Excelsior! It's the hail of yore that one should go ever onward and upward. And so, fittingly 'Onwards And Downwards' is the occultist Swedish band Alastor's clever call to arms... and also a reflection of our collective dark state of mind these days. "If our last album 'Slave To The Grave' were about death, this record is more about madness," says guitarist Hampus Sandell. "You can look at the whole record as one person's gradual slip into insanity. An ongoing nightmare without end. It also sums up the state of the world around us as this year has clearly shown." Alastor is heavy doom rock for the wicked and depraved. Drenched in heavy, distorted darkness and steeped in occult horror that will make your skin crawl and ears cry sweet tears of blood, the band is revitalized in 2021 with meticulously crafted songs and new drummer Jim Nordström bringing a hard-hitting and precise energy.

Also available: (COL) ONWARDS AND DOWNWARDS (LP), ONWARDS AND DOWNWARDS (CD).
