Anthology is Quarashi’s best of album. Released around the middle of October 2011 it coincides with the bands 15th. anniversary and is a three disc release, consisting of two CD’s and a dvd.
The Anthology package is full to the brim with both popular and rare material from Quarashi. Seldom or never has a band managed to sum up their career so efficiently, without solely releasing content which had been previously released. Therfore the package is meant both for those who want to own all of the band’s greatest hits on one album and for the hardcore fans who would like something a bit more special.
This is how the band wants to say goodbye to their fans-by making sure that Quarashi’s last release will be as magnificent as possible.
Anthology has been released digitally as of today, October 18th, 2011!

This is a unique chance for Quarashi’s fans, because those who buy the release through the web-store this week will receive two never-before released (or heard) Quarashi songs as a bonus. The songs will not be on the hard-copies of Anthology which will be released in stores this Saturday.
The songs are Shady Lives which was made in co-operation with Opee in 2003 shorty after Mess it Up became popular and the song An Abductee which was written for Jinx but didn’t find it’s way onto the album.
Physical copies will be available for international buyers from http://www.skifan.is later this week![/box]

As an early gift to the fans, Quarashi released a song on their official Facebook page on Tuesday, September 27 th.
The Song is called “Beat Em” and was supposed to be released on Jinx back in 2002, the song contains previously unreleased rhymes from Ómar and Hössi. Check it out on SoundCloud!
A second Anthology preview has been released and this time it’s a taste of what we can
expect from the DVD.
It’s a live video of Baseline being performed at Quarashi’s July 15th. 2011 show at Nasa.
So far Anthology is looking pretty kick-ass!
