Anaal Nathrakh – Endarkenment

For some reason, we didn’t review the last album from the British stalwarts, Anaal Nathrakh, A New Kind of Horror, despite reviewing the band’s album pretty consistently from blistering the debut, The Codex Necro, through personal favorite Eschaton, more direct Vanitas, to 2017s The Whole of the Law. But let’s be honest, does it really […]

Anaal Nathrakh – The Whole of the Law

England’s Anaal Nathrakh have been kicking the snot out of extreme metal fans worldwide, since the late 90’s.  I was late to their camp, due to the impossibility of being able to afford every release.  Thanks to Graham Landers, from Deepsend Records, for recommending them to me some years ago.  I remember getting a Christmas […]

ANAAL NATHRAKH signs to Metal Blade Records!

Metal Blade Records is proud to announce the addition of ANAAL NATHRAKH to its roster! Comments ANAAL NATHRAKH: “We are very pleased to announce our signing with Metal Blade Records. It means we are joining a roster with some truly titanic figures, and a label responsible for releasing some utterly legendary albums. Few other labels can touch their […]

Anaal Nathrakh – Vanitas

I don’t think there’s any questioning Anaal Nathrakh‘s place in the pantheons of metal. Their debut, The Codex Necro, now 10 years old, remains one of the most frightening and apocalyptic releases ever recorded, and while the decade since has seen the band hone and polish their grinding black metal tones into a different sounding […]

ANAAL NATHRAKH Prepare For Release Of Vanitas

Candlelight Records today confirms November 6 as the North American release date for Vanitas, the new album from England’s ANAAL NATHRAKH. Produced by Mick Kenney (Bleeding Through, Ingested), the album carries the band’s signature and regarded union of black metal and grindcore. There is no other band that creates music as frightening as the Birmingham-based […]

Anaal Nathrakh – Passion

The differences between the last four records from the UK’s preeminent black metal duo, Anaal Nathrakh, have been subtle and nuanced; so much so that it can really make a reviewer feel like a complete nitpicker. This is where being a fan of the band’s abrasive-yet-dynamic black metal shredding, and perceiving their subtle shifts under […]

Anaal Nathrakh – In the Constellation of the Black Widow

As England’s most extreme export since Napalm Death have made their transition from apocalyptic black metal to grindcore, they have managed to retain some of intensity and ferocity of The Codex Necro, though far less caustic, and have been able to introduce some love ‘em or hate ‘em clean croons amid the mechanical, robotic blasting […]


Candlelight Records today confirms the worldwide signing of England’s Anaal Nathrakh. The popular extreme metal duo are currently in the studio working on their label debut titled In The Constellation Of The Black Widow. The album is expected for a summertime release. Vocalist V.I.T.R.I.O.L. says, “Candlelight have shown a strong belief in Anaal Nathrakh and […]

Anaal Nathrakh – Hell Is Empty and All the Devils Are Here

Despite really not being a pure black metal act any more, Anaal Nathrakh’s hideous transformation into a more refined but still seething black/death/grind outfit still sees the band delivering some of the most vitriolic and intense yet intelligent extremity around. Where Eschaton had the clean tones of Domine Non Es Dignus, it still reverted to […]

Anaal Nathrakh – Eschaton

First, after re-listening to The Codex Necro in preparation for this review, there is no doubt in my mind that the debut album from this British duo was and is one of the most extreme releases ever and arguably the most important extreme record to come out of the UK since Scum. That being said, the […]

Anaal Nathrakh – Domine Non Es Dignus

Roughly translated as ‘Lord, You Are Not Worthy’, Domine Non Es Dignus is the highly anticipated follow up to the utterly devastating debut The Codex Necro which due to its caustic, barren and apocalyptic sound, arguably made England’s Anaal Nathrakh one of the most extreme black metal acts around. So how does album number 2 […]

Anaal Nathrakh – The Codex Necro

There must be some foul work afoot in England. First Akercocke, now Anaal Nathrakh. England is producing some supremely evil and menacing music once again. This two-piece project follows hot on the heels of the recent neo-black metal craze, with also a nod to the industrial programming of The Berzerker and the result is some […]
