Eschaton is the third album by British black metal/grind band Anaal Nathrakh. Musically, the album continues in the direction of the previous album, Domine Non Es Dignus, moving further away from the chaotic, wall-of-noise black metal excursions of The Codex Necro, into simpler verse-chorus song structures with occasional clean vocals and more melodic riffs. However most reviewers (digitalmetal.com, Terrorizer magazine and so on) have commented that the overall atmosphere and production are at the same time a step back towards the out-and-out ferocity of the band's debut. The music is still intense, featuring hyperfast drum machine blast beats and V.I.T.R.I.O.L.'s harsh vocals.

The album is also significant in featuring significant guest appearances by Shane Embury (Embryonymous) on bass and Attila Csihar on vocals, the latter offering vocal work on the track "Regression To The Mean", according to the accompanying booklet.

Trivia:
* The Eschaton is the end of time.
* Timewave Zero is an obscure eschatological prediction from numerology and mathematics. It coincides with the Mayan date for the end of the world on the 21st of December, 2012, which can be discerned within the song. The theory has to do with predictions based on fractal patterns, which is likely to be the reason for the fractal pattern used in the album's cover artwork.
