Playing heavy, yet catchy music with prime influences including Lamb of God, Soilwork, Tool and Slipknot, Canadian anthemic metal band ATRIA will be releasing their debut EP “New World Nightmare” on Friday, November 16th. The debut is just a teaser of what is to be expected from them. Not just sticking with the usual heavy formula of the genre, they also add plenty of synth and orchestral parts and experiment with varying degrees of technicality over four introductory tracks.
Teaming up with MetalInsider.net, the band is premiering the EP’s full stream at the following link: https://www.metalinsider.net/video/exclusive-album-stream-atria-new-world-nightmare-ep
Vocalist Tom Emmans comments:
“New World Nightmare is a play on words about the new world order. It’s about the powerful and corrupt few selling us a dream that could only end in a nightmare. It’s about how instead of acting like greedy little insects, maybe we could all be a little nicer to one another sometimes.”

In additional news, ATRIA have been given the nod to open the Kingston, ON November 24th tour stop of The Metal Alliance Tour featuring Goatwhore, The Casualties, Black Tusk, Great American Ghost and Gozu.
Drummer Matt McGuire adds:
“It is such a privilege and an opportunity as a new band to learn from true professionals. It’s experiences like this that make us better overnight.”

Founded by Tom Emmans (vocals) and Tim Ross (guitar) in August of 2017, ATRIA takes its name from a music venue in a nearby city at which Emmans and Ross played their first gig at with a different band. The experiences had at that place resonated enough to be cemented as the band’s moniker. Eventually they recruited Matt McGuire (drummer), Brent Westmoreland (bass) and Travis McGinnis (guitar) to fill out the lineup and have played a handful of shows and festivals with a great response and are hungry for more. The debut release for the band, New World Nightmare EP, is due November 16th, 2018. Even as a relatively new band, Atria is finding their place in the Canadian underground scene and making their name known amongst a wide variety of metal fans.
