When writing about A New Kind Of Horror in the record’s liner notes, Anaal Nathrakh vocalist Dave Hunt is succinct in his description: “This is not a happy album, it is bitter, vengeful, sarcastic, sardonic, violent, terrified and horrified, terrifying and horrifying in equal measure. Above all, it is human, and all that that entails. It’s as sincere as we could make it.” Those exposed to the ten tracks comprising the band’s tenth full-length will be unable to deny the truth to these words, for lyrically, musically and sonically it is a punishing listen mired in darkness and seething with raw emotion. With multi-instrumentalist Mick Kenney pushing their distinctive hybrid of symphonic black metal, death metal, industrial and grindcore ever forward, Hunt draws lyrical inspiration primarily from the horrors of the First World War, contemporary politics, and the letters of D.H. Lawrence, creating one of the most powerful, timely and unique releases of 2018. “There’s a lot that goes into our albums, of course, but it all comes about as a natural result of who we are, and for ‘A New Kind of Horror‘ we felt early on that it was clearly its own thing. It doesn’t have to stand in comparison with anything, because to us it’s in a class of its own.”

Hamferd releases live video of “Stygd”; set to play shows in Europe next week!

Faroese doomsters Hamferð have released a live recorded video of “Stygd”, the 2nd track from their new album, Tamsins likam, released on Metal Blade earlier this year. The song is part of the recorded album release show on March 17th, 2018 at the old Sjonleikarahusið theater in Torshavn, Faroe Islands. To watch the clip, please visit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLtwVGB7f60

Tamsins likam was played in its entirety, as well as a selection of older songs, including “Odn” – the band’s very first song, which, although being a live staple, was never released.

Singer Jon Aldara comments: “This concert was a meticulous production in regards to performance, sound and lighting, and we felt it was the perfect opportunity to record it properly. It’s a great feeling to have a live recording of Hamferð that does not come from an iPhone or from a festival production that we had little to no control over. We took everything in our own hands and went the whole nine yards with a brilliant crew, well-considered stage design and all the high-end equipment we could get our hands on. Luckily, I really think it shows!”

Hamferð will play a selection of shows in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands in October:
Oct. 2 – Stuttgart, Germany – Club Zentral (w. Egonaut)
Oct. 3 – Leipzig, Germany – Hellraiser  (w. Egonaut)
Oct. 4 – Hamburg, Germany – Bambi Galore  (w. Egonaut)
Oct. 5 – Paderborn, Germany – Metal Inferno Festival
Oct. 6 – Saint Georges, Belgium – From Dusk til Doom 4
Oct. 7 – Tilburg, Netherlands – Little Devil

Additionally, Hamferð will head out on a tour of Scandinavia in December, notably playing Sweden for the first time in their 10-year long career. See below for dates:
