Eschaton is the third album by British black metal band Anaal Nathrakh. Musically, the album continues in the vein of the previous album, Domine Non Es Dignus. Some reviewers have commented that the overall atmosphere and production are at the same time a step back towards the out-and-out ferocity of the band's debut. The album features guest appearances by Shane Embury (Embryonymous) on bass, and Attila Csihar (from Mayhem) performs vocals on "Regression to the Mean".

Background[edit]

The album cover art resembles parts of the Mandelbrot set. "The Necrogeddon" is a re-recording from Total Fucking Necro. The album features sound samples from the television series Blackadder II ("The Destroying Angel"), and the films Saw ("The Yellow King") and Omen III: The Final Conflict ("The Necrogeddon"). Lyrics for the song "When Lion Devours Both Dragon and Child" include an adaptation of text from the Book of Job, chapter 10, and the clean sung parts describe and quote "The Madman's Parable" by Friedrich Nietzsche. The song "The Yellow King" is based off the horror story The King in Yellow by Robert W. Chambers.
