Altar Of Plagues (IRL)


(de.wikipedia.org) Altar of Plagues is an Irish black metal band. After gaining attention in the metal community with a series of demos and EPs, the band released their first studio album, White Tomb, in April 2009 on Profound Lore Records. Following a year of gigging and some changes to the lineup, the group announced their signing with Candlelight Records in January 2010. They embarked on a four week US Tour with blackened doom outfit Velnias ending in Chicago on August 8, 2010.

They played the third annual Hopscotch Music Festival in Raleigh, North Carolina, USA which took place September 6–8, 2012.

(lastfm) Altar of Plagues (engl. für „Altar der Plagen“) ist eine 2006 in Cork gegründete post-Black Metal Band aus Irland.

Sie besteht aus James O’Ceallaigh (Guitars, Keyboard, Vocals), Jeremiah Spillane (Guitar), Dave Condon (Bass, Vocals) und Johnny King (seit 2008, Drums).

Die Texte handeln von Beklemmung, Unterdrücktheit sowie Ökologie und Naturschutz, wodurch Parallelen zu der US-amerikanischen Black Metal Band Wolves in the Throne Room bestehen.
