ENDHINGHEN­T

SEA­SON OF MIST SOUL-CHOK­ING BLACK/DEATH DY­NAM­ICS FROM A SHAD­OWY SPAN­ISH SECT Mys­te­ri­ous Span­ish en­tity Al­trarage re­turn with their sec­ond full-length of son­i­cally dis­ori­en­tat­ing blackened death metal night­mare at­mo­spher­ics. Boast­ing one of the most unique sounds of re­cent years, the band’s swathing black waves of graphite sound­scapes broil ever out­wards, util­is­ing the dis­so­nance and spa­cious mis­ery of the most dirgy fu­neral doom acts. Bol­stered along with some speedy tremolo riff­ing to give it some sem­blance of clar­ity and nav­i­ga­tion, Endhinghen­t’s speed­ier mo­ments close the gap from more cav­ernous res­o­nance to suf­fo­cat­ingly claus­tro­pho­bic clam­our. Al­trarage have per­fected the dis­turb­ing abil­ity to to­tally im­merse the lis­tener and this is an al­bum that de­mands time and fo­cus to let your­self be swamped by its di­men­sion-shift­ing black/ death storm. Mak­ing the la­bel leap from un­der­ground Ger­man stal­warts Iron Bone­head to Sea­son Of Mist should give the band the ex­po­sure and the ac­claim that Endhinghen­t rightly de­serves.
