Anaal Nathrakh’s New Track Takes the Band “Forward!”


The new Anaal Nathrakh album will be called A New Kind of Horror, and its first single, “Forward!,” begins with repeated machine gun and pistol blasts and a cash register’s “ca-ching!” synched to time up with the music. A school girl’s wispy singing haunts the track throughout. How’s that for an opening statement?

We should expect no less from Anaal Nathrakh, who have been pushing boundaries for nearly two decades now. We don’t have much information about A New Kind of Horror other than that it’ll be released via Metal Blade Records on September 28th [UPDATE: the label has now announced the pre-order, available here], but vocalist Dave Hunt did offer the following back in May:

“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.”

We expect more information about the new album will be available very soon. In the meantime, enjoy this one: it’s a fucking banger, both super brutal and insanely catchy.
