On its third opus, “Cranial Obsession,” hereby released under the auspices of Nuclear War Now! Productions, Anatomia continues along this same trajectory of development. Still present are the mid-tempo campaigns of malignancy that have led to the comparisons with bands like Autopsy. However, these songs also demonstrate the band’s evolution into something more multi-dimensional with the inclusion of keyboard-backed, lower-tempo intros and interludes that bind the preceding and following death gallops, as in “Necrotic Incision”, and outros of a similar nature, as in “Fiend.” Even more strikingly, this album is characterized much more so than its predecessors by several significantly longer songs of eight to fifteen minutes each that feature extended funeral dirges and bleak soundscapes of decay. The presence of these tracks intermingled with those of a higher pace reflect an expiring human corporal vessel that alternates between the agonizing affliction of the disease that consumes it and the soothing bliss of the inescapable, terminal fate that awaits it. This fate is effective sealed with what ominously promises not to be the final hymn of expiration, “Recurrence.” Thus, with the multi-faceted expression of pain and despair that is “Cranial Obsession,” Anatomia has mastered the full spectrum of the aural embodiment of death.
