Do you want a new album from Anaal Nathrakh? Fear not because the British blackened grindcore behemoths have started recording their new and eighth studio album. Mick Kenney is recording new material at his studio in Orange County. If the studio pic is anything to go by, the new album will be dim and suffocating. You can now start daydreaming about the follow-up to Vanitas.
A one-minute teaser video, featuring songs from UK extreme metal act Anaal Nathrakh's upcoming album Vanitas, due out October 15th through Candlelight Records, can now be streamed in the YouTube-video located below.
Anaal Nathrakh's multi-instrumentalist Mick Kenney has teamed up with Brandan Schieppati of Bleeding Through to form Sorrows, a band playing "a mixture of hardcore crustpunk, black metal, electronic beats and super heavy riffage", as Kenney puts it himself. Drum support will come from Trevor Friedrich of Combichrist. The band is currently seeking for a label to release their already recorded debut album. Sound samples can be listened to on the official Myspace: http://www.myspace.com/sorrows
According to a posting by the band, their fifth studio album "In The Constellation Of The Black Widow" will be released through Candlelight Records on June 29th 2009.
A limited edition vinyl will also be released by Feto Records in the same month. More info about that coming soon. A digital single entitled "More of Fire Than Blood" will be released via Itunes on 6th June.
Commenting on the new album, vocalist Dave Hunt states: "Constellation will be faster, more insidious, more ominous, more musically dextrous and wilder than ever before. The album will feature a curve ball guest appearance from Zeitgeist Memento of Mexican extremists Republica."
UK metallers Anaal Nathrakh have issued the following update:
"The work on the new album is nearing completion, and we can now announce the record label via which it will emerge later this year: Candlelight Records."
The popular extreme metal duo are currently in the studio working on its new album, "In The Constellation Of The Black Widow", for a summer release. Vocalist Dave Hunt says: "Candlelight have shown a strong belief in Anaal Nathrakh and looking at some of the acts on their roster both past and present it seems they are capable of backing up their good intentions. With their help, we hope we can finally get the planet cracked in half."
