The Brummy boys were all set to play a one-off show in support of ceramic artist Keith Harrison at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum.
But bosses at the London venue have pulled the plug after experts suggested Napalm Death’s sonic assault could cause long-term structural damage.
An official spokesperson from the V&A said: “It is with regret that we have taken the decision to cancel the one-off Napalm Death performance in collaboration with our ceramic artist in residence Keith Harrison on Friday 22 March.
“This was due to take place in the Europe Galleries which are currently being refurbished and a further safety inspection has revealed concerns that the high level of decibels generated by the performance would damage the historic fabric of the building.
“The V&A is committed to an exciting programme of exhibitions and events but the safety of our visitors and building remains our priority at all times.”
