Altar of Plagues is releasing a split with Year of No Light via Music Fear Satan / Radar Swarm Records. The Altar of Plagues contribution to the split, originally conceived prior to the "White Tomb" sessions, is now available for streaming online via Brooklynvegan. The band also commented:
"We are proud to finally share a piece of music that was conceived in 2007 prior to the recording of our album 'White Tomb.' Revisiting older work which represents an early stage in our development has been a refreshing experience.
"It is interesting to observe how much the 'black' metal landscape has changed in such a short period of time. When this piece was created, the musical territory in which we resided felt small and largely unnoticed. Our split with Year of No Light is now streaming in full thanks to our friends at Brooklyn Vegan."
Destructure Records has issued the following announcement about releasing a split album from Year of No Light and ThisQuietArmy:
"After the release of Ausserwelt, the awesome record and critically acclaimed second album by Year of No Light, we started talking last year with our old friends from Bordeaux about releasing something new from them. We talked about several projects of split and collaborations and eventually all agreed on the idea of sharing a new record with ThisQuietArmy from Montreal, Canada.
"This record pushes the idea of sharing a record to the extreme. Both sides start with a new song from each band, long songs (approx 12 min) which let both bands enough time to develop their own ambiance full of intensity and melodic loops. These new songs are followed by collaborative drones which prove that these two bands were made to work together and share a record.
"The atmosphere is dark but always full of melodies and progressions. The record deserves several playings for the listener to really hear all nuances and details. ThisQuietArmy will be on tour in Europe in April with AUN.
"Year of No Light will do a very few live appearances in the coming months since they started working on a new album after their Russian trip. Artwork has been done by the dedicated Destructure team. This collaborative effort will see the light of day in three versions : transparent clear vinyl, white and black. The release is now on preorder here." More...
