Atheist Elements on Limited Edition Colored LP

Arguably one of the most groundbreaking and influential bands in the metal realm, Atheist combined a death metal attack with virtuosic level of playing. This union would create a style of forward thinking, progressive metal that would soon become the benchmark for many influential metal bands including Death, Cynic and Pestilence among others. 

From their groundbreaking debut Piece of Time (1989), to sophomore full-length and progressive milestone Unquestionable Presence (1991) - through to their adventurous third album Elements (1993), Atheist’s first three albums remain crucial yardsticks by which daring, ambitious, and progressive metal records are measured. Season of Mist is now re-releasing each of Atheist's first three albums on vinyl in strictly limited edition versions of 1000 copies in anticipation of the band's new full-length coming in the fall/winter of 2013!

Elements was once the final chapter in the story of a band many years ahead of its time. Its complex arrangements fused disparate sounds such as delicate jazz, deep funk grooves, Latin rhythms, flamenco guitar stylings, and samba interludes with blistering metal chops to create music that confused as many as it pleased. Once a fitting swansong for the unique entity that Atheist had become, Elements was almost equally regaled and reviled for the ambitious ideas it put into motion. In the years since the band split Elements has been recognized as a crucial piece of Atheist history and a marker for the wider acceptance for heavy, dynamic, progressive metal.
