After 25 years of declining performance offers, Black Altar has made a significant shift by embracing live gigs. Their first-ever performance occurred last year at the intimate international festival "Darkness over Cumbria" near the Scottish border in England, where they co-headlined.

The band is now facing more significant challenges. They are set to perform at the major German festival "Braincrasher In Hell" this weekend, followed by the "Necromantic Rites" tour across South America with the Swedish band Ofermod in just 10 days. Notably, when Shadow, a key figure in Ofermod, joined forces with Black Altar, he integrated the entire Black Altar lineup into the project, including Les from Hell-Born and former Behemoth member, as live musicians. The studio lineup is known for its association with the Marduk camp.

Following their South American tour in May, Black Altar is scheduled to headline two shows in Portugal alongside Ofermod and Corpus Christii. Shortly after, they will perform at Finland's Steelfest, followed by appearances at the "Under the Black Sun" festival near Berlin and "Forest Fest" in Switzerland. The band's busy schedule continues with a concert in Athens in November and a headlining slot at the three-day "Eradication" festival in Cardiff. Furthermore, a series of concerts with Acherontas and Inferno are in the plans.

You can catch a glimpse of Black Altar's debut performance through amateur footage available online.
