Tue, Feb 14 2017: ALTARAGE
Season of Mist are proud to announce the signing of ALTARAGE. The Basque death metal extremists will release its sophomore album on Season of Mist in 2017.
Regarding their signing, ALTARAGE comment: "We are glad that Season of Mist have joined us on our journey through the nothingness, chanting hymns of failure, and celebrating decay towards our inevitable end. The year 2017 will see a new nihilistic offering. The end is upon us."
In their own words, ALTARAGE were spawned in a nihilistic cauldron of contempt to reach out the nothingness of all planes of existence. Little is known of the secretive death metal band from Bilbao, the largest city in the Basque country of Spain. In 2015 a demo simply entitled after its year of release, 'MMXV' generated interest around the globe and was followed by the critically acclaimed 'NIHL' (2016).

Regarding the new album, NIDINGR founder Teloch (MAYHEM, ex-GORGOROTH, ex-1349) comments: "For NIDINGR, making an album is a very personal and honest thing that takes a toll on everyone involved. We must be true to an idea and execute it. We do not fuck around. As usual NIDINGR experiments with new elements on this album too. The goal was to simplify things without losing quality and still keep the elements that Nidingr is known for, which is a challenge by itself. “The High Heat Licks Against Heaven" is more raw and ‘in your face’, emphasizing the blistering speed and heaviness, which makes it even more extreme. The 7-string guitar is still a big part of the NIDINGR sound, as it has been since the first full album in 2005. As always this is the best NIDINGR album to date.”
'The High Heat Licks Against Heaven' can be ordered in various formats from the Season of Mist shop.
