Everybody has their preferences when it comes to their metal. Maybe you’re a doom guy. Or grind. Or death. Or even one of those super weirdos who exclusively listens to a single metal band. And they’re out there. But what’s the best is when a band can mesh and incorporate numerous sounds into a single unified voice. Take a dash of doom’s guitar tone with death’s drums, blackened vocals, and a little post-metal songwriting, and you’ve got yourself a healthy serving of Barren Altar.
