Set to be released on October 1st, 2021, Anthropogenic is Varnok’s new offering; the culmination of the work done throughout the lockdown, which was spent writing and recording new material. Going for the old-school thrash metal sound they had committed to, this time Varnok are also pushing towards a bit of a more technical sound, a positive consequence caused by the departure of their bassist, something that forced the band to act as a two-piece in the interim period and be more productive than ever.
The concept of Anthropogenic presents the idea of human extinction being self-inflicted, as a lot of what is on this EP reflects self-destructive tendencies.
«We tried to make the most of the lockdowns by writing and recording as much as possible», the band comments. «Now that we are out of the dark in that regard, we want to get out there and tour as much as we have the opportunity for, especially places we haven’t been.»
