Psychedelic metal trio Hounskull deliver driving rhythms and a fuzz-fueled sound in their new single »Altær«. The track offers a further glimpse into their upcoming album The Faces of Evil due to be released later in 2023.
The band comments: “»Altær« was one of the first song written for the album. We had the idea to do a series of songs under the concept of control alt delete, »Altær« being Alt while the other songs you’ll hear when the album drops. Lyrically the song is about the hero of our story standing at an altar utilizing the powers from the characters they met through out the album and altering their physical and mental state to combat the big bad evil guy of our story, hence the use of the ‘æ’ in the song name to represent the physical altar and the altering of the character.”
Hounskull emerged in its full form in 2016, with an early incarnation of the band existing since 2012. The trio draw from a wide array of musical influences including the likes of Slough Feg, Brocas Helm and Black Sabbath to name a few. Striving to push their creativity to produce a unique twist with their music, Hounskull take inspiration from video games, RPGs and card games. The forthcoming album sees references to the likes of Magic The Gathering and D&D, for example, hidden within. During their career Hounskull have opened for the likes of Alien Weaponry and Graveyard.
