Dark Descent Records proudly presents the second full-length of Spanish Death Metallers ATARAXY!
With a certain maturity and poise, a sense of deepset misery almost pushes the record into death-doom territory. Almost...but not quite. The sound remains tensely energetic, albeit with a sense of space, time and songcraft which is more impressive than ever. Gruesomely textured wraith-like melodies intertwine monstrously hammering double-bass rhythms, the delicate interplay of guitar harmonies threading a perfect line between devious subtlety and straight-ahead bludgeon. Perhaps above all else, the gasping tortured vocals imbue a horrific terror upon the listener. It is the sum of all parts which so masterfully elevate ATARAXY above their peers. Few others have scaled such heights; in this timeless classic we witness a band enter the pantheon of death metal royalty.
