How, if you’re Anaal Nathrakh, do you develop your sound even further into the realms of the ridiculously extreme? It’d be fair to say that in their pretty rarefied stratum, Nathrakh are already top dog – black-grind-industrial-death metal isn’t the largest of fields to be playing in, after all – but not content with this status, these Midlands misanthropes attempt to push harder and harder with each release.

With a (completely deserved) reputation for being one of the planet’s most scathing and nihilistic bands, grinding black metallers Anaal Nathrakh have subtly shifted moods for album number seven. While not standing still is always to be praised, the resulting album Vanitas has ended up sounding slightly at odds with itself. [Read more →]

Benediction at Bloodstock Open Air 2012 by Gary Wolstenholme Thrash Hits

If playing Bloodstock Open Air on crutches wasn’t an impressive enough feat all on its own, Dave Hunt went one better. He didn’t just play one set on crutches at Bloodstock Open Air 2012, but two – the first of which being fronting Benediction opening the main stage on Saturday morning. We’d have to wait till Sunday night before he returned with Anaal Nathrakh….

20 Years Of Black Metal Evolution – Part #1

February 27th, 2012

With Sunday just past marking the 20th anniversary of the release of Darkthrone’s A Blaze In The Northern Sky (and therefore being pretty much the closest thing to a birthday that black metal can claim to have), over the coming week we’re letting Tom Dare off the leash to run his mouth about one of metal’s most controversial off-shoots. But instead of rehashing the same-old same-old tales from the genre’s torrid history, we thought we’d get him to look at how the genre’s evolved since those first, frosty releases two decades ago. Take it away, Mr. Dare…

Album: Anaal Nathrakh – Passion

The time will inevitably come when Anaal Nathrakh can no longer make an album more despicable, more scathing, more putrid and generally less pleasant than the last. Apparently In The Constellation Of The Black Widow was not that album, as Passion is yet more ear-flaying than before. Although at first you could easily be forgiven for thinking this isn’t the case.
