5.0 out of 5 stars Brutally, brutally, evil, 25 Sep 2009
This review is from: In The Constellation Of The... (Audio CD)
The day Anaal Nathrakh formed, Slayer, Mastadon even Deicide and the like became pop bands.
Words almost fail me when i try to describe the majestic brutality of the blistering noise that rips from my speakers when i play this CD.
Between the eery opening moans of a helpless victim to the abrupt, sudden end you are bludgeoned and battered for thirty five evil, dark, nightmare minutes.
It has all the hallmarks of a classic Anaal CD, the layers of sounds that only open up on subsequent listens, VITRIOLS throat shredding screams of torture and terror, Irrumators tearing and ripping guitars and machine gun drums and it is way darker and more brutal than 'Hell is empty...',and that was a classic.
Anaal Nathrakh are two blokes from Brum, yeah right! This CD is the sound of Satan broadcasting his propaganda direct from the gates of hell.

Having been into a variety of extreme music, having been inspired by bands such as Soilent Green, Napalm Death, Textures, Strapping Young Lad, Meshuggah, Necrophagist, Rotten Sound, Disfear, Isis, Neurosis, and Gojira, I lost interest in much of the genre about a year and a half ago, as there seemed to be a drying-up of extreme releases that actually grabbed me and made me sit up and take note. Indeed, it appeared all the creativity and magic I'd loved about the aforementioned bands had moved into indie and electronic music, specifically bands like Animal Collective, Panda Bear, TV on the Radio, Lightning Bolt, No Age, Yeasayer and the like.

This, however, is absolutely spot on I actually cant seem to stop playing it. The first metal album I've heard in a very long time to really grab my attention.

Anaal Nathrakh... where to start?

In the Constellation... is a masterpiece, from the song titles, to the album art, and of course the songs themselves. All are godlike. AN are not to everyone's taste, so I highly advise looking for a song by them somewhere, and giving it a listen.

The only possible way I could describe Anaal Nathrakh, is like 2 bands playing different things at the same time. Very strange indeed...

If you're open minded about music, and truly believe you'd like this, just get it. In my opinion, you could not go wrong.

To people who don't know what to expect and/or think they might not like it, check 'em out on YouTube. They are a diamond in the rough, rough being the music they play. :)

A highly potent mixture of Grindcore, Industrial Metal, Black Metal and of course, Death Metal. Blended together, brewed and infused with the blood of a Black Widow spider and then boiled to a temperature of 666 Degrees. Just for good measure. :)

Enjoy.

These UK noise-merchants have produced an onslaught of sheer terrifying walls of sound: thick, impenetrable, screeching, wailing guitars & feedback with low, menacing growls & screams stabbing through the morass. It's a challenging listen, it's not easy. You won't want to put it on if you're depressed as it will send you spiralling down the abyss of despair. But what a magnificent cacophony it is. It's a glorious purging mess of sound. I love it, love it, love it!!!! Just open your ears & let it in. Go on...try it!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Pure Hate Music from the Birthplace of Metal, 8 Jan 2010

This review is from: In The Constellation Of The... (Audio CD)
Anaal Nathrakh are a black/industrial metal band from Birmingham formed in 1999 and In the Constellation of the Black Widow (2009) is their fifth full length album. The album as a whole can be classified as vicious black metal delivered through an industrial cacophony of noise and electronic mayhem.

This is a very special album in many ways. From start to finish the pace is unrelenting but this is far from just a slab of mindless noise. It is a diverse and finely tuned dose of sonic hate. It is only after many listens that one can dissect the many layers of well orchestrated musicianship on offer here. Mr. Hunt's vocals vary from torturous screams and guttural barks right through to soaring chants which offer a wonderful dexterity to the crushing music. And underneath this vocal agony there are some excellent leads and unique riffs which cling for dear life to the raging percussion throughout. Alongside this there is excellent use of sound effects which helps create a synthesized rage that truly brings black metal into the digital age. Mike Kenny is the mastermind behind Anaal Nathrakh, being responsible for the production and all the music here, therefore he deserves to be lauded as a visionary in extreme music. Incidentally the production on this album really is of the highest standard with every instrument getting its chance to shine.

This is probably the most extreme album of 2009 and really puts paid to a lot of the current deathcore crop all vying to be the `heaviest' with their over use and over reliance on breakdowns. The sacred art of quality riffing is thankfully alive and well here. In the Constellation of the Black Widow is a testament to musical brutality and nihilism...it is the soundtrack to obliteration and destruction..... it is the soundtrack to armageddon. This is their best album yet without doubt.
