Atheist - Sign With Agonia Records


American, legendary, technical, metal pioneers Atheist have signed a worldwide record deal with the European based label, Agonia Records. The band is expected to release a new studio album, the follow-up to 2010's critically acclaimed Jupiter, in mid to late 2018.

Band co-founder & vocalist/songwriter Kelly Shaefer commented: "2018 will mark our 30th year of making records. Atheist will embark on a very important album with an important new label along with a great team behind us, including Extreme Management Group. I feel confident that together, and with their anticipated dedication to bringing Atheist to a new level, the band will be poised for a crushing, new record! We cannot wait to begin this new chapter."

Agonia Records commented: "We're beyond excited to welcome Atheist to our roster. This is a band of extreme talent and bold creativity, a band lauded for their invaluable contribution to the death metal genre. They've been there in the early years and paved the way for countless acts playing progressive/technical death metal nowadays. We feel honoured to help them pave the way for next generations to come."

Loved ''Jupiter''. Eager to listen to new stuff!

Twelve voices were shouting in anger, and they were all alike. The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.

Jupiter was definitely not "critically acclaimed" lol, I and plenty of others were considerably underwhelmed by it. Atheist were one of my favorite death metal bands though when I was first getting into it like 15 - 16, and remain as such. Here's hoping the next effort gets things back on track.

Tell the rambler, the gambler, the back biter
You tell em that God's gonna cut em down
