Altar Of Plagues Disbands
2013-07-15 by geasoftime | 48 Comments
Altar Of Plagues has announced that the project is to be disbanded on October 19th via Facebook today. The statement reads as follows:

"Altar of Plagues will conclude this year.
I decided before writing
Teethed Glory And Injury that it would be our final album. It was executed with this fact in mind. I can state it no more simply than this; it is time to move on.

We considered whether or not we would say anything at all regarding this. But at the very least, we would like to give people an opportunity to see us perform again should they care to. And so, these upcoming shows will be our final.

Our very final performance will be on October 19th, at Unsound Festival Poland. As a festival that celebrates the eclectic and the eccentric, I can think of no other place that would be more appropriate for this occasion. It is exactly the type of environment in which I have always aspired to share our work, and it will be a celebratory occasion to conclude at what I believe will be the peak of our existence as a group.

I still find it difficult to believe that what began as a bedroom recording in 2007, became a group of individuals that have performed in Moscow, San Francisco, and many places between. We have travelled further, and shared more music than we had ever expected. Thank you to each and every person who supported us.

I will continue to work as WIFE . However, I am not closing the door on the sounds I developed as Altar of Plagues. Many stones remain unturned.

Well this blows. Their latest had some really interesting ideas. Shame we'll never get to see them flesh them out.

This is a serious blow to the contemporary black metal scene. These guys were producing some of the best material around. It's a real shame.

One of the best current black metal bands besides Agalloch, Fen and Deafheaven.
Really sad to read this, but if they feel like it, it is prolly the best for them to do.

In the words of the great and not so late Roddy White, kill yourselves.

I'm assuming he was the brains behind the band? It sounds like he'll release something new down the road that has a similar sound.
