2 stars "The Infernal Depths Of Hatred" is the debut full-length studio album by Swedish death metal act Anata. The album was released through Season of Mist in 1998.

The music style on the album is pretty regular sounding death metal. Deep growling vocals, brutal downtuned guitars and powerful drumming. Anata is not your regular melodic Swedish death metal act nor are they a Swedish old school death metal act. There are elements of the former style on the album but there are just as many US influenced death metal elements on "The Infernal Depths Of Hatred". Thatīs US death metal of the more technically well played kind. "The Infernal Depths Of Hatred" features 8 tracks distributed over 42:14 minutes of playing time and while the quality of the output is consistent, very little sticks out as above standard for the genre or as particularly memorable.

The musicianship are decent, but there is little here thatīll make your jaw drop. The sound production is decent too, but again we are dealing with a very standard product and the sound production could definitely have prospered from more power and punch. "The Infernal Depths Of Hatred" is as such not a bad album, but it just doesnīt stand out from the legions of other death metal albums that are released every year. So calling it bad might be wrong, but calling it generic isnīt. Anata would develop their sound and ultimately show a more progressive side of themselves on later albums, and thereby become slightly more interesting than whatīs the case here, but this particular album is very standard US influenced death metal delivered without offering anything original. A 2 - 2.5 star (45%) rating is warranted.

3 stars Post Technical Death Metal Anata is one of my favorite technical/progressive death metal acts. It's a swedish death band, and you know Sweden. But the great surprise is the different sounding of Anata in comparison with other influential bands of the town, like Dismember/Carnage, Entomb ... (read more)

2 stars This is one of the better death metal bands around. Well, they try to incorporate some quality into their music instead of just being brutal for the sake of being brutal. There are hundreds of bands down that alley. Although Anata is heavy influenced by the likes of Suffocation on this, their ... (read more)
