ATER Drop Crushing New Exclusive Drum Playthrough For “EPIPHANY”

You may recall California-based progressive metal band ATER from our exclusive premiere of guitarist Josh Seguin’s playthrough for their track “Duality” from earlier this year. Well, the boys are BACK with a brand-new exclusive playthrough by drummer Stephan Seguin for their track “Epiphany”! If you’re a fan of bands like Meshuggah and Vildhjarta, you are gonna be in for a while ride filled with sick kick drum rhythms, blast beats, and a whole lotta GROOVE. Check it!

About the track and his kit, Stephan had this to say:

“So this kit is obviously HUGE! We’ve been working on building this up for a while, trying to find all the most harmonious pieces possible, and I think we’ve really nailed it. I also love the symmetry I’ve been able to achieve with this setup. As for the music, this is some of the most interesting stuff I’ve ever played, and a worthy challenge as well. With Ater, the goal is pushing the boundaries of speed, technicality, and low frequencies (of the bass/guitar), all while making something that’s still musical, and meaningful. We’ve got some really brutal stuff in the works, so keep an eye out!”
