"After two critically beloved records on Seventh Rule and Profound Lore ATRIARCH make their Relapse debut with their finest moment yet. Blending death rock, doom, black metal, punk and psychedelic drone/noise ATRIARCH immediately establish themselves as one of the most creative and compelling heavy-music bands of the 21st century. Imagine Bauhaus as covered by Eyehategod, or Sisters of Mercy filtered through Neurosis, and you start to get the picture of what ATRIARCH has achieved on their new record. Once every few years a band comes along that takes the familiar and creates something wholly new. ATRIARCH have done just that with An Unending Pathway."
