Growing up with Bathory's epic era in their hearts, it comes as no surprise that their music would somewhat flaunt the influence of their house gods.
With the anthems of Bathory as their spiritual foundation, EREB ALTOR set out to find their creative and unique niche within the epic Viking metal genre.
In early 2007 Mats and Ragnar (the doom masters behind ISOLE's dark anthems) heeded the call of the one-eyed elder to enter Apocalypse Studio and record a full-length album.
I Hate Records jumped at the chance to release this first-class Heavy Metal album; entitled “By Honour”, the album comprised 7 long and adventurous tracks to kill for.
The response generated by “By Honour” was overwhelming and inspiring Mats and Ragnar to soon release a followup.“The End”.
Now in 2013, the Swedes have not forgotten their traditional elements: Hypnotic melodies and sweeping parts will be present again on the new Opus ”Fire Meets Ice”.
On this new album, unleashed by Cyclone Empire, EREB ALTOR will summon the norse Gods again and take the best parts from each sound of EREB ALTOR´s history to create a varied masterpiece.
