The second volume in Necronom IV's series of recordings influenced by Ridley Scott's Alien mythology, "Fire From the Mountain" is a claustrophobic exercise in enormity and dead black space.  A veritable cosmic ocean stretching out forever, unchanging and ancient in its obstinacy.  There is no hope here, only the eternal night and the promise of oblivion as the universe scatters you callously, slowly ripping you apart with a glacial force and a jaded dispassion.
If "Suffocation" was an encapsulation of fear and paranoia then "Fire From the Mountain" is the resignation to defeat, an ushering in of a new dominance that will exist for time immemorial.  Resistance is a dark and fetid dream.  Acquiescence is the only possibility that will not end in immolation.
Altar Of Waste is extremely proud to present this staggeringly monolithic work of dark ambient horror in a DVD package designed and constructed by Cory Strand, in a limited edition of 10 hand-numbered copies.  $10 ppd in the United States, $18 rest of world.
