ALTARAGE deliver exactly what the underground buzz around them promised. Their third full-length, ‘The Approaching Roar’ is bristling with black and dissonant death metal fury that immediately evokes a plethora of sinister images in the brain. Their relentless soul-crushing sound is sending the scared mind on overdrive.
Little is known about this secretive death metal collective, except their origin from Bilbao, the largest city in the Basque country of Spain. In 2015, ALTARAGE unleashed a demo simply entitled after its year of release (‘MMXV’), which generated massive interest in the extreme metal scene around the globe. This was soon followed by the debut album ‘NIHL’ in 2016 and their second full length ‘Endinghent’ in 2017, gaining high praise from critics and fans alike.
ALTARAGE return to mercilessly drag you into an abyss of nightmares and twisted meanings. ‘The Approaching Roar’, in their own words, calls the doom inhabitants to reach a whole nothing. Welcome to this new dimension of sonic darkness.
