Stream the New Anaal Nathrakh Song “Depravity Favors the Bold” Right Now!
Ahhhhh I fucking love Anaal Nathrakh! Sure, there’s heavier music out there, but these guys are pretty fucking heavy, and there’s something about them that’s just so intense. Maybe it’s the mix of some of the gnarliest screams and most operatic vocals in all of metal together in one place. Maybe it’s the completely over the top, brick-walled production (which can so often be an auditory nuisance but just WORKS for these guys). Maybe it’s their churning, visceral riffs, or their frenetic, breakneck drums. I don’t fucking know, but this band just does it for me every single time.
Anaal Narthakh will release their new album The Whole of the Law on October 28th via Metal Blade (pre-order here), and they’ve just put out the first single from the record, “Depravity Favors the Bold.” To say it’s a ripper would be an understatement — it’s perfect, for all the reasons I already described above.
