EMBRACE THE COLD
ATLAS is a Finnish metal band inspired by Finnish mythology and poetry combined with dark soundscapes and modern metal production. Lyrically and thematically the band explores themes of death, healing, rebirth, and faith.
"This (UKKO album) is our way of honoring those we've loved and lost. Heavy looping rhythms, huge percussions, haunting atmospheres, dark soundscapes, and ominous melodies create an album that celebrates northern spirits. UKKO is a blend of something ancient combined with a cold and harsh perspective of these stray modern days. You could say that the album is a sacrifice to the old Finnish pagan gods."
