Shane Embury (born 27 November 1967 in Broseley, Shropshire) is a British musician. Shane plays bass guitar in Napalm Death and is the closest person to be called an 'original member' of the band. He is the only member left who has been on the band since the Scum tour. He replaced Jim Whitley on bass. Before joining, he played bass in a death metal band called Azagthoth with Pete Giles, who would later play with him on Unseen Terror in which he played the drums. His first band was called Warhammer (again with Pete Giles) and they released a demo called Abbatoir of Death.
He has a long list of side projects. Besides playing with Napalm Death, Shane had the grindcore band Unseen Terror with members of Heresy, a hardcore/metal band called 'Blood from the Soul' with Lou Koller from New York's Sick of it All, an industrial band with Mitch Harris and some Obituary members called Meathook Seed, an unconventional band called Malformed Earthborn with Brutal Truth's bass player Dan Lilker, Lock Up and Brujeria, which is a Mexican death metal project with members of Fear Factory and Faith No More among others. Embury is also playing with his Napalm Death bandmate Danny Herrera, Kevin Sharp (Brutal Truth) and Danny Lilker (Nuclear Assault/Brutal Truth) in the band Venomous Concept. He has recently toured with UK black metal/grindcore band Anaal Nathrakh.
He has recently resurrected a musical project called Absolute Power which he started in 2000, it features as of yet unnamed "celebrity" guests.
He lives with his wife in Birmingham, England, and loves horror and science fiction books, movies and comics.
As for 2009, Embury's both arms are tattooed including the ND logo and the "Life?" image on his left arm
