  I assume it will be released on December 21, 2012?

  Another I enjoy so damn much the last one

  According to an interview with Dave it's probably going to be called "Vanitas". Super stoked.

  Immortal and Lord Mantis had a baby. It was Anaal Nathrakh.

Yes I know Anaal Nathrakh came before Lord Mantis, but no other band I can think of fits the description.

  I have a gut feeling it's going to be even better than Passion. Looking forward to it.

Haven't you heard the teaser? It sounds like In The Constellation Of The Black Widow.

Rating: 9 I am incredibly happy to say that this album has been playing non stop since this morning. Damn is it good. Easily giving it a 9. Has a little more structure, not soooo chaotic. Sounds great.

Rating: 10 Wow... I usually only give 10's to all time favorite albums, so this is only a 9. Easily the best release this year for me. This album is the definition of controlled chaos, just perfect.

Rating: 9 This is awesome! I am not familiar wth them and this is their first album i've heard. So, are the previous albums anything similar or? I am asking because i can' hear grindcore and even black here and everywhere they are labeled as grind/black. :S Maybe i'm wrong but to me it sounds more like some sick extreme melodeath.

If you're looking for the chaotic sound, check 2001's The Codex Necro and 2009's In The Constellation Of The Black Widow.

All of their albums have different sound, ranging from black metal, death metal, industrial metal, grindcore and crust. Shit's too extreme to give a proper genre.
MechanisT - 15.10.2012 at 22:05  
  I still feel Eschaton is their greatest work, but yeah these guys are consistent as hell. Another great album to boast of.
J. N. - 15.10.2012 at 22:22  
  Absolutely mind-blowing.
psykometal - 15.10.2012 at 22:39  
  So I'm checking this album out on their youtube channel and this albums sounds a lot more death metal than other stuff I have heard from them. I have Eschaton and Hell Is Empty which are both very much black by majority but this album sounds much more death metal to me, especially the drumming. I like it, I never really got that into Anaal Nathrakh but I like what I'm hearing on this album so far.
The Voyager - 16.10.2012 at 07:38  
Rating: 8 Was a little disappointed that they toned down the clean vocals. I may be in the minority, but I loved the clean choruses from Passion. Dave's voice is amazing. Still, a very good effort.
psykometal - 16.10.2012 at 08:07  
  So I got the album now and am currently jamming it at home, this album is pretty fucking awesome. I'm gona have to go back and listen to the others again. Sometimes it just takes time to really get into a band's style, glad my tastes seem to have finally come around.

Just DL for now, that's what I did. Lol. Been jamming it all day.
psykometal - 17.10.2012 at 00:56  
  Speaking of that, I still fail to hear the grind that everybody talks about, I have listened to these guys a number of times over the years (but for some reason it wasn't until now that my brain finally clicked and went "holy fuck these guys are awesome, time to jam the fuck out of their discography and get very well acquainted with them!") but I have never really heard the grind aspect that so many talk about. I hear hints of grind-y moments on Domine but Codex is almost straight black metal and Eschaton and after all sound more like blackened death metal to me than grind. Every time I listen to a grind band like Nasum, Cattle Decapitation, Napalm Death, etc. they all just sound like death metal bands trying to play punk (obviosuly I'm aware that's not those bands intention but that's what I hear when I listen to them), which is why I don't care much for grind cuz I don't like punk. Am I missing something?
Mr. Doctor - 17.10.2012 at 01:09  
  Death metal bands trying to play punk? The funny thing is that I listen close to no punk at all. Some bands I dig have punk elements but that's it. I never felt you had to like punk to like grindcore or that you can't like grindcore if you already don't like punk.

But yeah.... There is shittons of grind in Anaal Nathrakh. I honestly have no idea how to explain that to you since it me it's natural.

Well that's just what I hear in my own head. I'm not saying people who like grind will like punk or people who like punk will like grind. Just that in my head when I listen to a grind band (or what people tell me are a grind band) I hear what sounds like either a death metal band playing punk or punk band playing death metal (take your pick but basically it sounds to me like death/punk or deathened punk or punked death metal or whatever you wana call it but there sounds like a heavy punk element to me) and just me personally I don't care for punk so that connection in my head makes grind an unappealing genre for me. And when I listen to Anaal Nathrakh I don't hear what I perceive to be grind, I hear blackened death metal. Maybe you could recommend to me some grind bands that play grind like Anaal Nathrakh apparently play it?

I like to think of myself as a bit of a genre nerd when it comes to metal but grind is a genre that I have never cared for and I have tried to get into it several times over the years but never can so it is not something I have strong basis of knowledge about.
IronAngel - 17.10.2012 at 18:25  
  Surprisingly straightforward and accessible. I haven't listened to this band in years so I don't know the direction they've taken recently, but I remember them being a lot stranger. That may be in part because my ears have adapted to extreme music, though.

Enjoying the first few tracks so far, though. I love how Forging is both incredibly catchy and melodic, but also noisy and abrasive.
Alex Fenger - 18.10.2012 at 01:03  
Rating: 7 Really liking it. Given the trend of mediocrity in their recent albums, i'm saying this is their best since Eschaton, nice.
They'll probably never go back to the amazing, blackened grind of their debut. But I do really like the more melodic moments on this album, which would normally turn me off on a release like this.

If you're looking for the chaotic sound, check 2001's The Codex Necro and 2009's In The Constellation Of The Black Widow.

The Codex Necro indeed is good, still need to check the latter one.

Oaken - 19.10.2012 at 16:36  
Rating: 9 Blending the brutal aggression of death metal, the atmospheric melancholy of black metal and the sick craze of grind in such a mesmerizing way isn't an easy feat. I also enjoyed the industrial touches, and the clean vocal choruses are fantastic. As good as Passion IMO.

!J.O.O.E.! - 22.10.2012 at 22:36  
Rating: 7 It's precisely your lack of understanding which leads you to the false conclusion that it's noise.
IronAngel - 23.10.2012 at 02:06  
  I wouldn't be too hard on him. Noise both a vague word in the English language and a specific genre of music. "That noise is giving me a headache" doesn't mean somebody's blasting a Merzbow record outside your window, any more than calling music heavy means you think it's traditional heavy metal.

But yeah, this is incredibly accessible, catchy and well-produced to anyone whose ear is a bit accustomed to extreme music. Didn't think I'd fall in love with it this much, might make it my top 10 metal albums of the year.
