So, this news is a month old, but I am looking for any reason to post about Ereb Altor today. I am stoned and listening to “Nifelheim”. More people simply need to appreciate the majestic, vast strength of this band.
The festival announcement update from the Summer Breeze folks recently proclaimed:
All fans of harsh, yet epic sounds are already familiar with our next confirmed band: EREB ALTOR are coming to SUMMER BREEZE 2014!
The Swedes can be considered the legitimate successors of Bathory, because, just as the viking metal pioneers, EREB ALTOR know too well how to perfectly combine snappy melodies with epic song structures. Add to this a bit of ice-cold nordic atmosphere and what you get is a sonic brew that grabs you and won’t let you go. As an example, may we mention their 2013 album ‘Fire Meets Ice’, the title of which is a pretty accurate description of EREB ALTOR’s music, and that belongs in every proper metal collection. Check it out!
Some of the other confirmed acts this year include Alcest, Bodyfarm, Of Mice & Men, Enforcer, Biohazard and too many more to list!
