Attan to release “From Nothing” November 30th, 2015
SHELSMUSIC, the label that brought you debut albums by Black Sheep Wall, Mahumodo, *shels, Admiral Angry, Erlen Meyer, Latitudes, Down I Go and beyond is excited to introduce its newest addition to the familia – ATTAN from Norway and their crushing debut EP “From Nothing”.
Hailing from the far northern border of Norway where, in the band’s own words “there’s nothing but ice and darkness” the group spent just two weekend sessions recording and mixing their debut EP in a barn, in the village of Lunner. Originally intended to help score some shows – the EP found it’s way to shelsmusic HQ where it was a no-brainer, and Love… at first… throat-shredding “bleeeeeeeeeuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurgh!!”
Crushing, doom-laden passages lay nestled in ferocious tracks that rage, from start to finish. Filthy, tortured vocals are offset by brutal backing roars and against a dark, twisted and relentless assault – an overall intensity that brings to mind “Imprint” era Vision of Disorder or the first Will Haven EP – but, this is uniquely ATTAN in all it’s dark and twisted glory – and it’s little surprise the Norwegian 5-piece list the likes of Converge, Emperor, Neurosis, Will Haven and VOD among their influences.
With a reputation for blistering live shows the band has already built a strong following and recently played to packed venues around Norway. ATTAN now have their sights set on booking more shows and festival dates around Europe to coincide with the release of their debut in November – dates TBA shortly.
Shelsmusic is extremely excited to present “From Nothing” in all it’s dark, grittiness on 300 Limited Edition Vinyl copies on November 30, 2015 at www.shelsmusic.com The album will also be available for digital download in all good places.
