about

After two critically beloved records on Seventh Rule and Profound Lore ATRIARCH make their Relapse debut with their finest moment yet. Blending death rock, doom, black metal, punk and psychedelic drone/noise ATRIARCH immediately establish themselves as one of the most creative and compelling heavy-music bands of the 21st century. Imagine Bauhaus as covered by Eyehategod, or Sisters of Mercy filtered through Neurosis, and you start to get the picture of what ATRIARCH has achieved on their new record. Once every few years a band comes along that takes the familiar and creates something wholly new. ATRIARCH have done just that with An Unending Pathway.

Atriarch Portland, Oregon

Atriarch is a living entity comprised of four parts, offering catharsis through sonic ritual. Our aim is to tear a hole in the veil that blinds us from our true selves. We are bombarded with ideals of a superficial shallow lifestyle, that we are enslaved to maintain. ... more

Track Name: Collapse
An endless soul
A dying soul
There is no ending and no beginning
An endless soul
A dying soul
A current rises and falls like the tide
An endless soul
A dying soul
Time is a circle repeating itself
An endless soul
A dying soul
Narrow perceptions that these are our lives
So as we rise from the ashes
Our true selves will emerge
And when the walls start falling down
We pray for the same thing
Collapse
An endless soul
A dying soul
Narrow perceptions that these are our lives
So as we rise from the ashes
Our true selves will emerge
And as walls start falling down
We all pray for the same thing
Ten thousand voices cry out, ten thousand souls released and they are all praying for the same thing
Disciples, praying
Track Name: Revenant
Consecrated, death on hallowed ground

Once returned back to the earth.

There's no damnation, the soul has been released

A funeral pyre ignites, burning so bright.

A light in the the darkness beacons me home.

Chaos is calling, fire burns cold.

A desecration, to disrespect the dead

But dead is dead, rotting away

An empty vestal, it's wounds will never heal

The soul has passed through the window...

Light in the darkness beacons me home.

Chaos is calling, fire burns cold.

See that flesh is just a curse trapped inside

Skin an earthly prison of sin death is freedom

No we cannot escape, death is rebirth

Die and we will be reborn even stronger
Track Name: Bereavement
Sorrow and the process of bereavement

Lost faith, the denial, the deception

Beloved torn asunder and ripped away

Kneel down, hang your head if grief

Sorrow, tears of mourning

Shed in grief, loss

Fading, life through my hands

Strands of time, gone

Life is lost, our perception

A grand divide, opens

Follow, trails of ruin

Into light, darkness

Our denial is a weakness, our fate...

Cut through my skin

And you will not find my soul

What you are looking for is not here

It's a matter of perception

What we can't see is real....

Our perception of the ending

Our denial is a weakness

Sorrow, years of mourning shed in grief
Track Name: Rot
All is quiet through endless night

Final peace in the dark

Born to die endless night

We return to the fold

All you have done had been done before

And will be done again...

Holy sacred we are crucified

passing judgment in our lives

Life is endless for death feeds life

We return to the fold

So when I die bury me here

with no casket or trinkets from life

I'll decompose into the earth

So the cycle is whole

Holy sacred we are crucified

In the passing of light

Holy sacred is blood red skies

Final peace in the dark

Endless cycles of passing time

light from darkness as death feeds life

Born to die in endless time

We return to the fold.

As we rot we feed the earth

As blood is spilled life returns

We give ourselves back to the earth

So the cycle is whole

Holy sacred we are crucified

In the passing of light

Holy sacred is blood red skies

Final peace in the dark

Endless cycles passing time

With strange eons death dies

All is rotting we are born to die

With strange eons death may die...

All you have done has been done before

And will be done again

Born to die endless life...
Track Name: Allfather
Seek, see, rise, fall

Weep, pray, loose faith

Allfather we bid you to rise

Your children have lost their way

Your shadow engulfs us all

It's darkness obscures our flame

We breed, destroy and consume

We rise to fall, the serpent calls

Not created, merely transformed

Not destroyed, merely transformed

The seeker of truth loses faith, in quest of oblivion

The path is now ours to take, unending

The sleeper awakens to see, the dream is forgotten

The two worlds now hidden from sight, subconscious

The father of all is asleep, now we are forgotten

The dreamer that gives us strength, allfather

The serpent is eating its tail, ouroboros rising

This unending path is the world eater

The sleeper awakens

The dream is forgotten

The two worlds are hidden from sight

An unending pathway

Right of passage

In blood

Unknowing

Unseeing

World eater arise
Track Name: Veil
Sacrificial lamb to die

On the altar under the knife

Blood is spilled yet nothing is gained

Offerings made by mortal man

Dead on the altar, I learn to see

This is an illusion, pull back the veil

All we know is a lie

We believe we are going to die

Loose your ego and sense of self

Death is faceless and so am I...

Dead on the altar I learn to see

This is an illusion pull back the veil

No words can express what we don't know

We try to comprehend life without an end

There's no ego, there's no self in the end

no face, no name

You are not you

You are the ending

Nothing
