ALTARS (Oz) - Paramnesia CD

9.00

At long last, one of death metal's best-kept secrets unleashes their debut album: Australian enigmas ALTARS and their heaving, harrowing Paramnesia. For the past four years, ALTARS have been quietly honing their craft across a demo, two splits, and a single, but on Paramnesia, the trio tear down all boundaries and set their sights for the abyss and ether alike. For Paramnesia is both death metal of a tangibly sepulchral, cavernously physical construct and yet brims with an almost-metaphysical levity as its serpentine structures and technical ecstasy work their black magick across its eight-song expense, reaching total transcendence during the final trio of tracks which comprise the three-part title track. Witness ALTARS' Paramnesia and commune with unforgettable energies. Front cover art by Denis Forkas, with additional artwork and design by Alexander Brown (BNB Illustration, Witchrist)
