ALTAR OF BETELGEUZE stoner doom/death metal from Finland are 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. The band is coming with a new awesome LP “Among The Ruins” coming out on April 15th via Transcending Obscurity. They released a new track “No Return” from the upcoming album. You can hear it below.
Essentially ALTAR OF BETELGEUZE play 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.
