British black metallers ANAAL NATHRAKH have completed their third full length album, entitled "Eschaton", the band's 3rd full length album. The journey through rabid violence, depravity and horrified clarity of vision was this time abetted by, amongst others, Shane Embury (NAPALM DEATH) and Attila Csihar (MAYHEM). Featuring the likes of the berserk rage of "Bellum Onium Contra Omnes" and the epic "When The Lion Devours Both Dragon And Child", the storm of "Eschaton" will thunder forth on October 16th via Season of Mist.
British black metallers ANAAL NATHRAKH have posted the following message on their official web site:
"ANAAL NATHRAKH are approximately 70% finished with the recording of their new album. The following may help plug the gaping hole between now and its release:
Owing to the lack of regard for decency shared by Mordgrimm and Earache Records, the labels have decided to mutually re-release ANAAL NATHRAKH's 'The Codex Necro' and 'When Fire Rains Down From The Sky, Mankind Will Reap As It Has Sown' (label will vary according to territory). To further extend the list of various justifications for their respective punishment, obliteration and damnation, those concerned have chosen to augment these versions of the recordings by the inclusion of the following:
"'The Codex Necro' will have bonus tracks comprising the Peel session recorded for the late John Peel's legendary radio show at the BBC studios at the great man's personal request. These include the first ever performance of 'The Oblivion Gene', later to appear in its full re-recorded form on the subsequent album 'Domine Non Es Dignus'. No, that doesn't mean this session was the first recording of the song, it means it was the first performance EVER, the song was never even rehearsed before this recording session.
"'When Fire...' is reissued with the inclusion of ANAAL NATHRAKH's full live band debut, the 'Rock Show' live session recorded for the BBC radio show of the same name. Notable in this instance, alongside performances from Ventnor and Chemical Nova, are the appearances of Emburyonymous making its live debut for the band, and Nick Barker who bastardised for this recording alone.
"The releases are simultaneous for the American territory on the 18th of April, and releases in other territories will follow in the weeks after this date.
"May this news bring no tears of joy whatsoever to anyone's face, anywhere, at any time."
For their first gig ever, British cyber/black metal act ANAAL NATHRAKH will be headlining a show at The Underworld in London, on December 15 with KHOLD, TED MAUL and LEECH WOMAN as part of Terrorizer magazine's "A Cold Night In Hell 2006" festival. The band will also play the following day in Birmingham with RAMESSES and NARCOSIS at Edwards No. 8. The lineup of bands on this show was picked personally by ANAAL NATHRAKH. Both shows will have a full live lineup completed by Ventnor on guitar, Shane Embury (NAPALM DEATH, LOCK UP, WARHAMMER) on bass and Danny Herrera (NAPALM DEATH, VENOMOUS CONCEPT) on drums. Tickets are available on www.ticketweb.co.uk.
UK black metallers ANAAL NATHRAKH have posted the following message:
Following the recent live session, the BBC will be taking the arguably irresponsible step of broadcasting Anaal Nathrakh playing as a full band from their Maida Vale studios. The show goes out on the evening of the 22nd of March at 1am UK time, and can also be heard through the BBC website both live and for a week or so after broadcast. 3 tracks were performed with, as mentioned, a full band lineup comprising the Anaal Nathrakh duo, Shane Embury ( NAPALM DEATH), Nick Barker ( ex- DIMMU BORGIR), Ventnor and Chemical Nova.
The recordings were described at the BBC studio as a 'grotesque abomination'. This is considered apposite by all involved.
British Black metallers ANAAL NATHRAKH have psoted the following message:
"The BBC have again asked the band to perform a set, this time to be aired on the
Radio 1 Rock Show (broadcast date currently TBC).
To make the occasion particularly interesting, Anaal Nathrakh will, for the first time ever, be performing as a full band. Currently planned to flesh out the lineup are Nick Barker [ ex- DIMMU BORGIR] and Shane Embury [ NAPALM DEATH], although precise details remain to be seen.
British Black metallers ANAAL NATHRAKH have announced through their website that their new album, 'Domine Non Es Dignus', will be released on November 2nd through Season Of Mist.
As previously reported, the band recorded the album at Necrodeath Studios. The release will include the tracks 'Revaluation Of All Values', 'To Err Is Human', 'To Dream - Futile' and 'Procreation Of The Wretched', among others.
British black metal act Anaal Nathrakh have set "Domine Non Es Dignus" as the title of their second full-length album, tentatively due before the end of the year through Season Of Mist Records. The follow-up to 2001's "The Codex Necro" is being recorded at Necrodeath studios and will include the following cuts, among others: "Revaluation of All Value," "To Err Is Human, To Dream – Futile" and "Procreation of the Wretched." No further information is currently available.
British Black metal act ANAAL NATHRAKH have signed an exclusive two-album recording agreement with Season of Mist Records. "The label have been naive enough to sign the deal, and Anaal Nathrakh will shortly commence making them rue the day they were born," the band write on their web site. "Work is already underway on the next Anaal Nathrakh CD, scheduled for a September 2004 release. Planned songs for the album include 'Revaluation of all Values', 'To Err is Human, to Dream - Futile' and 'Procreation of the Wretched'." More information will be made available soon
