Unfortunately, I have yet to hear the new, long awaited Atheist album Jupiter. I’m lucky enough to be in a position where I get to hear new music before it comes out for review because of Heavy Blog, and most of the labels are on board except for Season of Mist, label to Heavy Blog favorites such as The Dillinger Escape Plan, Cynic, and Atheist. I tried to remedy this situation by sending my greetings to Season of Mist, but after being directed to North American PR through the friendly French crew, no dice. That sucks, because judging by this new Atheist song, “Second to Sun,” the album would have been greeted with a positive review!
“Second to Sun” is streaming over at Atheist’s website, and I certainly dig it. It’s got enough prog to make me happy, that’s for sure. My man Grover at The Number Of The Blog thought the album was good too, so I’m looking forward to it!
Jupiter is out November 8th on Season of Mist.
