You Desideratum the New Anaal Nathrakh Album
Anaal Nathrakh continue to broaden my vocabulary: we knew the band was in the studio recording a new album, and apparently that new album is finished and will be called Desideratum. I had no fucking idea what that meant, so I looked it up, and the definition of the word is “something that is needed or wanted.” Like, say, a new Anaal Nathrakh album!
The band made the announcement via Facebook last week:
Finally, we are reaching the stage where things are coming together for the impending release of our new cacophony. For now, we can divulge that the title will be Desideratum. Everything is in Metal Blade’s hands ready for pressing, artwork is finalised, and the release date is pencilled in pending final confirmation.
Expect an update approximately this time next week with release date, preorder information, and a streaming track from the album. Following that, more information and hopefully preview tracks will be made available in the run up to the day itself. Preparations for triage and all emergency measures should be made now.
This info was posted on August 20, so, hopefully, we can interpret “expect an update approximately this time next week” to mean this coming Wednesday, August 27, give or take a day. So now you have a reason to stay alive at least until Thursday.
In the meantime, Europe’s EMP Merchandise had posted the album’s cover. It’s not spectacular or anything, but whatever, NEW ANAAL NATHRAKH!!!
