Atrophia Red Sun biography
ATROPHIA RED SUN are a Polish progressive/ melodic death metal act formed in 1994 in Cracow. The band released their debut full-lenght studio album "Painfull Love..." in 1995 through Croon Records. The musical style on the album was doom metal. The bandīs second full-length studio album "Fears" was released in 1997 by Morbid Noizz Productions. The album featured a change in musical style towards progressive/ melodic death metal. The next six years were troubled times for the band in terms of many lineup changes. Both guitarists and the bassist left the band. All three founding members. With new bassist Grzegorz "Felix" Feliks and LUX OCCULTA guitarist Rafal "Kastor" Kastory now handling all guitars ATROPHIA RED SUN released a couple of promo/ demo releases in 2001 and 2002. Drummer Pawel Wegrzyn was replaced by Milosz "Milo" Likowski in 2003. The band released their third full-length studio album "Twisted Logic" in 2003. ATROPHIA RED SUN have refined their brand of progressive/ melodic death metal on this album and itīs generally hailed as their crowning achivement.

ATROPHIA RED SUN split up in April 2005 but keyboard player Piotr Kopec started to assemble a new lineup in November 2005. ATROPHIA RED SUN now plays music without guitars. Thereīs been no new releases since "Twisted Logic" though. Lead vocalist Adrian Kowanek would join Polish death metal act DECAPITATED but since a near fatal tour bus accident in November 2007 ( where DECAPITATED drummer Witold "Vitek" Kieltyka was killed), he has retired from the music scene, unable to continue because of the severe injuries he received as a result of the accident.

The inclusion of ATROPHIA RED SUN to the Prog Archives database was approved by the Progressive Metal Team.

— First review of this album —
3 stars "Fears" is the debut full-length studio album by Polish death metal act Atrophia Red Sun (if you donīt count the "Painfull Love...(1995)" cassette tape as their debut. The album was released through Morbid Noizz Productions in 1997. Itīs worth a mention that Atrophia Red Sun was at that point the home of later Decapitated vocalist Adrian "Covan" Kowanek.

The music on the album is melodic death metal. The band feature six members including a keyboard player (who also handles samples) and therefore the music is rather keyboard heavy and at times very atmospheric. Lead guitar themes also play a big role in the music and I actually think there are quite a few influences from an act like Amorphis in the music albeit without the ethnic/folk influence. To my ears "Fears" features a more futuristic sounding atmosphere. I hear quite a few goth/doom/death influences in the music too and acts like Cemetary and Tiamat come to mind there. The vocals alternate between intelligible growling and other less raw vocal styles.

The band are well playing and the sound production is decent. It could definitely have been stronger and more powerful, but itīs only occasionally a distraction. Itīs definitely the weakest link here though. If the sound production was of better quality I would probably have given a 3.5 star (70%) rating, but as it is now a 3 star (60%) rating will do.
