ANATA‘s 1998 classic debut full-length on vinyl for the first time ever at last!

Back in 1993, Death Metal had started taking a turn towards either more melody-driven stuff in Europe (At The Gates and most of the Gothenburg scene) or way more brutal stuff in the US (Suffocation and the likes…) but one band, formed that same year in Varberg (Sweden), stood out from all trends and that one band was the only able to fill the gap between the two different directions: ANATA.

Released in 1998 through then recently launched French label Season of Mist, ANATA‘s debut, “The Infernal Depths of Hatred“, took the unsuspecting Death Metal scene by storm combining a sped up version of the trademark melodic, catchy and uptempo Gothenburg “New Wave of Swedish Death Metal” sound (At The Gates, Soilwork, Dark Tranquillity…) with faster, relentless, heavy parts influenced by the rawer, darker and heavier typical US Death Metal of that time (Morbid Angel, Suffocation, Cannibal Corpse…).

This brand new 2016 reissue, specially remastered for analog physical supports by gifted sound engineer Frédéric Motte at the Conkrere studio (LOUDBLAST, MERCYLESS, OTARGOS…) comes with a bonus Morbid Angel cover version (“Day of Suffering“) from ANATA‘s 1999 split with Bethzaida, “War, vol.II“.
