nidefatt Takes time to enjoy this, slow to digest. Favorite track: The Sea Beyond.
Doomlobbyn thumbnail
Doomlobbyn The Atlas Moth's "post-black meets ambient sludge" sound is very relaxing to listen to. Intricate melodies overlaid with harsh screams interspersed with clean vocal singing this album is a true gem. Favorite track: Collider.

Paul Wood I love the Atlas Moth and was stoked for this album, but this feels like a completely different band. The usual emphasis on raspy, growled vocals, near incoherent "screams from beyond the grave" and spacey, psychedelic riffs are replaced by a new focus on clean vocals, mellow jam riffs and unnatural, mostly forced sounding screamed vocals. There are some good tunes here (better than a lot of bands), but there is no standout "Jump Room to Orion" or "Holes in the Desert" on this one. Favorite track: Blood Will Tell.
Amie  thumbnail
Amie more clean vocals than their last, but heavier and more muscular overall. more emotional (to me) lyrics, esp. The Sea Beyond's musings on death Favorite track: The Sea Beyond.

Chicago, Illinois THE ATLAS MOTH have always been a hard band to fully categorize simply because of the myriad of elements and influences that seamlessly amalgam together to create one of the more distinct sounds in the American heavy music scene today. Over the years through the band’s endless touring jaunts and putting out releases that display the band’s crushingly heavy yet beautiful take on their style of progressive crushing psychedelic metal, THE ATLAS MOTH have made quite the name for themselves.

Now with their third full length album “The Old Believer”, THE ATLAS MOTH are prepared to unleash their most glorious and riveting work yet. An album in which sees the band exceeding all previous efforts in a work which takes the entire ATLAS MOTH musical paradigm and brings it to new levels unparalleled with more advanced and focused songwriting, production, and overall execution and presentation.

Produced by guitarist/keyboardist Andrew Ragin at Chicago’s Wall To Wall Studios and mixed and mastered by Kyle Spence of Harvey Milk/Kurt Vile (in cooperation with Ragin) in Athens Georgia, “The Old Believer” features guest appearances by Gojira vocalist Joe Duplantier (as well as “gang vocals” from the other Gojira members) as well as guest appearances from SUBROSA violinists Kim Pack and Sarah Pendleton. The art and design for “The Old Believer” was created by Invisible Creature (Kendrick Lamar, Foo Fighters, Norma Jean etc.) and features a water-reveal insert where once immersed in water, the album cover changes and morphs into a new image revealing the art that lies beneath the surface.
