ALTARS ABLAZE - Life Desecration, MC

Many releases promise an uncompromising degree of sonic destruction, but rarely follow through with ideas interesting and well-crafted enough to deliver on that promise. Life Desecration, the debut offering from Czechia’s ALTARS ABLAZE takes a nuclear sledgehammer to that trend. Prepare for a flurry of blackened death carnage that concentrates enough concussive force to rival the most vicious of their more primitive antecedents. But this quintet sets itself apart by refusing to sacrifice compelling artistry in the pursuit of sonic savagery.

ALTARS ABLAZE’s mode of attack hearkens back to the finest moments of the infernal blasting death metal of the late 90s (embodied by the likes of ANGELCORPSE, HATE ETERNAL and DIABOLIC), blended with the most aggressive specimens of Nordic black metal, such as 1349 and SETHERIAL. But these are merely convenient points of reference. ALTARS ABLAZE are consummately unique in their interpretation of their style, with nuanced riffing and a command of dynamics, far exceeding those of any superficially comparable act. A new more dynamic master especially for this release. Thanks Lavadome Productions for their help. Unleashed to commemorate band's performance at Prague Death Mass.







 

HATE FOREST - Celestial Wanderer / Sowing with Salt, MC

After 16 years of deathlike slumber, Hate Forest came back from their frozen steppes with a new album Hour Of the Centaur created and recorded in few days of April 2020. The band has managed to conjure the same unpenetrable dark wall of sound and bottomless maelstrom only HATE FOREST can spawn. This laconic and honest black metal crafted on Old Europe's eastern frontier, full of disgust to modern pseudo "black metal" and eastern invanders has now been completented by 2 new tracks of the Sowing with Salt EP, which we are now releasing together with the 2 tracks from the Celestial Wanderer bonus 7'' EP which originaly came out of the Hour of the Centaur recording session. The tape is limited to 111 hand-numbered copies and all proceeds both from the band and the label will be forwarded to the brave defenders of Ukranian army.
