LIFEFORCE RECORDS - WOE PORTRAIT - Atlases "Woe Portrait" is the first result of the cooperation between ATLASES and LIFEFORCE RECORDS. The Finns have further refined their "Modern Post Metal". The term chosen by the musicians refers to the carefully orchestrated clash of rock and metal sounds, which undergo considerable contrasts. The spectrum ranges from MeloDeath to ambient and post-rock up to Shoegaze/Blackgaze hints. Which style elements are used is of secondary importance. ATLASES follow the songs themselves. They are interested in finely shaded arcs of tension and a maximum of dark emotionality. "Woe Portrait" is defined by delicate moods and a special atmosphere that you rather feel than really can grasp. The mixture of calm and brute passages as well as the endeavoured loud-quiet-dynamics create lasting impressions. According to the cliché, people in Finland have a tendency to melancholy. This, of course, can?t be generalized, but at least a spark of truth seems to be there. The rock and metal bands from the Scandinavian country always attract attention with their dark aesthetics. With ATLASES this is no different. After leaving OCEANWAKE, guitarist Ville-Veikko Laaksonen founded the band in 2017, recruited a line-up and started right away. The first EP "Penumbra" was released in the autumn of the same year. At the beginning of 2018, the next single "Atone" followed as well as a vinyl split with Besra - accompanied by tours through Finland and the Baltic States. The first full-length album - "HAAR" - was released in May 2019, and just one and a half years later, "Woe Portrait" already marks the bands? second album.

All New Items on flyvintageandvinyl.com are Priced Below MSRP
and do not reflect our in-store prices and are not necessarily in stock at our physical store.
In fact, most items won’t be because we’re a small, family run business and don’t have space to stock nearly 500,000 new titles.

Separate Shopping Carts for New and Used Items
Because new items available on flyvintageandvinyl.com are fulfilled by our distributor and used items available on used.flyvintageandvinyl.com
(via the “Buy Used” button above) are fulfilled by us at our physical store, they require separate shopping carts and checkout procedures.
It’s a minor inconvenience, but we’ll try to make it worth your while with our selection, ultrasonic-cleaned used records and competitive prices.
Shipping within the U.S. is $5 for the first LP plus 50¢ for each additional LP via USPS Media Mail.

A Note About Pre-Orders
Orders containing both pre-orders and “Available to Order” items from flyvintageandvinyl.com will be shipped in one package when the pre-order title(s) is/are released.

International Orders, Box Sets and Larger Items
may incur an additional shipping fee and we’ll notify you by email before we process your order. Customs forms for international orders are marked as "Merchandise"
and we are not responsible for any additional customs fees when packages arrive at their destination country. Select items aren't allowed to be shipped outside the U.S.
and we’ll issue a refund for these if export restrictions apply. We reserve the right to limit quantities on select items.
