LP Review: 'Atala' by Atala

Atala's form of stoner rock has definitely fallen on the heavier side of the musical spectrum, and this, their debut release is a scatter-shot collection of different styles which hone in on a strong, overriding mood akin at times to Tool with the assertive desert rock like pace of Kyuss. It pays off. 'Broken Glass' is a pummeling, riff-charge of a track that opens the album with a screeching - if somewhat restrained guitar solo - before 'Cuts Run Deep' settles into the aggressive groove that defines the band's sound. 'Seas of Fear' trudges along at a doom-like pace, providing an instrumental release from the tortured vocals attacking from all channels. The most surprising addition to the Atala is the ability to redefine their sound track-to-track, as 'Labyrinth of the Mind' is testament to with its Black Sabbath-esque riffs and t solid guitar work.
Atala are impossible to nail down and this impressively enjoyable.
