As a genre boasting one of the most formidable underground followings in America, Christian metal is the style beared by scores of artists- the majority of which have just peeked out of the water. Included in this list of “rookies” is Altars, a five-piece metalcore act hailing from Colorado Springs, whose first full record is due to be released on the 5th of June. Check out their song, “Scum“:
The album, dubbed Conclusions, is a 12-track collection of brutal riffs and gritty vocals; for new listeners, enough to keep you off your seat…though not new territory for long-time fans of bands such as As I Lay Dying or Demon Hunter. Nevertheless, Conclusions is a promising album, and a no doubt solid addition to a metalhead’s CD anthology.
