Altar Of Plagues - Entire New Split Streaming Online

"Light Through A Tomb", a brand new song from Irish black metallers Altar Of Plagues is currently streaming at this location. The song comes off a split with French drone metal outfit Year Of No Light, due out via Music Fear Satan/Radar Swarm Records. The band commented: "We are proud to finally share a piece of music that was conceived in 2007 prior to the recording of our album White Tomb. Revisiting older work which represents an early stage in our development has been a refreshing experience. It is interesting to observe how much the 'black' metal landscape has changed in such a short period of time. When this piece was created, the musical territory in which we resided felt small and largely unnoticed."
