Anaal Nathrakh Cancels Canadian Tour Dates

ANAAL NATHRAKH have posted the following update:

“Owing to circumstances not related to the band themselves and entirely outside of the band’s control, ANAAL NATHRAKH have been forced to pull out of their imminent Canadian shows at the 11th hour.

To reiterate – this was not down to the band themselves, and if there was anything that could have been done, believe us we’d have done it. Confirmation of this twist of fate’s dagger only came through 5 hours before we were due to go to the airport.

There is no reason why this should affect any other planned dates – ONLY THOSE IN CANADA. And rest assured, plans will be put in place for alternative Canadian shows as soon as possible.

We offer our sincerest regrets to anyone who was intending to be at the shows, which at the time of writing will be going ahead with the support bands playing at a reduced door price. We are royally pissed off about missing the shows, but sometimes events simply conspire against you. Which will make it all the sweeter when the time comes to make the trip to Canada and both band and fans are able to raise a middle finger to fate and grind its corpse under their heels.”

Mistress Call It A Day

Sludge-grind UK outfit MISTRESS and rock quintet EXPLODER have both decided to call it a day. The overlapping personnel involved in the two bands has been making music together in various forms for a number of years. Multi-instrumentalist Mick Kenney's side project FROST is also to be no more. Each of these projects has been successful in their own right; MISTRESS having produced four unique albums, appeared on BBC's "Never Mind The Buzzcocks" and toured with then-labelmates MUNICIPAL WASTE; FROST's LPs being described as "the albums MAYHEM should have made" by Kerrang! magazine and EXPLODER opening Bloodstock 2007 alongside former AC/DC drummer Chris Slade.

The clear-out will leave Kenney and MISTRESS vocalist Dave more free to concentrate on ANAAL NATHRAKH — who will be performing at the first ever Feto Obliteration Fest (London, UK), as well as at the Maryland Deathfest (USA) in May, and at Hellfest (France) in June. Guitarist Misery will be continue to play bass in the live line up of ANAAL NATHRAKH, and will also be working on a new yet-to-be named project. Mick also has a brand new band in the pipeline and claims it contains all elements of everything he has done in the past and more. Guitarist Drunk is currently rumored to be working with post-punk "forbidden lovers of the first whore" BEE STUNG LIPS. MISTRESS bassist/EXPLODER singer Dirty Von Donovan is as yet biding his time and oiling his biceps. Dave is also scheduled to be recording a new album with death metal veterans BENEDICTION very soon, with Mick lined up to produce.

The bands leave behind them a rich legacy of abject misery, self abuse, bleak obsession with evil and fist-in-the-air, pelvic rock.

Feto Obliteration Fest will take place on May 2 at the London Underworld, featuring ANAAL NATHRAKH, RAMESSES, THEOKTONY and DEADWEIGHT.

Anaal Nathrakh Set To Release New Album

The forthcoming Anaal Nathrakh album, entitled "Hell Is Empty, And All The Devils Are Here," is due to be released through FETO Records on October 29th 2007. Their fourth studio album promises to be a rabid whirlwind of schizophrenic malice, wide-eyed terror, and venom that is as encyclopaedic in its genre defying convulsions as it is downright vile.

Having featured several notable guest appearances through their recording career, Anaal Nathrakh are this time aided and abetted in their chaos by Josama Bin Horvath of American ultra-grind band Circle Of Dead Children, and are reunited with slave to the grind Shane Embury of Napalm Death.

Nick Barker Is Still A Member Of Benediction

Long-running British metallers BENEDICTION have released the following statement to BLABBERMOUTH.NET:

"A lot of questions have been asked about [the status of BENEDICTION drummer] Nick Barker [formerly of DIMMU BORGIR and CRADLE OF FILTH]. Yes, he is still BENEDICTION's drummer, and yes, he is helping TESTAMENT out on drums on their tour and album. This was discussed between us and it is no problem to either band. Put yourself in Nick's shoes — one of your favorite bands of all time asks you to use your drumming skills on their tour and write on their new album; it is a chance of a lifetime! It was talked about on both sides and Nick had our full blessing on this. On some of the festivals in Europe this year he will be playing sets for both bands on the same day! If you know Nick, then you will know that there is no problem with stamina! How many bands do various members of NAPALM [DEATH] play with on top of their own NAPALM DEATH thing? Frank Healy and Dave Hunt from BENEDICTION also play and record with other bands (ANAAL NATHRAKH, MISTRESS, CEREBRAL FIX). The loyalty within the band is also strong so we have no problems about these things happening. Nick could have left BENEDICTION if he wanted. We said we would understand if he wanted to join one the most legendary outfits in the world. He wanted to stay as a part of BENEDICTION. That speaks volumes. BENEDICTION is a unit, not a single person. Our live shows this year will let the music do the talking for us."

BENEDICTION's new album, "Killing Music", will be released later in the year via Nuclear Blast Records, with whom the band recently re-signed. The CD will mark the recording debut with the group of drummer Barker, who was most recently a member of BRUJERIA and who played with ex-FEAR FACTORY guitarist Dino Cazares in the short-lived DRIVEN BY SUFFERING (working name).
