Season of Mist are proud to announce the signing of the Spanish death/black metal band ALTARAGE. The band will release their highly anticipated sophomore album on the label worldwide later this year.
Regarding their signing, ALTARAGE comment: “We are glad that Season Of Mist have joined us on our journey through the nothingness, chanting hymns of failure, and celebrating decay towards our inevitable end. The year 2017 will see a new nihilistic offering. The end is upon us.”
Although little is known about the Spanish band’s origins, ALTARAGE state themselves that the band was “spawned in a nihilistic cauldron of contempt, in order to reach out the nothingness of all planes of existence“. Masters of “primitive, poisonous, electrifying music from a band that’s now squarely on my radar screen for the future.” (No Clean Singing), the secretive metal band from Bilbao quickly gained notoriety in the death metal underground through their self-released demo and their acclaimed debut-full length just last year.
What the press is saying about ALTARAGE:
“They’ve managed to capture a monstrous, obscure sound without burying every instrument, so you can actually hear what they’re doing as they tear at your flesh and drill into your ear holes. Some powerful riffs even emerge amidst the droning and churning of their unhindered ferocity” – Teeth of the Divine
“What Altarage has done is take death metal to a horrendously cacophonous new height” – Cvlt Nation
“While they undeniably divine the restless spirit of doom-tinged Finnish OSDM, Altarage go beyond mere homage or tired pastiche to craft a perpetually shifting clinic in dynamic destruction” – Hellbound
