More About Anaal Nathrakh:
Named, “one of the best bands out there when it comes to evoking extreme metal,” by MetalSucks, “a thrill ride of horrors,” by Pitchfork and the, “soundtrack to our demise,” by PopMatters, Anaal Nathrakh — Kenney alongside vocalist David Hunt, aka, V.I.T.R.I.O.L. — exists for one purpose: to replicate the sounds of true evil. Forged in fury in 1999, the duo has gained a reputation for expressing precisely that.

Their winding resume includes not only the release of seven critically lauded long-players and an EP but collaborations with such legendary talents as Attila Csihar (Mayhem), Shane Embury and Danny Herrera (Napalm Death), Nick Barker (Testament, Dimmu Borgir), Joe Horvath (Circle Of Dead Children), Sethlans Teitan (Watain) and more.
Combined with rankings among “best album of the year” polls and “album of the month” in the press and cover appearances on revered magazines such as Terrorizer, Anaal Nathrakh’s position as one of the leading lights in extreme metal is irrefutable. Hallmarked by pulverizing musical dexterity, ingenuity, 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 the metal world.
