"The songs are epic and can almost be described as soundscapes, as they incorporate everything from crushing metal riffs to peaceful ambient noise"

The four-piece pummelled out their richly textured brand of post-metal à la Neurosis alongside a plethora of psychedelic visuals and infrequent thunderous roaring vocals to a crowd who was eating out of their hands. - Sarah Kitteringham, Beatroute Magazine (March 1, 2011)

Atomis is an instrumental act boasting influences ranging from Cult of Luna to Russian Circles. First: That’s a hell of a way to grab our attention. Second: If the sum of its parts is any indication, it’s a band that just might have the chops to pull it off. - Mark Teo, FFWD Magazine (November 4, 2010)

When you attend several local shows a month and often return disappointed, it is a real treat when you discover a new band that knocks your socks off. - Sarah Kitteringham, Beatroute Magazine (January 20, 2011)

Writing about subjects such as truck-stop prostitution or animal slaughter creates an undeniable darkness to the music they produce, similar to a sound found in bands like Neurosis or Russian Circles. - Tannis Baradziej, Beatroute Magazine (December 2010)

Bio

Atomis [ATOM-iss] is a post-rock/experimental outfit with a siamese twist. Incorporating elements of sludge and shoegaze, each song is carefully crafted to express concern over the state of our current social norms.

Having played with influential artists such as Devin Townsend or performing distinguished festivals like Noctis Valkyries Metal Festival; they are an instrumental group that relies heavily on visuals in their live show. What's more: they have abandoned the frontman-centric approach to music.

"We've been playing in bands for years, but this is a more experimental avenue to writing music than anything our previous bands ever did," says drummer Nathan Navetto. "ATOMIS doesn’t rely on vocals, but is more or less focused on atmosphere and ambience," says Navetto.

Influences range from bands like Mogwai and Cult of Luna to Sigur Ros and Russian Circle, while fusing elements of shoegaze and post-metal. The band has been writing songs about social issues, aiming to capture the mood associated with darker topics such as truck-stop prostitution and animal abuse. Live visuals enhance the listening experience.

"Visuals allow people to draw themselves into the music through what they're seeing, as well as what they're hearing in hopes of evoking a certain emotion. Our music may be one of the only examples of that in Calgary."
