This 10” contains two bands from Saskatchewan in Canada. This vinyl disc is limited to 300 copies and contains two songs by both bands. There’s also a digital edition on which there are three more songs. I’ll stick to the 10” though as that is the one that was sent to us. 

On side A we get Nachtterror; a band that mixes black metal with doom and comes across as a mix of Morgion and Dimmu Borgir to my ears. It’s heavy and bombastic. A fine band of which you can find two more songs on the digital edition.

 The band on side B, Altars Of Grief, I like the best. They also deliver two songs which means they added one more track to the digital version. That song is a cover of the track ‘Room Of Angel’ by Akira Yamaoka and Mary Elizabeth McGlynn that was used for the Silent Hill 3 game. The thing I like most about Altars Of Grief is the fact they mix doom/death metal with post metal. It sounds a bit like a mix of Paradise Lost, Moonspell and Woods Of Ypres. The bands present themselves in a great way on this 10” and therefore it is worthwhile to check out.
