About Altars of Grief
Hailing from Regina, SK, Altars of Grief were conceived in the frigid winter months of 2013. The band draws from an eclectic musical background, weaving soaring choral arrangements with powerful, driving death metal and morose gothic doom with frantic, uptempo black metal passages. In 2014, the band released its debut album, This Shameful Burden, followed by a tour of central Canada in its support. Ever since, the band has been building its audience through fiercely passionate live performance, sharing the stage with the likes of Fuck the Facts, Insomnium, and Dark Tranquillity. In 2015, Altars of Grief is set to release it’s newest offering –– a vinyl split with Canadian blackened doom metal outfit Nachtterror, which will feature a far more diverse and melodic sound than ever before.
