Iris album cover


Altars of Grief

March 2018

Altars of Grief is back with their third full-length album, infused with new levels of dynamics and textures while remaining true to their doom metal roots. The album features eight tracks with storytelling lyrics that will touch the listener through their depth of both beauty and sorrow. Lead singer Damian Smith says the story of “Iris” is rooted in the prairies and how, as a young child, she copes with her sickness, her father’s addiction, and ultimately finds her own faith and sacrifice. The music is rich with orchestral-style metal beats, haunting rhythms, and uncommon vocal ranges. Recorded by: Blue Door Recording & Retrosleep Studios, Regina. Produced by: Justin Bender. M
