Altareth

From Gothenburg, Sweden Magnetic Eye Records Since 03/2013

Altareth from Gothenburg, Sweden

ALTARETH take influences from a wide range of contemporary bands such as UNCLE ACID, SLEEP, ELECTRIC WIZARD, WINDHAND, and PALLBEARER, but also from canonical outfits like ST. VITUS, PENTAGRAM, BLACK SABBATH, and their compatriots CANDLEMASS. Swedish metal has clearly left a dark mark as ALTARETH also quote BATHORY, OPETH, and MARDUK as sources of inspiration. Apart from the obvious, the Swedes listen to a wide range of bands including CAPTAIN BEEFHEART, RADIOHEAD, KING CRIMSON, NEIL YOUNG, and GUNS N' ROSES, among many others.

Driven by such eclectic tastes, guitarist Niklas Sörum set out to encounter like minds with whom to create a filthy and massive yet melodic outfit that could energize the scene with much needed fuzzed-out quality down-tuned songs. When he finally found Mats, Sven, Paddy, and Vigfus, ALTARETH were born.
