4 stars Atmospheres is a band hailing from Belgium. They have 3 albums under the belt of which this is their self-titled debut, and it's a solid, self-assured album.

These guys seem to have their sound down to a T: they are a technical band, all highly proficient at their instruments, and they make what people are calling atmospheric djent. If you're familiar with djent and spacey ambiences, you more or less know what to expect here. If you're not familiar with djent, then imagine heavily distorted and downtuned guitars playing technical riffs. Nevertheless, rest assured you are in for a surprise as it is not all fast paced riffing and their songs all have lovely melodic passages to go along with the spacey textures.

You'll probably like this if you enjoy Devin Townsend's output or Porcupine Tree from "In Absentia" onward.

The band have uploaded all of their albums to their channel on a very popular video streaming site, so you can listen to them there for free. However, make sure you buy their albums and review them - they deserve a little more attention around these parts!
