(Brooklyn, NY) Ambient, art/grunge rock solo artist The Black Atlas releases his debut EP The Other (Volume I of The Equinox EP series), today. Diffuser.fm raves, "Mixing elements of grunge and art rock with what will soon be considered his signature deep voice, Koronios has created an atmosphere that the listener gets lost in."
After lending his drum skills to various touring artists and appearances at Warped Tour with Testing for Echo, The Black Atlas was formed by Koronios' independent vision in 2013. Drawing on the heaviness of Dredg and Queens of the Stone Age, the vocal baritone of The National and ethereal qualities of Pink Floyd, The Black Atlas' debut EP introduces an introspective concept that examines the initiation of change and how that process can either cripple or evolve a person's state of mind. California-based visual artist and musician Colin Frangicetto (Circa Survive, Psychic Babble) will be completing three cover pieces as conceptual artwork for the EP series.
The Black Atlas will be welcoming The Other with a multi-media inaugural celebration on 11/20 at The Bowery Electric and preparing the second EP for release in early 2015. Stay on the look out for the remaining EP's in The Equinox series and get a taste of The Black Atlas with "The Other."
