Atlas Volt biography
ATLAS VOLT is an Alternative Indie/Progressive Rock duo based in Malmö, Sweden, & founded in 2012 by Canadian singer-songwriter Philippe LONGCHAMPS and British producer and composer Adam HANSEN-CHAMBERS.
The duo's versatility and eclectic musical tastes are reflected in their songs, which explore many different styles ranging from Progressive Rock to Electro Indie Pop, and from Post Metal to Cinematic...with a touch of World music thrown in for good measure! They strongly believe in creative independence, and set out to offer their fans an uncompromised version of their artistic vision.
They are unsponsored, unsigned and unbound - their music being entirely homemade, and financed with the money they make from their day jobs - the belief being that the only way to create their unique and innovative blend of eclectic musical genres is to keep away from the standardized and prefabricated structures of the music industry. Their only stated ambition is to make great music that they both like, and to offer their fans what they are craving for: authenticity.
The EVENTUALITIES debut EP was released as a digital download and Digipak compact disc on 11 March 2013, and the duo play all the instruments that are featured on it themselves, though they intend eventually to take their music out on the road using session musicians.

The band has released their first full lenght album in 2015 "Memento Mori", a concept album about religion with 17 tracks. This album has a wide range of style of music from grunge, alternative to world music.

Review by Second Life Syndrome

3 stars When a band talks up their own music, I really can't help but get excited. As I am learning, however, the ones that usually talk up their own music are also the ones that are quite unoriginal. Atlas Volt, unfortunately, is one of these bands. They talk about being truly progressive, original, and without limits or boundaries. Anything goes. Yet, I find this EP to very dull and unexciting. In fact, I don't hear any experimentation at all!

Don't get me wrong, this EP is okay. The music consists mainly of acoustic guitar work with a harmonized vox. The first few songs generally do not waver from this: In fact, any two-bit indie rock band could have written the first few songs. However, after that, the last two songs show some promise, especially "Mother Nature's Infanticide". This track showcases about the only experimentation on the EP, and it displays this more in its strange lyrics and weirdness than in any innovation. The rest of the EP? Standard acoustic rock with a little prog twist.

Overall, I wish bands would stop claiming to be the next evolution in prog, and just make great music. This EP is okay, but certainly doesn't even approach the level of innovation that the band claims.

Thanks to andy webb for the artist addition.
