Grindcore/black metal unit Anaal Nathrakh has recently announced their tenth full-length album, which will be called “A New Kind Of Horror” and will be released through Metal Blade Records on the 28th of September. So, mark your calendars and start preparing for new music!
When writing about “A New Kind Of Horror” in the record’s liner notes, Anaal Nathrakh vocalist Dave Hunt (V.I.T.R.I.O.L.) is succinct in his description:
This is not a happy album, it is bitter, vengeful, sarcastic, sardonic, violent, terrified and horrified, terrifying and horrifying in equal measure. Above all, it is human, and all that that entails. It’s as sincere as we could make it. There’s a lot that goes into our albums, of course, but it all comes about as a natural result of who we are, and for A New Kind Of Horror we felt early on that it was clearly its own thing. It doesn’t have to stand in comparison with anything, because to us it’s in a class of its own.
The label adds:
Those exposed to the ten tracks comprising the band’s tenth full-length will be unable to deny the truth to these words, for lyrically, musically and sonically it is a punishing listen mired in darkness and seething with raw emotion. With multi-instrumentalist Mick Kenney pushing their distinctive hybrid of symphonic black metal, death metal, industrial and grindcore ever forward, Hunt draws lyrical inspiration primarily from the horrors of the First World War, contemporary politics, and the letters of D.H. Lawrence, creating one of the most powerful, timely and unique releases of 2018.
