Anaal Nathrakh - When Fire Rains Down from the Sky, Mankind Will Reap as It Has Sown

Here's a good example of a band that I truly love, but only turn to in times of great desperation and grimness. Anaal Nathrakh plays a rabid blend of black, death, grind, and assorted other metals so violently and hideously that only it can make the impending end of the world seem comforting. Lyrically they concern themselves almost exclusively with apocalyptic matters, from the occult to the stupidly self-inflicted, and musically they sound like it's already upon us. Which it well might be, judging by recent events.
We Can Never Be Forgiven

(((link fixed)))


  1. Great record, haven't listened to it in a while. I wish they had continued in this filthily raw style.

  2. Tried the link twice, but both times Winrar couldn't unpack the first song saying it was corrupted. Since I've never been disappointed with a download so far,outside of Mourn--but that's a minor aberration, I shall continue to seek out this album.

    Still, I thought you should know.

  3. Hm, I'll fix it shortly. Thanks for the head's up.

  4. Okay, fixed. Was the Mourn album broken too?
