Chicago atmospheric sludge metallers The Atlas Moth have posted a rough demo of a brand-new song from their forthcoming debut album, which is to be entitled, A Glorified Piece Of Blue-Sky. The album will be produced, mixed, and recorded by The Atlas Moth’s bassist, Andrew Ragin, at Phase Recording in Chicago, and post production on the album will be done by Tranquility Bass.

PRAISE FOR THE ‘PRAY FOR TIDES’ EP

The crushingly heavy guitars, coupled with the sometimes epic, sometimes downright dirty vocals make a sound that is immense as it is up close and personal, and raw as it is controlled and clever…The first track alone probably alone demonstrates what this band is about, with some lovely intense and technical guitar lines, and some awesome clean vocals, “Hope For Atlantis” does exactly what an opener should do. Introduce the band’s sound and leave the listener wanting more. – The Metal Observer

It’s a supremely impressive first effort, and leaves me wanting more. Just imagining what this band could be capable of given a studio budget and an album’s worth of material gives me shivers.” - PunkNews.org

“Hails to The Atlas Moth! This is slap your mama up against the wall and eat your biscuits and red-eye gravy swampin’ sludge! A band to look out for, and for sure lock up your daughters!” - The Sludge Swamp

“Hometown sludge warrior the Atlas Moth likes its metal with a heaping dose of doom. Though it allegedly pledges allegiance to the home of electric blues, you’d be hard pressed to hear it over the deafening drawl of drop D guitars.” - Time Out Chicago
