5.0 out of 5 stars ''Look, Down there in that blackened abyss, do you see it?...'', 24 Nov. 2011
This review is from: An Ache For The Distance (Audio CD)
That's the rule book. At the bottom, in ruins. I'm just going to say it, y'know get it straight. The Atlas Moth are brilliant. I feel it needs to be said for any of you heavy music heads or metal fiends looking for something different, something diverse that side steps the genre trappings of doom or sludge or stoner by being kinda like all of them and not really that much like them at all. Metal has moved forward, it keeps moving forward and evolving. Interesting seeing as most of the best of todays metal seems more concerned with stripping back the layers and getting to the basic nature of man and existence. Regressing if you like.

Well yeah, primordial would be a good description for this band. It's prgressive and unique while retaining the basic raw spirit of all the best metal bands. Primordial doom. You see there you go, a new sub genre just like that. Getting to the point, three guitars, three layers of sound that shimmer and yield to new shapes and forms. The pace is slow, meticulously, carefully slow, planned to an inch of its life. Clean vocals that give a deceptively mainstream edge peel away to dual screams and chanting like blackened hell monks. Seriously, these guys bring it and after several playthroughs it gives more and more. I listen to loads of this doom type stuff, alot of it originating from America as they seem to do it well and these guys are up there with the best. The Atlas Moth are forging a new sound fashioned from the basic tenets of well established styles. Imagine the skill of Cephalic Carnage slowed right down and you'll be somewhere near to it. Best 'metal' album I've heard in a while truly. Plus there's a naked lady on the cover. Bonus.
