Atlas Entity are a duo from Florida that plays a very progressive, technical and melodic mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their self released 2019 album "Beneath the Cosmic Silence" which will be released in June.
Nature orientated soundscapes start off the album along with some acoustic guitars a few seconds later. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic style while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and blast beats are also brought into the faster sections of the songs.
Elements of prog metal can also be heard quite a bit throughout the recording along with the vocals bringing in a mixture of death metal growls and black metal screams. Clean vocals can also be heard in certain sections of the recording while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
At times the music also gets very technical sounding while the riffs also bring in a great amount of melody. A couple of the songs are very long and epic in length and the music also adds in some early Opeth and In Flames influences but done in a more modern style and as the album progresses a small amount of whispered vocals can also be heard. The production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover nature themes.
In my opinion Atlas Entity are a very great sounding melodic, technical and progressive mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this duo. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "In The Shadow of The Mountain Pt. 1" "Visions Of Gold" and "Celestial Noise". 8 out of 10.
