Anaal Nathrakh Interviews and Features
Below are our features and interviews with Anaal Nathrakh.
Third Update: new sales have been added below from Comatose Music and Deathwish Music.
Second Update: added new sales from Indie Merch, Sevared Records, Relapse Records, and The Omega Order.
Update: deals have now been added from Metal Blade, Give Praise, and Razorback Records.
Black Friday and Cyber Monday are a point of much contention among the metal community (with its overall disdain for consumerism, commercial whoring, and conformity) - so much so that every year Daniel Vrangsinn's (Carpathian Forest) label Misantrof even releases the "Holy Fucking ANTIChristmas" compilation in December.
