The Statement

Mass is the opening track on our new upcoming album "Monocle" which is to be released on the 8th of Septemberon Dark Essence Records. The reason for us picking this song for a video was due to the energy and structure of the song; aggressiveness and straight to the point. It also represents the album well, giving you a vibe what´s it all about; a darker side of us and how we´re observing the world around us - this time around through a monologer.

The video was made by Snorre Hovdal and Dispenser Media, who also have made all the videos for Drontheim (a project that Eivind and Rune are in). We knew that he would come up with something special when we decided to work with him. We gave him the song and a few lines about that it should be dark. And we love what he came up with. You could say; "And thats what happens when small boys play with rocks... witches come in many sizes"!

 

The Biography

ATROX is a schizometal band from Trondheim, Norway. The band was originally started in 1988 under the name "Suffocation", but obviously changed this in 1990.
During the first 8 years ATROX recorded several demos and did lots of gigs together with bands like EQUINOX, EDGE OF SANITY, CONCEPTION, WITCHHAMMER and GODSEND.
The music style was epic/death/doom and in 1997 the band released the 7" vinyl "Silence the Echoes" on Danza Ipnotica, and the debut album "Mesmerised" on Head not Found. Both recieved great reviews.

In 1998 ATROX signed with Season of Mist and released "Contentum" in 1999 and "Terrestrials" in 2001.
The music style changed to progressive avant garde metal during these releases.

In 2003, after several lineup changes, ATROX signed with Code666 and released the fourth album "Orgasm". The music style was more progressive, clearly inspired by Meshuggah and The Gathering. "Orgasm" got some of the greatest reviews in the bands history.

In 2004, ATROX' long-time female singer left the band. This resulted in the arrival of Rune Folgerø, whos playful approach to music and melody would change the band forever. The eccentric, Patton-ish vocal style and tonality took ATROX to a new level - and the ability to reach a much broader audience.

In 2008, ATROX re-signed with Season of Mist and releasd the most successful album to date, "Binocular". The reviews were simply outstanding and this led to a substancial number of gigs around Europe.
The music style changed to more groove based schizo-prog metal, with the use of loops, samples and beats as well as organic instruments like hammond organs and accordion.

In 2009, ATROX started working on the follow-up, and after a few years of working on and off, the release is set to 2013! 2013 became 2017 and finally the new album is ready!
