Altar Of Betelegeuze - Streaming New Tracks

Hey! It's Friday! Robert Smith of the Cure is in love but I'm drunk. And in an ornery mood, so time for a Friday Feel Bad for all you peoples visiting Metal Storm. How 'bout a kick in the junk from Altar Of Betelgeuze?

When last we left AOB they were "one of those pentagram shaped pegs that refuse to be easily pounded into a round hole", tossing some stoner, some doom, some death into their riff factory and exporting some awesome tunes.

Now they are back again, only with a little more in the Arsenal Of Betelgeuze adding a little Alice In Chains vibe into the concoction. Their newest, Among The Ruins is due out April 15th, 2017, giving us Americanos something to look forward to on Tax Day. Hooray.
