Finnish Post Metal ensemble Atlases are currently working on the final touches for their debut EP, Penumbra, scheduled to be released this Autumn via Pest Records.

Atlases was founded by guitarist Ville-Veikko Laaksonen in 2017, after he parted ways with his previous band Oceanwake. The right lineup was found rather quickly. Based in Pori, Finland the band now consists of five musicians, who have influenced in bands like Apea, Filthy Vermin, Oceanwake, Palekastro Plays Kingston Wall, Sammontakojat, Vuoltee & Sotahuuto.
Atlases´s music combines metal with atmospheric soundscapes, making the end result sound like Modern Post Metal, as they themselves call it.
