"Altar of Plagues are able to maintain an interesting style that can be related to other current bands, but suffice to say, doesn't match anything really out there. They have aspects that you could relate to Wolves in the Throne Room, but at the same time it would be unfair to pair them up with that said band. Altar of Plagues carries a strong atmosphere and maximizes that said atmosphere with plenty of distant sounding, calm drone sections as well as monumental, tectonic like build ups and crashes of intensity. The dynamic and varied vocals heighten this intensity and the post-metal-like sections of crashing drums and midpaced riffs bring about a somber and powerful mood."




"The vocal attack alone is a great pleasure from this band. The ravenous male black metal vocals are but just one of the deliveries, on top of those we get great black, almost crust like, female vocals and more powerful sounding post-hardcore/metal sounding male vocals; all of which are excellent and convey so much emotion.

The production is excellent, the composition is above average, there are great sections and riffs full of melody and passion and the band itself is extremely competent at what they do (from a musicianship standpoint as well as a writing standpoint)."




"The atmosphere on this album is harrowing and powerful, the long dwindling sections of endless tremolo picked guitars and surging drums provide for an excellent escape. Altars of Plagues have come out of the gates strong, and continue to impress and make themselves noticed as a potent force in the underground scene. I wouldn't be surprised if they were to blow up globally (i.e outside of Europe) from this album."

Label: Burning World   Origin: Netherlands
Irelandís Altar of Plagues produced perhaps 2009ís best black metal debut album in the shape of the excellent White Tomb. Drawing on obvious influences like Wolves in the Throne Room, it achieved distinctive results with its rich textures and expanses of desolate blackened ambience, which were allowed to mingle with elements thrown in from leftfield (Watchers Restrainedís Khanate homage springs to mind). Tides picks up where that left off fairly seamlessly (though you ...
