Consistency is a trait that is sometimes and, regretfully, often lacking in that hard rock and metal genres these days. Everyone seems to be taking the best bits and pieces from one another without taking it to the next level. Alteras are the exception to the rule.
Their new album titled “Grief” is solid through and through with an eclectic mix of metal, power hooks, hard rock, and solid songwriting designed to captivate the ears and stir the imagination. While definitely staying hard throughout, even, to an extent, on the track “Black Box”, the band gives credence to new music by adding something to their music that most artists tend to overlook which is the ability to grow as an artist.
You try. You fail. You keep trying. You fail. You keep trying. You succeed.
Throughout their career they’ve attained some merit with their first release “Shapeshifter – EP” in 2015. Music videos following the albums release for the song “Heartseeker” brought the band national attention to the album, allowing to to premiere on a variety of press outlets.
Now after gaining traction, a sweet publishing deal, experiencing touring on the road, and newly inked record deal. The band excitedly prepares to release their new album “Grief” this summer. “Grief” is a full-length album dedicated to their fans that was recorded and produced by Nick Ingram at Capital House Studios in Columbus, Ohio. According to Jake Clasen (lead singer) “These songs have gotten us through some of the toughest points in our lives; we hope they can do the same for you!”
