Today, Putrid Cult sets February 19th, 2021 as the international release date for Upon the Altar‘s striking debut album, Absid Ab Ordine Luminis.
There is no crystalline sound, no polished, touching solos, no virtuosity – there is METAL. That and only that, in its purest form, with inspiration from the early ’90s and the cult of DEATH. The destruction of civilization as you know it will be done in the light of nuclear explosions and in the accompaniment of the apocalyptic hymns composed by Upon The Altar.
The sense of aesthetics of its creators for many will be a degeneration and provocation. Absid Ab Ordine Luminis is a trip to the dangerous areas of cemeteries, where ritual mutilations go hand in hand with bodily pleasures… It’s a piece of rusting, blood-dripping metal for maniacs of Teitanblood, Vassafor, Temple Nightside, and Morbosidad. Simply, it is Upon the Altar, and it’s likely NOT for you.
