    1. Album Reviews : Atriarch – An Unending Pathway

      Posted on in Album Reviews

      I’ve listened to my fair share of odd music in my day, but very few times have I come across an album that creeps me out as much as the music in the new Atriarch album An Unending Pathway. The black/doom/creep metal (yes I made that up) from Portland, Oregon have released this album through Relapse, their debut on the label but third album in their catalogue. Imagine heading to a funeral but no matter what radio station you turn to all you hear is this deep bellow of a bass guitar. Close your eyes and listen to how ‘Entropy’ begins, it’s like the start of a horror movie in which you realize the funeral you were going to is your own and now you’re stuck in some sort of loop.
