Spain’s ATARAXY are set to return next year with the release of When All Hope Fades.

The album comes on the heels of the 2016 “The Festival / The Tomb” single and marks the band’s first full-length since Revelations of the Ethereal (2012).

Dark Descent Records premiered album track “Matter Lost in Time” on the label’s most recent digital sampler. The nearly 11-minute exploration of doom-laden death metal immediately caught the attention of the press, including No Clean Singing, who described the song as “…spellbinding, in a chilling and disconcerting way – haunting, bleak and heavy, with tendrils of uneasy but seductive melody that glide like serpents, seeping poison.”

Stream the track HERE or below:

Dark Descent Records will release When All Hope Fades on CD, cassette and digital on February 16. Vinyl treatment coming through Me Saco Un Ojo Records.

With a certain maturity and poise, a sense of deep-set misery almost pushes the record into death-doom territory. Almost…but not quite. The sound remains tensely energetic, albeit with a sense of space, time and songcraft which is more impressive than ever.

Gruesomely textured wraith-like melodies intertwine monstrously hammering double-bass rhythms, the delicate interplay of guitar harmonies threading a perfect line between devious subtlety and straight-ahead bludgeon.

Perhaps above all else, the gasping tortured vocals imbue a horrific terror upon the listener. It is the sum of all parts which so masterfully elevate Ataraxy above their peers. Few others have scaled such heights; in this timeless classic we witness a band enter the pantheon of Death Metal royalty.
