Among the leaders of the New Wave of Old-School Death Metal movement, Horrendous raised the bar last year with the release of their sophomore album, Ecdysis. The critically-acclaimed album was considered by many to be one of the year's most impressive releases. Decibel Magazine ranked Ecdysis 3rd on their 'Best of 2014' list and Fenriz listed the album among his favorites of the year. A year later, Horrendous have once again set a new standard for death metal with Anareta, an eight-track offering of highly-evolved and intense OSDM.
Anareta was recorded, mixed and mastered this summer at Subterranean Watchtower Studios (www.SubterraneanWatchtower.com and www.facebook.com/SubterraneanWatchtower). Cover art comes courtesy of Brian Smith.
