitch Harris has turned Defecation into a solo act and returned with another extreme album of grindcore proportions. Mitch does an admirable job handling all the instruments. Past the rather poor cover, Intention Surpassed is chock full of grindcore without pretension. The vocals are often processed with effects and the occasional drum machine can be heard, but Intention Surpassed is cruel, brutal and full of dashing riffs mincing the listener to the floor. It often resembles a rawer Napalm Death, but that is to be expected given Mitch's membership in that band. Fans of grinding madness will enjoy this at command. It is good to see how Mitch Harris chooses to do something fierce in his spare time instead of the usual industrial/gothic/poppy drivel that he and others quite frequently downgrade to on 'solo' albums. Perhaps that is why it is called Intention Surpassed after all. - Ali "The Metallian"
