The _Altar? album is NOT a split album. _Altar? is a collaboration album between SUNN O))) and boris that is a result of both bands conceptualizing, writing and recording the album together as one entity. Both groups have stepped outside their previous sounds and created a wholly unique album that stands on its own unique ground. There are elements of each groups trademark sound within the album but true to each groups progressive and experimental aspects, _Altar? moves into a completely new dimension.
The tones, emotions, and energy that lurks within Altar is beautifully ominous. It is a very bold statement from both artists that will not only appease the present cult following but brazenly induct new devotees.
