ALBUM PREMIERE: "Altars of Grief - Iris" FULL album stream on Noisey

We are pleased to announce some exciting news today. The wait is over! You can now listen to Altars of Grief's new album "Iris" in its entirety courtesy of Noisey.

"Over eight tracks, the quartet melds the finer points of black and doom into a truly stirring composition. Many moments on the record calls to late-era Woods of Ypres (R.I.P. David Gold) like the middle third “Voices of Winter.” There are other moments that showcase a dichotomy throughout Iris. Take the early instances of “Desolation” or the title track, wherein subdued, doomed instrumental passages give way piercing shrieks rip through black metal tremolo and blast beats.

Meanwhile, tracks like “Child of Light” and “Broken Hymn” exude Iris’ most tempered and methodical death and funeral doom. In a holistic sense, this collection of songs culminates into a wonderful testament to sadness, aided by the talents of guest cellist Raphael Weinroth-Browne (who has also contributed to Musk Ox, Woods of Ypres, The Visit, Thrawsunblat, and Leprous)."

You can order the "Iris" digipack on its own or as part of larger Iris packs on the Hypnotic Dirge Webshop
The official release date for "Iris" is next Wednesday March 21, 2018.
