Atheos: Music drawn from Ireland’s haunted wetlands…..

Atheos – Words Of Eroding Worlds

Atheos may refer to: ἄθεος, an Ancient Greek term meaning godless; see history of atheism, in addition AtheOS is an operating system. Much more important Athoes is a real good death metal band.

Atheos is now back with their second album of ancient and arcane death metal – Words Of Eroding Worlds… The music os probably for fans of Immolation, Incantation, Morbid Angel and Graveyard Dirt. The track Embers Obscure The Sun,

Music drawn from Ireland’s haunted wetlands, clawing its way up through the mud of centuries into the muted light of a mist-shrouded dawn. The sound of a world forgotten, of myths and monsters sealed in peat, gods and beasts cut from the heart of the earth. Dark, overwhelming power and distorted cadences, bound in old magic’s and words that were true before the sun was born. Summoned from the depths to walk the ghost paths and prey upon the lost, Atheos present the ancient death metal of Words Of Eroding Worlds…

Words Of Eroding Worlds is carved from the foundations laid down by death metal’s founding fathers, but infused with a Celtic magic that twists into beautiful, sinister, terrifying forms. There is an aura of nightmares that hangs over writhing songs like Embers Obscure The Sun, the riffs slipping from the expected paths, sliding into colder waters and hungry swamps where the Aughisky dwell. The track Ruins Monarch,

The Parchminer reaches back to the spirit of bardic tradition, before dragging the listeners gathered round the fire face-first into the flames. Rarely does a death metal album capture such a sense of place and tradition, exude such captivating atmosphere and stand so proudly, fiercely alone. Words Of Eroding Worlds will stay with you, haunt you, cling to your skin like the cold touch of sight stealing fog. Stray from the path in this sea of monstrous, lurching riffs and you’ll be lost forever.

Seven years have passed since Atheos’ debut album, The Human Burden was released, but they have not been idle in that time. Words Of Eroding Worlds shows stunning development from its predecessor – from sorcerer’s apprentices to lords of dark magic – and the band have signed with exciting new label, Niflhel Records, who will release their tome of secrets and horrors on October 27th. Not only a magnificent addition to the proud annals of Irish metal history, Words Of Eroding Worlds will speak to the hearts of all those who truly understand the essence of arcane death metal. This is an irresistible summoning to those who know…and a wicked lure to the altars of stone for the unwary and unprepared, who stumble upon its enduring malice.

Line-up: Hick Hughes-Vocals, John Byrne-Guitars, John Loftus-Guitars, Eddie O’Malley-Bass, Wayne Walsh-Drums.


Om Ulf Backstrøm (6832 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
