Anaal Nathrakh - Passion (2011)

Alrighty. After you-know-who removed the original post, I decided to upload it again since it's been two months already.

Anyway, Anaal Nathrakh is undoubtedly the best black metal band today. Their composition and mysterious lyrical content that dwells mostly in the field of nihilism have brought them a lot of praise, and yet they are still being true to themselves by keeping it as underground as possible.

Mick's music and Dave's vocals will always and in any given circumstance invoke something! Whether it's a sense of pure amazement or just full on disgust, it will most definitely make you feel and contemplate something.

This album does the same. You either love those wicked array of vocals, sickening background noises and that complex wall of thunderous music... Or you don't. But, if that's the case, let me assure you, you won't feel phlegmatic about it. You will hate it, and whether you like that or not, that's an invoked feeling.

Whatever the case may be, this is still one of the most impressive black metal bands out there. Cheers.
