ALBUM NEWS: Altars of Grief to re-release debut album “This Shameful Burden” with updated art and bonus tracksMay 17, 2018
Hypnotic Dirge and Altars of Grief presents the re-release of Altars of Grief’s debut album “This Shameful Burden” with updated artwork and bonus material. Pre-orders are available now on the HDR webshop and bandcamp. Altars of Grief will also have copies available with them on tour this summer.
Prior to the release of “Iris”, prairie doom metal band Altars of Grief had already emerged on the Western Canadian doom metal scene with the release of their debut album “This Shameful Burden” in the summer of 2014, followed by a 10” vinyl split album “Of Ash and Dying Light” in the summer of 2015.
Originally self-released by the band, “This Shameful Burden” has been out of print for years, and alas it is finally time for this piece of Altars of Grief’s history to be made available once again. The 2018 edition of “This Shameful Burden” has been updated for a 6 panel digipack with an entirely different layout and design featuring artwork and photography from Necrographix, Wa’guna Wirya’wan, and Josh Langham to go alongside Sam Nelson’s original cover art. Bonus tracks from the “Of Ash and Dying Light” split, previously only available on vinyl, is also included on this release. Recorded by Justin Bender at Blue Door Recording in Regina, SK in April and November 2014.
Limited to 300 copies.
