ATROX “Monocle”

(Dark Essence)

Battle Helm Rating

I am biased. I really love ATROX. To me they were one of the greatest Norwegian metal bands and one of the weirdest too. But that just added to the loveable factor. And the fact that they were female fronted was a major bonus to me. But that was then and this is now. And from listening to this new album I can tell that they are as weird as the always been but the female has been replaced by a male. I really thought it would change my feelings a bit but it hasn’t. This is still as brilliant as it has always been. And as fucked up as I expect ATROX to be. This is not for all. You gotta be able to sit through more twists and turns than a rollercoaster ride. One session with this album is like then rollercoaster rides in a row. It is that challenging but the reward is thousand fold. I am just gob smacked. Anders Ekdahl
