Atena: Shades Of Black Won't Bring Her Back
Eclectic modern metallers searching for the right spark
Norwegian musicians have always made a proud fact of treading their own path.
On Shades Of Black… Atena have adopted that genre-splicing trait into the world of more contemporary metal. There are, er, shades of everything from tech-death to nu metal present on its nine tracks, and, although Atena are happy to borrow from the formula, they never settle too comfortably in one place.
