Dead As Truth was recorded and mixed by Greg Wilkinson at Earhammer Studios (Om, Graves At Sea, Vhol) and featuring artwork by Stevie Floyd (Yob, Dark Castle), Dead As Truth sees ATRIARCHventure deeper into the blackened abyss with haunting incantations, exotic drones, and crushing aural experimentations that boldly embrace death’s cold heart. Fragments of post-punk, gothic doom, black metal, sludge, and noise complement the band’s desolate universe and further supplement their most immediate and formidable release to date. ATRIARCH prescribe the order that there is but one truth and that is death.
ATRIARCH will perform this Thursday, March 8th with Mirrors For Psychic Warfare at the Tonic Lounge in Portland, Oregon. The band is also confirmed to play with Will Haven and Witch Mountain on June 23rd at Star Theater PDX also in Portland. Stay tuned for more tour announcements in the near future.

Formed in 2009 in Portland, Oregon, ATRIARCH delivers a unique brand of sonic darkness, pulling influence from classic deathrock and infusing it with their own style of heaviness. Catharsis is their strength, both on record and during their intensely memorable live performances. The band released their first album Forever The End in 2011 on Seventh Rule Recordings which was followed by a split EP with Alaric on 20 Buck Spin and their sophomore full-length Ritual Of Passing on Profound Lore in 2012. In 2014, they signed with Relapse Records and released An Unending Pathway to immense critical acclaim. Their fourth album, Dead As Truth, promises to be even more bleak, hypnotic, and explosive than anything the band has recorded to date.
“Dead As Truth marks another new stage in ATRIARCH‘s evolution. Moodier and more atmospheric than previous releases, it shows the band delving deeper into their gothic side. On a track like ‘Void’… the band dials back harsh guitar buzz in favor of a sparser, bass-forward arrangement, no less tense for its relative lack of metallic aggression. Brimming with self-loathing, vocalist Lenny Smith’s darkly emotive, lyrical delivery ensures the song still feels almost unbearably heavy.” – Invisible Oranges on “Void”
“Darker than dark, and blacker than the blackest black (times infinity), its six tracks provide an ugly,
uncompromising glimpse into the sump of psychic effluent which is the human condition…” – No Clean Singing
“…unhinged and twisted, traveling back from goth to its postpunk roots and coming out the arse end of the foulest sludge you can rub yourself in. Like an alternate history of goth, this is where that road could have led the style to if had taken a few different turns in the past three decades.” – Darkview
“…a bleak, devastatingly nihilistic modern doom metal LP with occasional black metal flourishes…” – Cvlt Nation
