Formed in the cold, harsh winter of 2012 over a common disdain for mankind, Atragon worship at the altar of the riff. They desire only to bring about your doom through the powers of distortion, tube amplification & heathen ritual.
Slow fuzzed out doom metal from the vaulted crypts below Edinburgh. Volume 1 is now available to buy through Witch Hunter Records.
We've shared the stage with Cauldron, Korpse, Serpent Venom, Black Magician, Zillah, Bisongrass, Buried Sleeper, Sufferinfuck, Evil Blood, Nerrus Kor, Black Talon, Toledo Steel, Roll On Three, Headless Kross, Maelstrom & many more great bands. Plans for 2013 include a short UK tour, support slots with Grand Magus & Bongripper, the North of the Wall festival in Glasgow & some very exciting gigs around Scotland.
Their brilliant new release - Volume 1 - 2 tracks and 24 minute of pure unwanted mayhem and destruction which ozzes layers of fuzz and sludge to knock you the fuck out. - The Sludgelord
An ambitious start (both songs clock in at over ten minutes each) for a new band, but Atragon pull it off with aplomb and I for one cannot wait to see them live. Let's hope they have been crafting and honing their doomiest grimaces. - This Is Not A Scene
The two tracks of 'Volume 1' conjure up images of Crowbar jamming with Sabbath, after smoking a giant Electric Wizard spliff. The second, fifteen minute 'Jesus Wept' is a galloper of a doom tune that reaches a slow impasse halfway through and elongates it for all its worth, squeezing every last drop of sweat from lore and listener. - We Must Obey
