Playing heavy, yet catchy music with prime influences including Lamb of God, Soilwork, Tool and Slipknot, Canadian anthemic metal band ATRIA will be releasing their debut EP “New World Nightmare” on Friday, November 16th. The debut is just a teaser of what is to be expected from them. Not just sticking with the usual heavy formula of the genre, they also add plenty of synth and orchestral parts and experiment with varying degrees of technicality over four introductory tracks.

Vocalist Tom Emmans comments:

“New World Nightmare is a play on words about the new world order. It’s about the powerful and corrupt few selling us a dream that could only end in a nightmare. It’s about how instead of acting like greedy little insects, maybe we could all be a little nicer to one another sometimes.”
