Intro 02:20
Respirer temps Entre les mots Prisonnière de mon cerveau Détachée de touts les réseaux Noyée dans les soucis universaux Il faut détruire Toutes les illusions Et que nous demandons Rétribution Détruisez tout!
Anarchitect 08:53
Levitate into the ground Shut out all sights and sounds Kill all senses in the dark Extinguish the last living spark Perpetrate another realm Ready to be underwhelmed Giving into things beyond Drowning in an endless pond Fade into the wall behind Reject all things defined Question the power of the word Accept that the reality is blurred Levitate into the ground Shut out all sights and sounds Fade into the wall behind Reject all things defined


Those who know the two bands will not be surprised that the four songs, released on the EP ‘Altari’ in the summer of 2023, are not light fare. The almost two-and-a-half-minute contemplative intro, whose gentle waves carry us away into the land of oblivion, is followed by ‘Détruisez Tout!’ : screeching guitars and voices that hang like sirens above the noisy carpet of the massive rhythm section. The instrumental track ‘Anarchitect’ is the longest of the four at almost nine minutes. Doom and noise at the beginning, then segueing into a gently menacing piano melody. Disturbingly beautiful. The EP ends with ‘Levitate into the Ground’. Is this an animal or a machine which(s) breathes heavily here? With his bright, clear voice Dominik Kesseli leads us towards the pompous end.
ALTARI sings of doom, destruction and retribution. It is a powerful work, which was created when the world was in an extraordinary phase. For this very reason, it is also a hopeful work; never have we been closer to the possibility of veritable, long-term change than during the pandemic.
ALTARI marks a sign of friendship – both between the two bands and the Palace St. Gallen, as well as between the two labels: A Tree In A Field and Irascible Records are jointly releasing the EP. A collaboration on many levels.
