ANAAL NATHRAKH Signs To METAL BLADE RECORDS

Metal Blade Records has announce the signing of Birmingham, England's ANAAL NATHRAKH.

Comments ANAAL NATHRAKH: "We are very pleased to announce our signing with Metal Blade Records. It means we are joining a roster with some truly titanic figures, and a label responsible for releasing some utterly legendary albums. Few other labels can touch their legacy in metal. With Metal Blade's reputation and clout behind us, we look forward to previously undreamed of levels of despoilment."

ANAAL NATHRAKH was created for one purpose — to be the soundtrack for armageddon, the audial essence of evil, hatred and violence, the true spirit of necro taken to its musical extremes. Since its inception in 1999, the band has gained a reputation for embodying precisely these things, with a history including not only the release of seven albums and an EP to rapturous acclaim, but collaborations with such legendary figures as Attila Csihar (MAYHEM), Shane Embury and Danny Herrera (NAPALM DEATH), Nick Barker (CRADLE OF FILTH, DIMMU BORGIR), Joe Horvath (CIRCLE OF DEAD CHILDREN), Sethlans Teitan (WATAIN) and so on. This, alongside appearing on BBC Radio 1 at the personal behest of sadly missed icon John Peel, headlining a stage at the renowned cult Inferno festival in Norway as their debut international live appearance, countless placings in "best album of the year" polls and album of the month awards in the press and cover appearances on leading magazines such as Terrorizer… ANAAL NATHRAKH's status as one of the leading lights in extreme metal is undeniable.

Uniquely hallmarked by breathtaking musical ferocity, inventiveness and breadth, married with mercurial, intensely misanthropic and sharp intelligence, ANAAL NATHRAKH's sound is imbued with a palpable sense of menace that is virtually unmatched in metal.

With their last album, "Vanitas", garnering numerous accolades including appearing in various "best of 2012" lists and winning first place in the Terrorizer readers' "Album Of The Year" poll (alongside second places in "Best Vocalist" and "Best Band"), ANAAL NATHRAKH is set to reach ever higher on its mission to send the Earth crashing into the Sun with its new label, Metal Blade, and its excoriating new album, to be released later this year.
