DrugMetal.ru conducted an interview with England’s ANAAL NATHRAKH aboard 70000 Tons Of Metal, the world’s biggest heavy metal cruise, which sailed on January 28 from Miami, Florida and returned to the real world on February 1. You can now watch the chat below.
ANAAL NATHRAKH‘s new album, “Vanitas”, was released on November 6, 2012 via Candlelight Records. Produced by Mick Kenney (BLEEDING THROUGH, INGESTED), the CD carries the band’s signature and regarded union of black metal and grindcore.
ANAAL NATHRAKH‘s seventh album, “Vanitas” “sounds like someone showing you what the end of the world is like via the medium of a thousand hammers soaked in acid,” says vocalist Dave Hunt. Digging into the record particulars, he notes, “It’s more articulate and focused than any album before it in way of composition and recording technique. We worked hard and we’re convinced it has paid off.”
Since its inception in 1999, ANAAL NATHRAKH has gained a reputation for embodying the audio essence of pure evil. Various collaborations with the likes of Sethlans Teitan (WATAIN), Shane Embury and Danny Herrera (NAPALM DEATH), and others, have placed the band high on media as well metal fans “must-seek-out” list. This alongside countless placements in “Best Album Of The Month/Year” awards, ANAAL NATHRAKH‘s status as one of the leading lights in extreme metal is undeniable.
