Today, Decibel Magazine offers up the inimitable ear-laceration that is “Todos Somos Humanos” from Birmingham blackened grindcore miscreants, Anaal Nathrakh.

Vanitas has been reaping critical accolades domestically and abroad. In an early review of the record, Teeth Of The Divine commends Vanitas, calling it, “…easily the band’s best and most violent effort since Eschaton, both production and song-wise. There are quite literally times during the album where I shuddered with a tangible ‘whoa,’ as it melds that album’s seething, regal neo-grind with the debut’s harsh, caustic atmosphere, resulting in paint-peeling, ear shredding elegance and savagery that few, if any, bands can match.” The Digital Fix notes, “Turning up the grindcore elements of their sound, they blast through a set of tunes so utterly destructive that, with a heady mix of machine-gun blastbeats, sickening riffs and a mix perfectly balanced to bring out the murderous intent below, proves to be another highlight in a particularly vintage twelve months for metal,” while The Examiner proclaims, “If hell had a sound track, Vanitas would be the extended version.” Adds Stereokiller in a perfect 5/5 review: Anaal Nathrakh have it all going on throughout Vanitas. Whether you’re into industrial, death, melodic or black metal they seem to cover every aspect of the spectrum.”

Earlier this month, BrooklynVegan unveiled “Forging Towards the Sunset,” which is still available for your listening fix at THIS LOCATION. Coinciding with the release of Vanitas, Anaal Nathrakh will tour Canada for the first time beginning in Montreal on November 7. Full tour dates are available on the band and Candlelight’s official Facebook pages.

The exclusive track premiere comes from the band’s forthcoming Vanitas full-length, set for North American release through Candlelight Records on November 6.

Anaal Nathrakh’s seventh album, “sounds like someone showing you what the end of the world is like via the medium of a thousand hammers soaked in acid,” according to vocalist Dave Hunt, adding ”it’s more articulate and focused than any album before it in way of composition and recording technique. We worked hard and we’re convinced it has paid off.”

The maniacal due of Mick Kenney and David Hunt are currently working on the follow-up to Passion, released via Candlelight earlier this year. Commented Hunt 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.”

Further updates on Anaal Nathrakh to come…stay tuned.

 

ANAAL NATHRAKH: New Track Stream Available Via Decibel Magazine

Metal’s most imaginative and punishing band returns with their sixth studio album, Passion. Scheduled for a  May 17, 2011 release date via Candlelight Records, the duo known as Anaal Nathrakh buck all trends. Their hallmark mix of metal, industrial, grind, and noise is virtually unmatched.

With Passion, Anaal Nathrakh take their menacing sounds into newer territory that will without doubt find the band an even larger audience while continuing to garner media’s most critical acclaim. Notes popular Canadian site Hellbound, “the UK duo has produced a hurricane of sound, with a whole spectrum of throat-wrenching vocal eviscerations, thundering blasts, grinding riffs, and lightning-speed leads.” MetalSucks proclaims, “Anaal Nathrakh are one of the best bands out there when it comes to evoking horror and terror,” while Metal Underground added, “hatred has never sounded as exciting.”

In conjunction with its release, Decibel Magazine is currently streaming “Paragon Pariah,” the seventh track from Passion. To check it out, point your browser HERE.

Since being founded in 1999, Anaal Nathrakh have gained a reputation for embodying the audio essence of pure evil. Collaborations with such legendary figures as Attila Csihar (Mayhem), Shane Embury and Danny Herrera (Napalm Death), Nicolas Barker (Testament, Dimmu Borgir), Joe Horvath (Circle Of Dead Children), Sethlans Teitan (Watain) and others, have placed the band high on media as well metal fans’ “must seek out” list. This, alongside headlining a stage at the renowned cult Inferno Festival in Norway (as their debut international live appearance), countless placements among “Best Album Of The Year” polls and “Album Of The Month” awards in the press, Anaal Nathrakh’s status as one of the leading lights in extreme metal is undeniable. And growing…

For 2011, Anaal Nathrakh presents the digested and re-vomited results of an 18-month journey through slings, arrows and outrageous misfortune. Intended in the most scourging sense of the word, Passion is an encoded vision of agony; desolation taken as the inspiration for incalculable rage. Passion includes guest contributions from Rainer Landfermann (Pavor, Bethlehem) and Alan Dubin (Khanate, Gnaw). Glorying in their Pyrrhic epiphanies, the band have developed a deeper understanding of horror and Passion is the focused, distilled and above all bleakly triumphant result.
