The much-talked-about - in metal circles anyway - collaborative album by Sunn 0))) and Boris (pictured) is to be released on the most appropriate of days - Halloween.
Altar will see the light of day - and immediately recoil, one assumes - on October 31 Stateside; we think it'll be out here in Blighty a day earlier, but don't hold us to that. Southern Lord is the predicatable label on the sleeve.
The album - a six-tracker on CD - features a wealth of guest contributors: Kim Thayil of Soundgarden makes an appearance, as do Joe Preston (High On Fire) and Dylan Carlson (Earth). You'll have to buy the vinyl version to hear Carlson, though - he plays on the vinyl-only bonus track 'Her Lips Were Wet With Venom'.
Here's a tracklisting for you...
3 'The Sinking Belle (Blue Sheep)'
4 'Akuma No Kuma'
5 'Fried Eagle Mind'
6 'Blood Swamp'
