Finally, two highly sought-after cult classic albums are back in stock, and now packaged together in a fantastic value deluxe slipcase. Featuring both full length albums from the audial essence of evil, these albums need to be owned by every self-respecting metal fan!
The Codex Necro
ANAAL NATHRAKH’S previous demos had possessed a sense of the traditional in their hyperspeed assault. On “The Codex Necro” the northern blast is replaced by the flesh charring flashover from a furnace, subject matter was more to do with hatred and bile towards more contemporary issues and the music was more like an endurance test than a listening pleasure. There is more venom here than at a rattlesnake convention, I reckon that they had to chain V.I.T.R.I.O.L. (otherwise known as Dave Cunt from Mistress and Benediction fame, while fellow Mistress cohort Mick Kenney covers all other instruments!) down when he spat out the lyrics on this nasty piece of filth. I rather imagine that if they had used the creature from Alien to provide the vocal attack here, the results would not be much different.
“The Codex Necro” is an explosion of spite and malice delivered at raging speed, “Pandemonic Hyperblast” is quite simply a planet killer of a track and (barely) holds within its avalanche of violence one of the most memorable, yet brutal, hooks in extreme metal. As many of you will know by now, the intensity on this first album is unrelenting, though the production holds to necro values, it is powerful and brimming over with serial killer menace. Pick out influences if you want, but this outing stands out alone secure in its own individuality. Irrumator has his fingers in many musical pies and he has not shied away from using diversity to deliver head v sledgehammer consequences.
