British black metal duo Anaal Nathrakh have been possibly the most extreme metal band of the 21st century. Since the terrifyingly brutal debut The Codex Necro was unleashed in 2001 they’ve been plying their trade of blackened grindcore with soaring cleans at a pace as unrelenting as their music, not only touring extensively, but with Desideratum they’ve produced their eighth album in just thirteen years. The new effort is a continuation of their extreme sound, and once again a grinding intensity is fused with an epic sense of melody in another great release.
Recommended for fans of Cattle Decapitation, Aborym, Rotten Sound, Napalm Death.
