Altar of BetelgeuzePress release:
ALTAR OF BETELGEUZE from Finland have quietly released one of the finest albums of this year by impeccably blending stoner, death and doom metal music.

Having released their first official video via METAL SUCKS HERE, DECIBEL MAGAZINE have now premiered their new official video for the song Absence of Light AT THIS LINK.

ALTAR OF BETELGEUZE 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. 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.
