I know what you’re about to say: “a lyric video for Anaal Nathrakh? Impossible!” Better believe it, though, because the UK extreme duo notorious for never releasing any lyrics for their songs have done just the opposite. Check out the lyric video for their blistering new track below.
The music video was created by Metal Blade Records‘ Vince Edwards, based on his interpretation of the lyrics (and approved by the band on that basis).
In case you missed it, the title track for Anaal Nathrakh‘s new album was released last month. Check it out below if you haven’t seen it already. ‘Endarkenment‘ is due for release at Metal Blade Records on October 2nd.
Extremity has been Anaal Nathrakh‘s stock in trade for more than two decades, and with ‘Endarkenment‘, they maintain their legacy of aural devastation. However, for all the furor they stir up, the duo have never been a two-dimensional entity, with a great deal of depth involved in everything that they do, and on many levels the new record is distinguished from its predecessors.
I think in terms of feel, it’s brighter, more open and direct than maybe we’ve been in the past
States vocalist Dave Hunt,
Obviously I don’t mean it’s happy-go-lucky sounding, or suggestive of a sunny disposition. I mean something more like it burns with light rather than glowers with darkness. It’s coruscating.
The evolution since 2018’s towering ‘A New Kind Of Horror‘ has been personal and profound, and is very much in line with that experienced by many of their listeners.
Personally, I feel more cynical, more bitter, with a greater sense that the world is fucked, and is continually re-fucked by people who have no idea what they are doing. Musically, I think we’re more mature – not less frenetic, but better able to channel our energies where they’ll be most effective. That’s an ongoing process, you never finish growing into what you’re doing and being better able to push at the edges of what you can do. But we aren’t interested in evolving what we do, only how we do it. We remain unlike the vast majority of other bands in our sound, and we’re proud of what we do.
Sounds promising as usual. I’m telling you October cannot get here soon enough.
