Finnish band ALTAR OF BETELGEUZE sign to Transcending Obscurity Records

We’re always on the lookout for interesting bands across all genres and it is our good fortune to find such bands from all over. Altar of Betelgeuze happen to be our second band from Finland after Sepulchral Curse, and their style of music is extremely refreshing and engrossing.


Transcending Obscurity Records owner Kunal Choksi states, “Altar of Betelgeuze are a respected band and I’m a huge fan of their winding structures and death-laced stoner riffs reminiscent of bands like Korpse, Celestial Season, etc. They’re certainly on to something special here and on their latest album, they’re sounding even more doom metal and progressive. When the band approached me, I just couldn’t say no. They’re the epitome of doom with class that’s tempered with extra heaviness and a sound that’s rooted in death metal originally. I’m excited to work with their new album that’s on the verge of completion.”

Altar of Betelgeuze comment, “We are pleased to start working with Kunal and Transcending Obscurity Records, a label which really has upped the ante lately with its growing and solid roster. We have been working hard on the second album this year. On top of it being a good continuation to our debut CD ‘Darkness Sustains The Silence’, the new album manages to showcase new elements and defines what the band is about. Both vocal styles are well represented and the instrumental work is more refined. The songs are heavy, diverse and dynamic. We are really looking forward to get this one out!”
Altar of Betelgeuze join a label with substantial doom bands signed to it such as Officium Triste (Netherlands), Swampcult (Netherlands), Soothsayer (Ireland), Drug Honkey (US), Algoma (Canada) and The Whorehouse Massacre (Canada).
