Atka (Germany) - Six Pieces Of... 3" CD (2007)
ATKA is the sort of mad, no-borders grind that I cannot help but love. There's dissonance that will appeal to the Damage Digital, Maruta, Crowpath fan + a bellowing groove behind the blastbeat reminiscing of Discordance Axis + unnerving, melodic wing-spreading somewhat akin to Swarrrm, even a part where they sound like a melo-death band that somehow manages not to suck + mathematically merciless deliverance of the whole package. This is original, modern, hellishly urgent grind at its shiniest, surgically precise chaos done absolutely right, no questions asked, like The Inalienable Dreamless deconstructed by Nise Kyuuseishu Domo. Painful, but enjoyably so, it's like asking what's wrong with the world - everything! Everything's wrong, man! Erm...
What's funny is that someone recently mentioned ATKA to me, when Nowak (bass) sent a mail explaining how they have this 3" CD free for download.
"as for band info and stuff, there's really not much to say. atka started in 2005, in 2007 we released this 6song 3"cd, in 2008 we released a 7song split lp/cd with shimetsu from germany. two split 7"s coming up, maybe a full-length album in 2011. band members live in giessen and berlin, germany. hp is www.myspace.com/atkametal"

Oh and, they have a split with Swarrrm coming out.
