Hailing from Portland, OR, Atriarch features members of Graves At Sea, Trees, Final Conflict and Get Hustle. Vocalist Lenny Smith describes his Cascadian deathrock ensemble as “a living entity comprised of four parts, offering catharsis through sonic ritual where there is no god, there is no devil; there is an all encompassing force that connects all living things.”

Formed in 2009, Atriarch sought out to combine elements of goth and deathrock while making sure to keep it heavy. On Atriarch’s debut album, Forever the End, the band describes the lyrical themes as having an “aim to tear a hole in the veil that blinds us from our true selves.” When asked to further describe that which fuels his lyrics, Smith states: “We are bombarded with ideals of a superficial shallow lifestyle, in which we are enslaved to maintain. Greed corruption fear and hate is the true face of this Self Serving way of life that we have come to call normal. Lose yourself inside the ritual and the veil will come crashing down around us all. ”
