Altars of Grief Update - February 14, 2017

Posted by Nick Skog on Friday, February 17, 2017 Under: Updates
We are excited to announce that on March 16th, 2017, we will begin tracking guitars for our second, full-length album. As always, Justin Bender (ex-Into Eternity, Third Ion) will be at the helm of this production, to ensure that this record sounds as clear and crushing as intended! 

We can also reveal now that the title of this record will be “Iris” and we are shooting for an early fall release. 

Conceptually, Iris is a story very much built on our prairie roots. Told from the perspective of a struggling father, trying to keep his terminally ill daughter alive, the album progresses through themes of addiction, faith and mortality. It’s also safe to say that this is easily our darkest and most dynamic work to date. 

As previously announced, Raphael Weinroth-Browne (The Visit, Musk Ox, Woods of Ypres, Thrawsunblat) will be providing string arrangements on the record and we will also have more, exciting announcements to come.
