ALTARS OF DESTRUCTION Putting Finishing Touches On New Album

January 27, 2010

Legendary Finnish thrashers ALTARS OF DESTRUCTION are in the studio putting the finishing touches on their new album, "Gallery Of Pain", due later in the year. Several new tracks are currently streaming on the band's MySpace page, including "Children Of Misfortune", "Cross The Line Of No Return", "Suicide Are You Insane?", "Aggression" and "Day Of Judgement".

The "Gallery Of Pain" artwork (see below) was created by Juha Vuorma, who also designed covers for the first three KALMAH albums and for USURPER and METUJA, among others.


Mika Luoma: Vocals
Kimmo Osmo: Guitars
Pasi Osmo: Bass
Jussi Samppala (TYRANT DISCIPLE): Drums

Formed in 1986 by the brothers Kimmo and Pasi Osmo, along with Jukka Sandberg, ALTARS OF DESTRUCTION went through several lineup changes before releasing an EP, "Painful Awakening", in 1989. Due to personal issues, the band split up a short time later. In 2005, ALTARS OF DESTRUCTION regrouped and started writing new songs and reworking old material. Their intention was to "make a couple of new songs and pick out our favourites from the past and make a record that cuts through two decades of metal the way we lived and loved it." Jussi Samppala from TYRANT DISCIPLE also stepped in as the band's new drummer.
