United Kingdom's Anaal Nathrakh have returned with a new album which continues their mixture of black metal, industrial and grindcore and this is a review of their 2018 album "A New Kind Of Horror" which will be released on September 28th by Metal blade Records.
A very dark sounding intro starts off the album along with some spoken word parts also being used briefly before going into a heavier direction along with the solos and leads being done in a very chaotic yet melodic style and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats and grindcore elements can be heard.
High pitched black metal screams can also be heard quite a bit throughout the recording along with some clean vocals also being utilized at times while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as the music also bringing in a good amount of symphonic and industrial elements, when tremolo picking is utilized it gives the songs more of a raw feeling and the riffs also bring in a small amount of melody and as the album progresses death metal growls can also be heard in certain sections of the recording.
On this recording Anaal Nathrakh adds more symphonic and death metal elements to their mixture of black metal, industrial and grindcore, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover the horrors of the first world war, contemporary politics and the letters of D.H Lawrence.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Anaal Nathrakh and if you are a fan of this band, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Obscene As Cancer" "New Bethlehem/Mass Death Furies" "Mother Of Satan" and "Are We Fit For Glory Yet?(The War To End Nothing)". 8 out of 10.
