Desideratum is the forthcoming new long player from UK extreme metal misfits, ANAAL NATHRAKH. Applauded for consistently manifesting, “their own special breed of terrifying, mixing up grindcore speediness with giant choruses and riffs that are the audible equivalent of total nuclear annihilation,” by Metal Injection, and crowned, “one of the most utterly fearsome and inventive outfits currently operating in the modern extreme metal scene,” and “aural devastators” by Decibel Magazine, Desideratum takes the definition of the word “extreme” to an entirely new realm of chaos.
In celebration of its official North American release, now less than one week away, today Revolver Magazine offers up a stream of Desideratum in its sinister entirety. Get devastated at THIS LOCATION.
ANAAL NATHRAKH – guitarist/bassist/programmer Mick Kenney alongside vocalist David Hunt AKA V.I.T.R.I.O.L. – replicates the sounds of true evil. With both screaming banshee tirades and traditional vocals set against an dense wall of controlled chaos, what ANAAL NATHRAKH manifests is wholly petrifying yet inexplicably inviting. Hallmarked by crushing musical dexterity, ingenuity and breadth, married with mercurial, intensely misanthropic and sharp intelligence, ANAAL NATHRAKH’s sound is infused with a palpable sense of menace that is virtually unmatched in the metal world. Desideratum was produced by Kenney, with vocals recorded at Necrodeath Studios in Birmingham, and music tracked and mixed at The Black Flamingo in Orange County, California.
Desideratum is slated to detonate on October 28th, 2014 on Metal Blade Records. In the interim, visit metalblade.com/anaalathrakh where you’ll find a host of killer preorder packages.
