Trivia: Anaal Nathrakh decided to do their possibly last show in London in December 2022. However they will play a few selected festivals this Summer. The future is uncertain. The name “Anaal Nathrakh” is taken from “anál nathrach”, which means “serpent’s breath” in the Irish language. The phrase was taken from Merlin’s Charm of Making in the 1981 film Excalibur. In the movie, the phrase is pronounced [ˈɛənæl ˈnæθræk] (“ANN- all [as in “shall”] NATH-rak”).
