ATRIUM - Debut Album Out In June, Available For Streaming In Full

Mysterious Colombia based atmospheric black metal one-man act Atrium announced that will release the debut album entitled Ancient Spells via Signal Rex on the 11th of June. Atrium is the sole work of one Magister L., who's a prolific veteran of the underground, most prominently with Mantus. As Atrium, however, he explores his cosmic shadow-self with a poignantly stargazing style of black metal brewed in the ancient '90s.

Ancient Spells is Atrium's bolt-from-the blue debut, and a more engrossing experience one will not find. As Magister L. explains, the record is "a conceptual album that follows some lucid and not-lucid dreams I had some time ago. The lyrics on this album mainly talk about oníric, cosmic trips, Hyperborea, and an old kingdom I saw in my former dreams and its king. The music also is very inspired by nature because this music is made far from urban."

Ancient Spells resides on another realm, so ethereal is its synth-led swell, but that atmosphere reveals myriad truths to those who wish to wander within its widescreen splendour. Fathomless darkness or breathtaking beauty? Unbearable density or liberating space? Decades behind or decades ahead?

Atrium offers no easy answers, only the sharp sword of pure & proud black metal. How will you wield it? Best to explore these Ancient Spells now, for another full-length is already in the works for Signal Rex. The entire album is already available for streaming and you can hear it in the player below.
