ANAAL NATHRAKH Working On New Album

U.K. extreme metallers ANAAL NATHRAKH consisting of Mick Kenney and David Hunt are currently working on the follow-up to "Passion", released earlier this year via Candlelight Records. Hunt commented from the studio, "The songs we've recorded so far have come out very well. They are stylistically quite heterogeneous yet somehow sounding focused at the same time. And there's one section that's completely from left field, which we've included as a personal tribute. It's all still in a raw, hardly mixed and not-yet-mastered state, but it's all sounding quite powerful.

"There was an earthquake here a couple of days ago, which we're taking as a portent. But there's a fair way to go yet we're about half way through the main body of it, and we're looking forward to getting back to tearing things open over a grindstone."

Decibel magazine is currently offering up a free, limited-edition flexi disc from ANAAL NATHRAKH with the online purchase of the November 2011 issue. Go here for ordering info.

ANAAL NATHRAKH was created for one purpose to be the soundtrack for armageddon, the audial essence of evil, hatred and violence, the true spirit of necro taken to its musical extremes. Since being founded in 1999, the band has gained a reputation for embodying precisely these things, with a history including not only the release of four albums and an EP to rapturous acclaim, but collaborations with such legendary figures as Attila Csihar (MAYHEM), Shane Embury and Danny Herrera (NAPALM DEATH), Nick Barker (TESTAMENT, DIMMU BORGIR), Joe Horvath (CIRCLE OF DEAD CHILDREN), Sethlans Teitan (WATAIN) and so on. This, alongside appearing on BBC Radio 1 at the personal behest of sadly missed icon John Peel, headlining a stage at the renowned cult Inferno Festival in Norway as their debut international live appearance, countless placings in "Best Album Of The Year" polls and "Album Of The Month" awards in the press and cover appearances on leading magazines such as Terrorizer ANAAL NATHRAKH's status as one of the leading lights in extreme metal is undeniable.

Hallmarked by breathtaking musical ferocity, inventiveness and breadth, married with a mercurial, intensely misanthropic and sharp intelligence, ANAAL NATHRAKH's sound is imbued with a palpable sense of menace that is virtually unmatched in metal.
