Altars of Grief - 2015: Dylan Pinay - Bass  |  
Erik Labossiere - Guitar / Vocals  |  Damian Smith - Vocals   |  Evan Paulson - Guitar / Vocals  |  Zack Bellina - Drums

Hailing from Regina, Saskatchewan, Altars of Grief was conceived in the frigid, winter months of 2013. The band draws from an eclectic musical background, weaving soaring choral arrangements with powerful, driving death metal; morose, gothic doom and frantic, uptempo black metal passages. In 2014, the band released its debut album, This Shameful Burden and followed up with a tour of central Canada in its support. Ever since, the band has been building it's audience through fierce, passionate live performances and has shared the stage with the likes of Fuck The Facts, Insomnium and Dark Tranquillity.  

Now, in 2015, Altars of Grief is set to release its newest offering – a vinyl split with Canadian blackened doom metal outfit, Nachtterror – which will feature a far more diverse and melodic sound than before. The vinyl split, entitled "Of Ash and Dying Light" is set to be released worldwide in a limited edition 10" on Hypnotic Dirge Records on July 10, 2015. Delivering some of the best melancholic blackened doom in Canada and following in the footsteps of greats such as Woods of Ypres. With reflective, sombre, and personal lyrics and music drenched in atmosphere, this is definitely a band to watch that has arisen from the Central Prairie Plains!
