UKBMW XVIII: FFFF - Anaal Nathrakh

Yes, even this week I have a Fast and Furious Friday Feature to throw down, or should I say especially this week, because over ten years after it was recorded there is still little in the Black Metal pantheon (which is to say in any musical pantheon) that can rival this track for pure unbridled misanthropic hostility.

The Birmingham duo of V.I.T.R.I.O.L. (Dave Hunt) and Irrumator (Mick Kenney) formed Anaal Nathrakh in 2008 and are continuing masters in producing catastrophic industrial strength Black Metal ultraviolence. If Atari Teenage Riot made black metal, this is how they would do it.  This album was released as we ticked over into the new millenium and there are still very few pieces of music that can match the ferocity with which this track sucks up energy and multiplies the intensity tenfold with each new wave it smashes down upon the listener.
