about

Η κυκλοφορία της 5ης μας συλλογής είναι γεγονός. Για την ακρίβεια ο ενικός είναι παραπλανητικός γιατί στην πραγματικότητα έχουμε δυο αδελφές συλλογές με κοινά χαρακτηριστικά, αλλά και σημαντικές διαφορές. Το βασικό στοιχείο που τις συνέχει είναι η φυσική τους υπόσταση, καθώς και για τις δυο για άλλη μια φορά απευθυνθήκαμε σε ονόματα και μπάντες που μας έχουν απασχολήσει εδώ στο ats. Αυτό, όμως, που τις κάνει να ξεχωρίζουν στη συγκεκριμένη περίπτωση είναι η διαφορετική τους μουσική υφή- θα το διαπιστώσετε ακούγοντας τες, οπότε δεν χρειάζεται να μακρηγορήσουμε επ' αυτού.
Από πλευράς μας το ζητούμενο ήταν η αποτύπωση των φετινών μουσικών μας αναζητήσεων. Θεωρούμε ότι ως ένα βαθμό το πετύχαμε. Για αυτό δεν έχουμε παρά να ευχαριστήσουμε πρωτίστως τα ονόματα που μας παραχώρησαν ένα κομμάτι τους- ιδιαιτέρως αυτά που κόσμησαν τις συλλογές αυτές με ένα ακυκλοφόρητο άσμα- αλλά και το μικρό μεν, θερμό δε κύκλο φίλων-αναγνωστ(ρι)ών που μας περιβάλλει και πραγματώνει τον λόγο ύπαρξης του ats... την άμεση επικοινωνία, την ανταλλαγή ιδεών και την εμπλούτιση των εμπειριών μας.



The release of our fifth compilation is now a fact. To be precise, the singular form is misleading - in reality, we have two compilations with similar features, and yet they are significantly different from each other. The basic feature linking them is their actual existence, taking into account that in order to bring them together, we have once again turned to artists and bands we have reviewed at ATS. What really sets each compilation apart is the nature of musical material included in each part - although there is no real need to discuss this at length, since it will become evident when you listen to them yourselves.
Our intention was to provide an overview of our musical explorations for this year - and we believe that we have succeeded in providing just that, at least up to a certain extent. For that reason, we should mainly extend our gratitude to those individuals who offered us one of their compositions, especially those who participated with previously unreleased tracks, offered exclusively for this compilation. Lastly, we can only say thank you to our small, yet devoted circle of friends - readers surrounding us and providing the reason for the existence of ATS... because they are the ones who make direct communication, exchange of ideas and added experience all the more worthwhile.

Track Name: Oh Hiroshima - Ruach
For a second I realize
That I’m holding a hollow dice
And what lies before me doesn't fright
A first sense of a common place
The only wind that illuminates
Folding endlessly before my eyes

https://ohhiroshima.bandcamp.com/
Track Name: Votum - Satellite
The light is weak enough
To let you speak
Ignore the right to fear
You're bound by what you dream
Curiosity
The fruit of a plastic tree

Come closer, I am here
And be my satellite
That's what you are
My sinner
Come closer, I am here
And be my dying light
You're burning down

There's no way out of me
There's one way in
Just trust my eyes, you'll see
My voice, its subtlety
My lips absolve
Is this fake all you need?

Come closer, I am here
And be my satellite
That's what you are
My sinner
Come closer, I am here
And be my dying light
You're burning down

Track Name: Kalpa - Subduction pt.2
Watch the sun die.
Call to nowhere.
Blend in nothing.
Hate the old days.
Fight for new ones.
Grasp the mornings.
Pushed by the speed of light.
Pushed to be great.
But what if I'm not? (What if I'm not?)
Soon my time will come and that's how it is. Just bare it in mind.(Appreciate your life.)

Track Name: Litany - The Rites Of Passage (previously unreleased)
The trench of youngling
Through unseen eyes
Young stout lads are treading

In furnace they flood
T’ absterse their soul
So purity t’ obsign
A new life chapter

A-nothir chaptre

Horns th’t spyll blod
Upon painted walls
Not but an occult token

Young athels dance
Solemn romance
Ceremony o’er speechless woe

The rites of passage
The rites of passage
The rites of doom
A generation calls upon you

Amaranthine earth restores the message
Anguishous Zephyrus inclines his visage
Benign nature that knows no mercy
Unspeakable doom shall rush upon, so let it be

Doom!

The rites of passage
The rites of passage
The rites of doom
A generation calls upon you

Track Name: The Temple - The Blessing
It was a painful day of summer
I was thinking wicked thoughts
My mind was full of hatred
And my emotions were running low

My hands started trembling
And my heart was beating fast
My vision became blurry
And the anger spread like dust

A moment of pure silence
Something blazed in the sky
A lightning split the daylight
And heavy rain burst out

I was in deep frustration
As I was watching to the void
And then a shade approached me
And she told me that I was lost

She said that she could help me
It is my inner self I thought
I watched her apparition
And she had turn into a white dove

Her words made me shiver
As I was watching her flying away
Serenity inundated me
How peaceful I became in the end

Track Name: Ape Cave - Etna
Risen from stone, twin faced conqueror
Forge of gods, timeless captivator
Converging's daughter, life bearer
Destructive fate, massive disintegrator

Messina, Catania
Feeble creations, permitted existence
Fruits of man, fearful hive
Worthless seekers, nearsighted followers

Piercing the clouds, touching the sky
Monstrous mother, brooding flame, stalwart queen
Guardian and executioner
Armored sentinel, voice of strength, billowing beast
Molten mistress, guiding shepherdess
Embodied power, visage of doom, borrowed time

Messina, Catania
Feeble creations, permitted existence
Fruits of man, fearful hive
Worthless seekers, ouroboros ignorance

Pestilent apes, forging fire
Defiled land, seal their fate
Mammalian traitor, leveled land
Fury invoked, liquid flame

Furtive man, atoning stone
Terran vengeance, ashes to come, decided fate
Patient destroyer, holy smiter
Swat the fly, nuisance no more, balance restored

Messina, Catania
Feeble creatures, permitted progress
Fruit of drones, fearful hive
Worthless seekers, eyeless followers

Blackened skies, all hope lost
Dormant no more, mortified creatures
Gaia shivers, silence broken
