|EREB ALTOR BY HONOUR Limited Reissue Clear Vinyl LP
Growing up with BATHORY’s epic era in their hearts it was inevitable that the music EREB ALTOR were to create was going to be influenced by their house gods. So with BATHORY’s anthems as their spiritual foundation they set out to create an own branch of the so called ”Epic Viking metal” genre. However a few years after the inception of the band it went on hiatus and only after more than a decade Mats and Ragnar decided to breathe new life into their sleeping beauty. A recording was done late 2003 with some of the over ten years old songs (slightly modified). The demo was named “Awakening”. The songs were put online for people to listen and it was also pressed in aprox 100 copies with a color layout. The response was great but nevertheless n proper album was never unleashed, and the years passed...
But in early 2007 Mats and Ragnar heeded the call from the one eyed old man and went into studio Apocalypse in Gävle to record a full-length album, without having a record deal, hoping that someone was willing to release it. Needless to say we at I Hate jumped at the chance, cause this is first class heavy metal, meaningful, epic, heavy, melodic, melancholic and true to the style created by BATHORY, SCALD and DOOMSWORD with elements of CANDLEMASS and ISOLE. Put simply; if you have the slightest affinity for musical grandeur ”By Honour” will put a berserkers grin on your face! We now reissue the album on clear vinyl with an improved cover artwork and layout.
