ALTARAGE “Demo MMVXV”
Sentient Ruin Laboratories
This is one of those death metal demos that you can find only little information about the band. It seems like all members come from other established bands, as these two songs are forged in excellent guitar riffs and mature structures.
All instruments deliver black miasmas through corrosive musical arrangements. Also, everything has good doses of chaos and fury, with cathartic/bestial vocal lines and sharp guitar riffs. The result is one of the most ominous pieces of darkness I’ve heard lately: a hybrid creature waiting for your soul, formed in abysmal atmospheres and venomous lines. It’s highly recommended, really. As extra info Sentient Ruin will put out the cassette, Iron Bonehead will do the LP and Doomentia records will release the CD version. This is authentic cult to the darkness. – Victor Varas
