Atheist Unquestionable Presence on Limited Edition Transparent Yellow 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!
Atheist's sophomore record, Unquestionable Presence, is what metal legend is made of. Written in large part by deceased bassist Roger Patterson, the 7-song set is classic heavy metal interwoven with jazz and a highly articulated melodic sense to create music of timeless brilliance. Upon its initial release in 1991 it emerged as the most important technical metal records of its time, and remains essential listening to this day!
