We are planning to record a 7” vinyl consisting of two new tracks called “State of Decay” and “Barren Grounds”. The pre-production of the two tracks was finished a week ago and rehearsals will start shortly.
We are looking forward to recording the 7” which will show the band from a slightly different angle. We will keep you posted.
We are working on a European Autumn/Winter 2013 mini tour. As some of you may know, we will be playing at this year’s Doom Over Vienna and Hammer of Doom Festival.
We will keep you posted.
The Altar of Oblivion online store is now up and running, and we are ready to take your order.
The forth-coming Altar of Oblivion album “Grand Gesture of Defiance” has just undergone a successful mastering process and will soon be sent off to the pressing plant.
Once again, our US label Shadow Kingdom Records will put out what will be our most thoroughly prepared and professional sounding release to date.
We are all happy with the result which shows the band from a more melodic and mellow side, integrating a bigger amount of clean/acoustic guitars and mellotron parts into our gloom-laden soundscape. Whereas the listener on our newly released “Salvation” EP/MCD was primarily met by a wall of heavily distorted guitars paving their way through the epic layers of doom, the emphasis on “Grand Gesture of Defiance” has been put on a greater interplay between all instruments, making this record way more dynamic and diverse than our previous releases.
