iTunes Review

Pushing against the limits of the hardcore genre, Altars add fresh musical ideas and a deepened lyrical perspective to their typically ferocious sound on Something More. Fans of the Colorado Springs–based combo know Altars for their blistering guitar-fueled attack and uncompromisingly Christian content. This time, vocalist Canaan Smith leads his comrades in asking hard questions while tossing out some unexpected musical curveballs. Tracks like “Caverns” and “Eternity” contrast harsh singing and blast beats with quieter interludes that only heighten the level of emotional desperation. Choral backing vocals in the title tune and “To Give” lend a sense of gravity and grandeur to the sonic convulsions around them. Something More’s aural boldness is matched with probing lyrics that look for redemption amid human sinfulness. “Question Everything,” “Transparency," and “Revolutions” reflect both a humble brokenness and an unquenchable hunger for spiritual knowledge. Avoiding excess studio polish, Altars leave the rough edges intact on Something More, underscoring the honesty of their collective musical testimony.

Something More

Honestly I don't write reviews. I'm Hardcore/punk fan from way back. I play it, listen to it, and live the genre. Lately I've become totally disinfranchised with the scene that this music industry has produced. Trends sell, bands with no talent get signed, and the message behind the music has lost all meaning in our time. Altars is a gem of a band that has kept it's self untainted from the common practices the music industry has endorsed for years now( notice how organic this album sounds). This band stands for something greater than them, you and I. It gives me hope to still hear a group of musicians not accepting the status quo and deciding to create their own art. Not copying and pasting what sells on the market. After hearing the 2 singles off this album, "Something More" & "Eternity", I decided to buy this album looking for something different. What I recieved was something more.

Job well done Altars... our Heavenly Father be glorified.
