Polish black/death cult Upon the Altar stream the entirety of their highly anticipated debut album, Absid Ab Ordine Luminis, at Decibel magazine’s website. Set for international release on February 19th via Putrid Cult, hear Upon the Altar‘s Absid Ab Ordine Luminis in its entirety exclusively HERE.
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.
