    We decided to offer something special to our first 50 buyers in addition to just the digipak CD, which is a A3 size poster of the extended album artwork. This is a very economically priced package and a memorable one at that we hope. This band deserves more and hopefully we're doing enough. Thanks.

about

Altar of Betelgeuze from Finland are onto something special. Not content with playing either doom or death metal, the band merge influences from both realms so to speak and create a seamless sound where clean singing and growls both have a place. Essentially Altar of Betelgeuze play stoner doom but with the heaviness and relative structuring of death metal. Long, winding songs that are at once emotive and crushing enthrall the listener for extended periods of time, while you are left wondering about suitable parallels for this unique band. 'Among the Ruins' is a definitive present-day album, when it's no longer about mimicking your idols but taking the sound forward in a logical, sincere manner.
