Bay Area blackened funeral doom collective BARREN ALTAR will release their debut full-length next month. Titled Entrenched In The Faults Of The Earth, the morose offering was captured in the summer of 2017 with Greg Wilkinson (Graves At Sea, Necrot, Vastum) at Earhammer Studios in Oakland, California and delivers five tracks of sonic desolation. Of the record’s overall theme, the band offers, “It’s a metaphysical plea for the voluntary end of all human life, pressed to plastic, and added to the ever-growing dumpster fire that is the modern world.”
Entrenched In The Faults Of The Earth will be self-released on CD (limited to 300 copies) and digitally on June 12th.
Entrenched In The Faults Of The Earth Track Listing:
1. Nexus Of Grief
3. Call To The Waves
4. The Great Awakening Of Death
5. Delirium Vivens

Forged in 2013 with the intention of blending depressive funeral doom with soul-crushing black metal elements, BARREN ALTAR has spent the last five years establishing a formidable presence in the Bay Area music scene via two ferocious EPs and a split seven-inch, numerous crushing live performances, and a deep-seated DIY ethic.
