HELLS HEADBANGERS is proud to present ATOMIC AGGRESSOR's Invoking the Primal Chaos EP on 12" vinyl format. Pressed on brown/silver swirl vinyl and only 100 copies on black vinyl.
At ground zero of Chile's still-thriving death metal scene, ATOMIC AGGRESSOR had a strong hand in shaping that supreme sound back in the late '80s with 1989's influential Bloody Ceremonial demo and 1991's subsequent Resurrection demo. Prematurely, the band broke up but re-formed in 2007 to play a number of national festivals, proving that the ancient hellfire still burned brightly.
With two founding members at the helm, vocalist/bassist Alejandro Díaz and guitarist Enrique Zúñiga, ATOMIC AGGRESSORreleased a well-received split 7" with Death Yell in 2013, further proving that their barbaric deathrash had lost none of its violence & force. But that split was a mere appetizer for the band's long-awaited debut album, Sights of Suffering, which HELLS HEADBANGERS released to widespread acclaim at the end of 2014. Some 25 years on from their original formation, ATOMIC AGGRESSOR continued where they started in the late '80s, but brimmed with a belligerence and bluster that belied their seemingly advanced age. Indeed, old dogs do old tricks!
And the same can be said for their Invoking the Primal Chaos EP. Originally released in 2019 on CD and cassette in their native Chile, Invoking the Primal Chaos also picks up where its full-length predecessor left off, erasing some five years in the process; indeed, ATOMIC AGGRESSOR's lack of aging makes them some metalized portrait of Dorian Gray! Across these four fiery songs do the quintet explode with the sort of songwriting only those who grew up - and bled - in the 1980s can produce. But, much like Sights of Suffering, you likewise can't call Invoking the Primal Chaos a mere "throwback," for this is THE REAL DEAL: a timeless, iron-fisted thrust of pure death metal evil. If anything, the production's even fuller and the attack even more violent, and the solos here exude a maniacal hysteria that's late '80s to the hilt.
At last on vinyl, ATOMIC AGGRESSOR are again Invoking the Primal Chaos!
