The long-awaited split release between two eclectic southern-Saskatchewan metal acts - Nachtterror and Altars of Grief - is now available to pre-order! Beginning with a Blackened Doom foundation, both Nachtterror and Altars of Grief branch from there and incorporate various other influences into their sound, including death-doom, symphonic black metal, and soundtracks music to create fresh and genuine music rooted in atmosphere and emotion! The album was recorded by Justin Bender (Third Ion / ex-Into Eternity )earlier this year at Blue Door Studio in Regina, SK. If the music itself wasn’t a reason enough to pick up this release, artist Sam Nelson has also drawn two amazing and distinct cover images for this release, presented in all its glory and detail on both sides of the record.

“Of Ash and Dying Light” is being release on a 10” record, and is strictly limited to 300 copies, only 100 of which will be available from the Hypnotic Dirge Webshop!!

It should also be mentioned that though the release of this album is July 10, vinyl pre-orders will not ship until early August due to delays at the pressing plant! 

This week, No Clean Singing premieres the first full track from the album, the opening Nachtterror track “Breath of the World Ablaze”:



“Breath of the World Ablaze” is a dynamic soundscape that reflects a variety of musical textures. The song greets you with monstrous vocals, both agonized and bestial, and a slow, dismal melody. Soon enough, the music erupts in a spasm of blasting drums and raking guitars, but then it begins to pound, transforming into a slow, beautiful drift, with sombre, clean vocals, booming bass chords, a melancholy keyboard melody, and a memorable lead guitar motif.

But there’s still more to come as the song builds again in intensity, the swelling torrent of sound accented by the appearance of an Eastern sounding keyboard melody."
