Official press release:
Pest Records, the new Loud Rage Music chapter, is proud to announce it has recently agreed with the up and coming Finnish melancholic post metal band Atlases for the release of the band’s debut material, a 5 tracks EP titled Penumbra and scheduled for this Autumn.
Atlases was founded by guitarist Ville-Veikko Laaksonen in 2017, after he parted ways with his previous band Oceanwake. The right lineup was found rather quickly. Based in Pori, Finland the band now consists of five musicians, who have influenced in bands like Apea, Filthy Vermin, Oceanwake, Palekastro Plays Kingston Wall, Sammontakojat, Vuoltee & Sotahuuto.
Atlases‘ music combines metal with atmospheric soundscapes, making the end result sound like modern post metal, as they themselves call it.
