Ataraxy To Release New Album 'Where All Hope Fades'; New Song Available For Streaming


Spanish death metal act Ataraxy is set to return next year with the release of the new album "When All Hope Fades." Dark Descent Records will release the album as a CD, cassette and digital download on February 16, 2018. Vinyl treatment will be coming through Me Saco Un Ojo Records.

The album comes on the heels of the 2016 "The Festival/The Tomb" single and marks the band's first full-length since "Revelations of the Ethereal" (2012).

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 can be heard in the player above.

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 songwriting 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 its peers. Few others have scaled such heights; in this timeless classic we witness a band enter the pantheon of death metal royalty.
