On Friday, Ambient doom-rock solo artist The Black Atlas, dropped his latest album Equinox. Equinox is the final installment of a trilogy of EP’s. His previous EP’s The Other and Devils, were heavily influenced by Dredg and Queens of the Stone Age, the vocal baritone of The National and the ethereal qualities of Pink Floyd. With Equinox as the final installment, The Black Artist explores the final stages of a conscious transformation of a troubled mind, bringing the conceptual project to a close.
The songs were written, arranged and performed by Peter Koronios and the artwork was created by Circa Survive’s Colin Frangicetto. The album was produced and recorded by Jesse Clasen (Foreign Air/ex-HRVRD), with guest performances by Jesse Clasen, Ally Hoffman (MTHR), and Ian Hendrickson-Smith (The Roots/Tonight Show Band). In an interview with Prog-sphere.com, Koronios had this to say about his new album:
‘Equinox‘ represents the final stage of transformation that this particular story will tell, touching lyrically on the realization of the necessity of presence, hopefulness, and mental clarity. It’s not meant to be entirely final, since transformation is a recurring process, and all things are in a constant state of flux and repetition, but the door is now open. The character has found their compass, the stage is set for further conscious evolution.“Listen to the title track below:
