Portland, Ore., sludge merchants Lord Dying are about to release their sophomore album, 'Poisoned Altars.' The record won't hit shelves until Jan. 27, but we've got the full album streaming right now!

Formed in 2010, Lord Dying turned heads in 2013 with their debut album, 'Summon the Faithless.' Sludge metal and its various fusions have been gaining more traction lately, as proven by the continued success of Down, Crowbar, Corrosion of Conformity, Melvins, Kylesa and others.

With 'Poisoned Alters,' Lord Dying may join the ranks of those celebrated acts. 'Poisoned Altars' is a fruitful listen that reminds us of the riff-heavy and aggressively swampy attack of High on Fire.

Regarding the stream, Lord Dying say, "We are extremely proud and excited to unleash this beast of an album, so crank it up and bang your head! See you on the road!"

Lord Dying will be headlining a few U.S. dates before hitting the road with Anvil. Check out the full list of dates below.

Do yourself a favor and immerse yourself in Lord Dying's 'Poisoned Altars.' To buy a copy of the album, head over to iTunes or the band's page at Relapse Records.
