Altar/Cartilage Split Seeing Re-Issue With Bonus Track

It was in 1992 when two promising bands from the Swedish & Finnish death metal scenes released a split album that now, 23 years later, it's one of the most cult splits ever released in the early 90's.

Unfortunately, Cartilage never recorded anything after that and although Altar did a few demos later on, the group disbanded shortly after.

But the legacy still lives and this split album (originally released through former Xtreem Music label Drowned Productions) now gets a re-issue in form of a double CD with 7 bonus tracks by each band taken from early demos - that's a total of 14 songs from each group.

All songs have been remastered (not remixed!) for an optimal sound, preserving the essence from the originals, and the split also comes with new cover artwork, a remake of the original one made by cult Finnish artist Turkka G. Rantanen.

The 2-CD version is set for an August 20th release and in the meantime, you can listen to one track by each band below.
