BLOOD HARVEST RECORDS is proud to present ATAVISMA's debut EP, On the Ruins of a Fallen Empire, on 7" vinyl format. Hailing from the fertile French death metal scene, ATAVISMA create a doomed-out and disorienting sound. Foregoing obtuse murkiness whilst retaining a grave-crushing heaviness, utilizing structures that flit between the linear and the labyrinthine, and always locating the deepest bowels of disgusting DOOM, this quartet are not an easy one to pigeonhole - but let it be known that they're entirely and truly DEATH METAL to the rotten core. To date, ATAVISMA have released a demo and a split 7", and the two songs that comprise On the Ruins of a Fallen Empire yet add lengthy excursions into a still-blooming and bound-to-be-bountiful crypt of darkness 'n' dread.
Black vinyl – 150 copies.
Clear vinyl – 75 copies.
Grey vinyl – 75 copies.
Grey/Black Marble – 50 copies. (Only available directly from Blood Harvest web-shop & the bands).

Bloody hell this is astounding! I'm very much a fan of Blood Incantation but at the time of buying this was unaware they share practically the same members. Not at all Blood Incantation II this is a much more doomy outing with long, dark passages of music. Very atmospheric and great to listen to as a whole album it demands time and patience for it's majesty to unfold.
Having said that, they go all out death metal at some points which makes for a very interesting piece of work.
Bravo folks! Neil Grace
