BARREN ALTAR “Entrenched in the Faults of the Earth”

” Entrenched in the Faults of the Earth”

Battle Helm Rating

To be perfectly honest I don’t understand the logic of releasing a CD in an edition of 300. Unless you think you are cvlt or that you will be cvlt for doing so. Or is it a result of the digital era and it is just me showing my age? This Bay Area black/doom metal band play a sort of haunting metal that feels like a cross between black and funeral doom. This is by no means the most brutal but it is extreme in its own right. Listen carefully to this and you almost get flashes of hell passing by. This is not a happy record by any means (not that black metal is supposed to be happy). This is to me the soundtrack to Dante’s inferno. Anders Ekdahl
