Altar Of Betelgeuze Reveals New Album Details

Finnish metal band Altar Of Betelgeuze will release "Among The Ruins" via Transcending Obscurity Records on April 15th, 2017. The track listing and title track are available below, while Transcending Obscurity had this to say:

"Altar Of Betelgeuze is onto something special. Not content with playing either doom or death metal, the band merge influences from both realms so to speak and create a seamless sound where clean singing and growls both have a place.

"Essentially Altar Of Betelgeuze plays stoner doom but with the heaviness and relative structuring of death metal. Long, winding songs that are at once emotive and crushing enthrall the listener for extended periods of time, while you are left wondering about suitable parallels for this unique band. 'Among the Ruins' is a definitive present-day album, when it's no longer about mimicking your idols but taking the sound forward in a logical, sincere manner."

02. Sledge Of Stones

05. Absence Of Light
