ALTAR OF FLIES »ALTAR OF FLIES« LP iDEAL Recordings 
Track list: A1/HOMECOMING. A2/ENTRAILS. A3. AUDITORY HALLUCINATIONS I. B1/WINTER WILL RETURN. B2. RESONIUM. B3. AUDITORY HALLUCINATIONS III.
All compositions by Mattias Gustafsson: Magnetic tape, field recordings & electronics, recorded to tape 2012-2013.
Altar of Flies is back on iDEAL with this new, untitled album, his first since ”Permanent Cavity” (2010). Mattias Gustafsson’s industrial, Mjölby-style musique concrète is deeply personal and even though the music is often sparse and minimal, it always contains restrained energy explosions and psychic tensions. This, his fifth proper LP (and a long line of nice releases on hot labels like Release The Bats, Järtecknet and A Dear Girl Called Wendy) , is a modern noise master piece. There are tons of great records out there, but few messes with my mind as well as this album. And that is to me, a true sign of quality! - Joachim Nordwall, Gothenburg, August 2014.

It has been very busy here with a few big personal changes lately. I have a new job and a month ago we got two new family members. But now things slowly starting to be normal again.
A new album was recorded over the last year and will be released on iDEAL Recordings 2014. I tried out some new ideas this time and really took my time to recording things and it worked out fantastic. I am really proud how it worked out. Keep your eyes open.

Altar Of Flies-RABBIT HOLE LP out now on Järtecknet!

#19 - Altar of Flies - Rabbit Hole - LP

"During the last couple of years the creation of Mattias Gustafsson, Altar of Flies, has refined his musical skills and emerged as one of the primary forces in the swedish noise community. This is easily notable in last years outputs. Even though the grand quality of his latest works, "Female" and "The Violent Blow", is unquestionable the musical progression shown at recent live performances is somehow missing. Rabbit Hole filles that gap. A musical expression inspired from early pioneers of concrete music as well as contemporary noise. Strong, passionate and intriguing music with a great dose of musical integrity.
 
Released in 200 copies.”

Boomkat product review for:
altar of flies -  The Violent Blow

"Minimal yet dense, abrasive noise melding tape loops, field recordings and knackered machinery at the hands of Mjölby, Sweden’s finest, Altar Of Flies. ‘The Violent Blow’ is a crushingly heavy sound intent on slowly burying you up to the ears in rubbled rhythms and petrified, stunted synth tones. There are five tracks, or songs if you want, scrabbling at the intersection of analogue machine abuse and rubbled concrète texture with seemingly calloused hands and gristly bits of nail hanging from the fingertips. They range in turn from the furnace blast dynamics and demolished rhythms of the title track thru the quarried chamber dubnoise of ‘Crumbling Tones (For Turid & Thunder)’ and into the submergence of ‘Hollow’ to a the torrid inferno ‘Aeration / Black River’ and the mighty closing statement - practically worth the admission alone - ‘Under Tension’, staggering from blistered distortion and bruising bass weight to a chilling passage sounding like Nate Young gone radiophonic. Monster."
