Atriarch-Forever the End

Seventh Rule

I wasn't quite sure what to expect when it came time to listen to this four-track release from Portland deathrockers Atriarch. With Buzz Osborne of The Melvins and Decibel Magazine both offering endorsements this debut album has created quite a buzz lately. Forever the End was tracked in Portland with the help of William Holloway before it was mixed and mastered by Greg Wilkinson at Earhammer Studios in Oakland, California. Wilkinson has worked with acts like Ludicra, Asunder and Saviors and on Forever The End he works his magic once more. Forever The End has a thick layer of doom over which Atriach's epic crust metal feels natural. The music is lo-fi and blackened. All at once it is both dreary and enlightening. This album truly is worth the praise. It's ear candy for the chronically doomed.
