ATHEIST regroup; announce exclusive festival appearances

Seminal technical metal pioneers ATHEIST have regrouped for a run of exclusive live performances.

Guitarist/vocalist Kelly Shaefer has reassembled what is widely considered the bands classic recording lineup (Shaefer, guitarist Rand Burkey, bassist Tony Choy, and drummer Steven Flynn) for two exclusive festival performances; Italy's Evolution Festival and Germany's Wacken Open Air. Shaefer comments, "We're very excited to be able to get back on the stage and play these insane tunes again the proper way with Flynn, Burkey and Choy. It's going to be very exciting and something not to be missed!."

ATHEIST will take part on Evolution Festival (scheduled for July 16 and 17 in Brescia, Italy) and Wacken Open Air (scheduled for August 3-5 in Schleswig Holstein, Germany). These will be the first in a series of exclusive festival performances announced. Shaefer continues, "We would like to make a great festival run this year and expose as many as possible to the music we lived and died for. Many thanks to the Evolution Festival and Wacken for helping to give many people who never got to see ATHEIST live a chance to see us one last time. This is our chance to make the music we worked so hard to create come alive one last time, and we guarantee that it will not disappoint."

ATHEIST has recently had it's wildly-influential catalog (1988's 'Piece of Time', 1993's 'Elements', and the 1991's legendary 'Unquestionable Presence') reissued internationally via Relapse Records. Additionally, "Unquestionable Presence" was recently featured in Decibel magazine as part of its ongoing Hall of Fame feature. The Hall of Fame feature highlights influential and pivotal releases in metal history, and "Unquestionable Presence" will join of ranks of previously profiled classics such as SLAYER's "Reign In Blood", SEPULTURA's "Roots", and AT THE GATES' "Slaughter of the Soul", among others

I'll second that. With as much talent as he has, his later works with the other bands has been extremely disappointing. Hopefully, this "string of festival gigs" will include a trip back here to the states.

How many 'legendary' reunions are we going to have for Wacken? At this rate, Bathory should be added to the roster pretty soon.
(yes, I know)

A new album would be terrible, I just know it.

I just wnat to watch Steve Flynn destroy everyone drums. He is going to make every drummer on the fest look like a bunch of repetitive no-talent fags.

I couldn't stand atheist for the longest time and then something finally clicked and I realized how brilliant Elements is. I've never heard anything like it.

Could somebody give me some more info on what happened to them and what bands they formed on their own. What bands did Kelly try out for that you said were crappy?

What bands sound like Atheist? I've already heard some cynic and im trying to find some watchtower but is there any other band that sounds like atheist?

I'm going to Wacken for sure this year. I'm also hoping this band "I", which has all of the old Immortal members(Abbath included) would reform and play at Wacken, it's rumored.

Americans can either be patient or fly to Wacken, as I'm going to do.

Celtic Frost are also reforming for Wacken, btw.
