4: Anaal Nathrakh - Vanitas

Vanitas As has been customary for the past few releases Anaal Nathrakh comes out with a somewhat more accessible album followed be one that is less so. The albums that fall into the latter category tend to be more interesting, and Vanitas fits there. While it's not quite as furious as 2009's In the Constellation of the Black Widow, it's got enough parts that keep you interested. My sole wish was that they had more songs like Of Fire And Fucking Pigs, when they truly turn the grindometer to eleven, here's hoping to more of that in the future.

4: Anaal Nathrakh - Passion

Passion Anaal Nathrakh don't operate in a very wide spectrum, they swings between grindy black metal and grindy black metal with cleanish vocals. This album sees a slight swing back to the latter, close to Hell Is Empty, and All the Devils Are Here, luckily they don't go as far as they did last time, and there is enough parts filthy black metal to keep this interesting.

4: Anaal Nathrakh - In the Constellation of the Black Widow

In the Constellation of the Black Widow When asked to compare their current work with past or future works the phrase "most extreme" is often abused. Anaal Nathrakh can with some semblance of honesty actually claim this. I know of few other bands where each release in many ways becomes less listenable than the previous one. The barrage of sound that meets you on this album is astounding, and the vocals are as insane as ever. To say that this album isn't for everybody is an understatement; I think the subset of people whom like metal in general and black metal in particular that can actually stand this album are easily counted, and I can't stop listening.
