European Premiere (Spanish):
Dark Descent Records will release When All Hope Fades on CD, cassette and digital on February 16. Vinyl treatment coming through Me Saco Un Ojo Records. Pre-orders are available through the Dark Descent Store and Bandcamp.
With a certain maturity and poise, a sense of deep-set 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.
Dark Descent Records premiered album track „Matter Lost in Time“ on the label’s most recent digital sampler. The nearly 11-minute exploration of doom-laden death metal immediately caught the attention of the press, including No Clean Singing, who described the song as „…spellbinding, in a chilling and disconcerting way – haunting, bleak, and heavy, with tendrils of uneasy but seductive melody that glide like serpents, seeping poison.“ Stream the track HERE.
„A thoughtful, brooding death/doom record from a band that is far more interested in finding the new somber rhythms of death metal without losing sight of the genre entirely.“
– Grizzly Butts
„Ataraxy absolutely nails an atmosphere that few bands can create. It is a chilling feel caused by dissonant riffs (both distorted and otherwise).“
– Skull Fracturing Metal
