Arcana 06:50
Messenger Show yourself Deep your roots plant themselves Further than time itself Unfolding Whispering in my ear Only things I can hear Forever unknowing Unfolding Library Circuitry Loops caught infinity Only you only me Unfolding Unfolding Unfolding Unfolding Mystery hidden deep in the sea Buried underwater effigy There is a message carved onto it Only one human can know of it Only one human can know of it Open ocean Part ways for us all Open ocean Part ways for us all All knowing Arcana Genetic permanence DNA AND palindrome Mirrors speak in parables Offering miracles Unfolding Splice open chromosomes Rewire what we know Binary in revolt Unfolding 46 deep in me 46 let me be Shadow step out of me Unfolding Unfolding Unfolding Unfolding Mystery hidden deep in the sea Buried underwater effigy There is a message carved onto it Only one human can know of it Only one human can know of it Open ocean Part ways for us all Open ocean Part ways for us all All knowing Arcana We are genetic permanence All knowing Arcana

War Altar 08:14
Dissect you one by one So you know How your limbs come apart Drink from the sacred cup Venomous The golden oxen's blood All hail the vexillum Ominous Worship and war in love One eye under the sun Dripping blood Into the preacher's hand Worship The iron fist It punishes All who speak The deadly one under the sun With focused grip Squeezing the life out of you Leaving you dead on the floor The faceless one devours all Explosion leads to release Infection warrants disease Wear the mark of the beast The sacrificial release Tearing through all of you Tearing through all of you Shooting star Tearing through all of you Shooting star War altar Bow down War altar Kiss the crown Infinite vibrations An echo Infinite vibrations An echo War altar Bow down War altar Kiss the crown Multiple dimensions Lost in time Multiple dimensions Lost in time War altar Bow down War altar Kiss the crown Bow down

Cantillate 08:12
I ask won’t you give strength into my hands To wipe away the stains of man Purity of mind and body I ask won’t you give strength into my heart To beat away the faults of man Purity of mind and body I ask won’t you give strength into my mind To transcend all concepts of man Purity of mind and body I ask won’t you give strength into my soul To wake evolution of man Purity of mind and body Purity of mind and body Dark river The beckoning Drown in you Baptism Old Rituals Wash me over Where are you? I hear your voice Calling to me In my head? A Hyperbolic experience? One question If I am me then who are you? Ancient one Restore the souls Of immortals Wash me over Worship Cantillate Last vestiges Relics of minds eye Lost passages Chant that is no longer repeated Sleep deep you beast When will you wake up again? When will you wake up again to evolve us all? When?

about

“Alltar play out a ranging dynamic that only seems to be pushing deeper into itself as it willfully basks in the ethereal.”

theobelisk.net/obelisk/2021/02/12/alltar-ceremony-of-sludge-premiere/

“The five work seamlessly to stir the genre-melding pot, the contents of which contain pinches of Neurosis’ Souls at Zero, Amenra’s Mass series, latter-day Elder, and Cult of Luna.”

“...the vocals soaring and shrieking, the drums pop and crash, the bass rumbles with menace, and the cavernous rhythm guitars are hypnotic.”

“...a progressive, doom-laden masterpiece, which sounds incredible for a live recording.”

“...another fine slab of doom/post-metal...really well performed and mature.”

“Alltar [sic] sound remarkably tight as a unit.”

www.thisnoiseisours.com/2021/01/alltar-live-at-ceremony-of-sludge.html

“...shows a band that can detonate both live and on record in a very passionate and varied way.” (translated from German)

“...the band feels perfect when they need to speed up or slow down in that dark doom atmosphere...” (translated from German)

www.musika.be/2020/11/23/alltar-live-at-ceremony-of-sludge/

“...everything sounds crisp and clear, with enough warmth coming through their amps to make you feel nice and cozy as Caceres sings of doom and decay.”

“...having managed to really capture the power of a live performance in a way that many other bands have been unable to achieve.”
