Reformed in 2017 after a ten year hiatus, the UK's most devastating death/doom stalwarts, ATAVIST, triumphantly return in 2020 with a brand new studio album.
Titled III: Absolution, the album will be released via Candlelight Records on 19th June and is the band's third full length, coming almost thirteen years after their highly acclaimed 2007 release, II: Ruined (Profound Lore Records).

III: Absolution comprises four mammoth new tracks of heavy, emotive and atmospheric death/doom metal reminiscent of the ATAVIST's early history, but also incorporating the progression of a band who have grown as musicians and writers over the last decade; in a variety of other extreme metal projects.

Featuring Winterfylleth guitarist and vocalist, C. Naughton, along with bassist S. Ryan, drummer C. Cox and vocalist T. Bradshaw, their creative forces meld once again on III: Absolution. ATAVIST present something otherworldly, unique and sonically powerful on this album; highlighting, even after so long, a band capable of creating uncompromising and essential music that can still rival its peers at the top of the genre.
Guitarist C. Naughton commented: "This is a soundtrack that travels through the depths of human emotion, from losing everything, mourning loss, realising your own mind, right through to finding your way again. Ultimately finding Absolution at the end of that journey. There is no joy here, only relief at the end of an arduous voyage."
