Atheist - Piece of Mind

1990 Active Records :: Reviewed by rofreason on 2005-07-01

Hailing from Florida at about the peak of the death metal movement there, Atheist combine aggressive guitar riffs, stop on a dime drumming, and manic jazz stylings to give an album which, if nothing else, will certainly send your adrenaline levels soaring. The opening track sets the pace, with hyperkenetic guitar work, matched almost note for note by drummer Steve Flynn, one of the more original death metal drummers to come upon the scene. Throughout the album there's never a dull moment, although for metal purists, the almost cartoony guitar leads may begin to annoy after a while. As for those who are into technical progressive death along the lines of Cynic, Meshuggah, you won't be disappointed.
