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 comes in a high-quality mini-gatefold sleeve and includes a transparent outdoor bumper-sticker.
All songs written and performed by Alexander von Wieding. Album artwork and layout by Alexander von Wieding, too.
Recorded, mixed and mastered at NORTH OF THE STAIRS, Hamburg.

"The atmosphere is nearly all swamp, and Larman Clamor seem to revel in breathing that moist air, rejoicing with Baptist fervor in arrangements of foreboding acoustic guitar, subdued moments leading to bombast, the occasional interjection of distortion, organ, hand-claps and more."
"It’s nice to see Larman Clamor continue their winning formula for music but yet, at the same time, innovate and try something a little different. Some bands try it and it doesn’t work while others try and succeed. Larman Clamor are one of the successful bands. 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. I liked the sound, the ambience and tone throughout the album. Here’s hoping that the band turns out some more tunes likes these sooner rather than later."
