Anal Cunt Premiere Tracks from ‘The Old Testament’
Two tracks from controversial noise-grinders Anal Cunt's upcoming collection, The Old Testament, have debuted via Decibel Magazine at this location. The tracks contain the band’s first demo from 1988 and an unreleased cover version of a song from a Muppet TV special. This posthumous 2CD collection of all their earliest works will see its release on November 22nd via Relapse Records.
The Old Testament, the last completely authorized Anal Cunt release, showcases the band’s earliest and most forceful work. In addition to the infamous 5,643 Song EP and the bands early split releases, The Old Testament also includes Anal Cunt’s first demo (from April 1988) and last session in 1991, neither of which have been heard by anyone outside the band. The Old Testament includes liners penned by charismatic founder and songwriter Seth Putman shortly before his death, as well as an epilogue from original Anal Cunt drummer Tim Morse, tons of never-before-seen early photos, and much more. The album is available for pre-order here and on iTunes here.
Anal Cunt courted controversy and melted minds with their unique brand of noise for over twenty years. Love them or hate them, the outrageous outfit built a cult following worldwide and became one of the most talked about underground bands of our time. Decibel Magazine has compiled a remembrance to Seth from Phil Anselmo, Scott Hull, Mike Williams, Steve Austin and numerous other artists in the extreme music scene. Their recollections can be viewed here.
Updated Anal Cunt news / album information will be made available at the Relapse Records website.
