NEWS: Atlas Pain
What The Oak Left
Release: 10 March 2017
Headbangers into gigantic melodies and folk metal that rocks big time prime time will need to investigate this band from Italy founded in 2013. This is their debut album; it is a triumphant conglomeration of power metal, extreme metal, folk metal, symphonic and epic metal in general, including both extreme and melodic vocals. It's a very exciting and fun album designed for a good time and to make you feel better in bad times. They have two new songs on Facebook and those tracks show what the band is about, but it's important to mention that the whole album keeps up the quality overall. Also, this band really does do it all on the album. They do have something from many subgenres and bring it together as Atlas Pain. They are not some sort of acoustic folky band, by the way; this is an electric band that is all about metal and catchy songs. They are shamelessly melodic, unapologetically metal and relentlessly fun. Just you wait until the summer-beer-drinking-metal-festival people get ahold of this band, Atlas Pain could be huge!
