Join Mythology Agency for this exclusive Co-headline show at Scala on December 14th 2022. It’s been over a decade since Japanese black metal legends Sigh graced the British Isles, and over three years since Anaal Nathrakh brought their ferocious and highly-regarded live show to the UK (or anywhere else!). Sigh’s latest magickal opus ‘Shiki’ recently released by the legendary record label Peaceville, shows the band at their absolute peak and is already proving to be some of their most well received work in years. While this will be the first Anaal Nathrakh ritual since 2020’s explosive and monumental ‘Endarkenment’.
Check out some words from Dave Hunt of Anaal Nathrakh for more!
“Pandemics can, apparently, be unpredictable. Sometimes they can push the world into lockdown right when you’ve just recorded a stunning new album. Sometimes a project can blow up during a pandemic and change how you need to approach everything. In our case, there was definitely unfinished business, with any plans for touring in the wake of Endarkenment destroyed by the virus. There was also a change of plan for Mick which meant that his focus had to shift, for the time being at least. But that sense of unfinished business finally got too much to take, and so it was decided that Dave, with Mick’s full support, would team up with a few bad men from the AN live lineup and the peerless Akercocke/Voices stable for a very special evening with the incomparable Sigh in London in December.This is a very rare opportunity to catch SIGH perform in this time zone and one that will very likely not come around again any time soon! In terms of ANAAL NATHRAKH, it is possible that a further select few shows will snowball out of this or it could very well be the last show ever. All we know is that it promises to be a fine night of apocalyptic chaos.”
