Altars of Grief's new album "Iris" is officially released today!
Order packs are available in our webshop, and as usual the album is available for full streaming and Name-your-price" download on Bandcamp.

Reviews: "Just as thoughts turn toward Spring and the coming of new life, this should be enough to take the wind right out of those seasonal sails. Death-doom indeed." @theobeliskil "Altars of Grief remind us that there is no sound heavier than that of our own sorrow, and no art more powerful than that which stirs a yearning in our very souls." @toiletovhell "Canada has not seen this caliber of blackened doom in many years, and it’s inspiring to hear what was lost being reincarnated in a new, yet familiar way." -Kaje Music "With this second album, Altars of Grief crown themselves, without a hint of arrogance, the lords of Canadian doom. "Iris" is so good."
-Ultraje "Over eight tracks, the quartet melds the finer points of black and doom into a truly stirring composition"
@noisey "For all its darkness, Iris also feels at times like a ray of light piercing the all-encompassing night; a small ray of hope in a world that is all-but devoid of such a concept. The emotional catharsis on offer is on par with the greats of doom and gothic metal, and it’s hard not to be swept along by the pull of Iris, embraced within its bleak, yet paradoxically comforting sounds. " -The Sound Not the Word

ALBUM PREMIERE: Altars of Grief - Iris

The wait is over! You can now stream "Iris" in its entirety courtesy of @noisey
https://noisey.vice.com/en_us/article/59jmg3/altars-of-grief-bring-death-and-doom-to-the-canadian-prairies "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 @raphcello (who has also contributed to Musk Ox, Woods of Ypres, The Visit, Thrawsunblat, and Leprous)." #altarsofgrief #iris #fallintoiris #doommetal #deathdoom #deathdoommetal #canadiandoom #prairiedoom #saskatchewanmusic #saskmusic #albumpremiere #blackmetal #blackeneddoom #blackeneddoommetal #isolation #desolation #addiction #voicesofwinter #woodsofypres #mydyingbride #adoravivos #swallowthesun #insomnium #noisey #funeraldoom

Altars of Grief's new album Iris now available to pre-order!

Additionally there are also larger packs available which includes a brand new Iris inspired shirt (available in sizes S - 2XL), a patch, and 2015's Of Ash and Dying Light split album with Nachtterror.

Check the HDR webshop for all the options! Release date is March 21. *** Prairies doom metal juggernaut Altars of Grief is back with its second full length album Iris. Following the acclaimed Of Ash and Dying Light split album of 2015, this new symphonic blackened doom offering is more dynamic, more layered, and is without the shadow of a doubt the more accomplished work from the Saskatchewan band to date, yet it captures the darkness and light dual personality that Altars of Grief developed since 2013. On Iris, melancholy reaches new depths of beauty and sorrow. Those who stare at the dying light will fall before it.

@jasoneisenberg73 I remember the first time I heard this band. I was driving your beamer to Atlanta to a convention blasting this. More Sabbath then Sabbath. 17 years later I still think they kick ass..#sheavy #canadiandoom #stonerrock

Altars of Grief to release new album Iris on March 21, on Hypnotic Dirge Records

Since its inception in the Winter months of 2013, Saskatchewan's Altars of Grief grew to become one of the most dominant doom metal bands from the Canadian Prairies. In its first five years, it played numerous festival and toured Western Canada on several occasions, developing a bold scenic presence and memorable visual identity. Along with its symphonic signature sound, the band is also known for weaving soaring choral arrangements with powerful, driving death metal; morose, gothic doom and uptempo black metal.

After selfreleasing its first full-length album This Shameful Burden in 2014, Altars of Grief joined forces with symphonic black metal entity Nachtterror to release the split album Of Ash and Dying Light in 2015 on Hypnotic Dirge Records. In 2018, the melancholic blackened doom juggernaut returns with Iris, a new full length album of devastating proportions. Introducing new levels of dynamics, along with more layers and textures to its songwriting, Iris is the frail beam of light coming through an ominous black sky, the beautiful yet desolate cry before a tragedy. Containing equal appeal and oppression in its aesthetic, this new album will raise the bar for Canadian Doom-Death.

This album will appeal to fans of doom and symphonic black metal. Recommended if you like Woods of Ypres, Adora Vivos, Swallow the Sun, and October Tide.

Adjust the light. Fall into Iris. Follow the Canadian juggernaut into a new level of doom and despair.

French-Canadian band Norilsk is back with a captivating new album, as thick and heavy as permafrost. Le passage des glaciers follows in the footsteps of 2015's The Idea of North, but expands the sound considerably. From a sludgy slab of doom-death, the band has carved further into the icy influences of dark metal, to emerge with a blackened doom-death album with frozen melodies, misty atmospheres, and reflective lyrical passages.

Double header weekend! Tonight we rock Newmarket! Tomorrow we bring the doomed to Toronto at @cherrycolastoronto !

The new album from French-Canadian Doom-Death Band Norilsk is fast approaching - due for official release on November 24. We are now taking pre-orders for "Le passage des glaciers" as well a new limited Norilsk shirt, and some larger packs for the true doom fanatics. "Le passage des glaciers" follows in the footsteps of 2015's The Idea of North, but expands the sound considerably. From a sludgy slab of doom-death, the band has carved further into the icy influences of dark metal, to emerge with a blackened doom-death album with frozen melodies, misty atmospheres, and reflective lyrical passages. This album is presented in a 4 panel digipack with a 12 page booklet including lyrics in French as well as English translations.

Alongside the new album "Le passage des glaciers", a new shirt has been commissioned and designed by Misanthropic Art. (Ultha, Uada, Pillorian, Hooded Menace, etc.) specifically for this album. The shirt is printed on standard Port & Co brand shirts and is available in sizes Small through XXL. Printing was handled by the always reliable and detailed Forest Passage Printing.

An unmerrowed 12.5cm x 7.5cm patch has also been made in limited quantities for this album. The patch is only available as part of the larger Norilsk packs and is limited to 50 copies at this time.
Finally, some all-weather 6.25cm x 5.5cm Norilsk logo stickers have been printed, which will be shipped out with all Norilsk related orders while quantities last. These stickers were printed by StickerGuy who is known for its quality. These stickers will last for years!

You can also order a pack which includes Norilsk's debut album "The Idea of North", which we released in 2015. Much like the upcoming "Le passage des glaciers" album, the debut Norilsk album was also released in a 4 panel digipack with a 12 page booklet with lyrics in both French and English!
