Altars To Turn Blood

by Larman Clamor

supported by


It's like gospel music... but evil. It's bluesy, it's haunting, it's rockin'!
Larman Clamor's second album "Altars To Turn Blood" takes off where the first s/t one left, diving even deeper into the lo-fi, hand-made Drone Blues, weaving it with psyched out, weird elements like Dark Americana chants and Native American percussion, creating an almost Western-like dark atmosphere.
For fans of R.L. Burnside, Tom Waits, Left Lane Cruiser, ZZ Top, Iron Butterfly and Earth.

The CD version comes in a high-quality mini-gatefold sleeve and includes a transparent outdoor bumper-sticker.


"It gives me the feeling of sitting in front of an old illegal distillery somewhere in the Okefenokee Swamp and I'm starting to hallucinate due to the strong booze."

"Altars To Turn Blood was an album I enjoyed immensly in the limited time I’ve had it. I liked how it could be dark and droney but yet uplifting at times."

Massive song-by-song review from THE OBELISK:
"Like Wovenhand or Earth, Larman Clamor proves to have an appeal beyond that which their sound might most superficially present."
