Welcome to the official channel of prog metal & fantasy universe concept band Atom Works from Helsinki, Finland. Our project was formed in 2016 and we are set to announce our members in winter 2017 before our debut album is released in the first half of 2018. Our lineup consists of guitar, bass, synth/keyboard, drums and tenor vocals.
The Brothers Thirst, the 3rd track in a concept set in 1934 India on The Frontier Mail train, is published here from our 2016 demo sessions for our upcoming album (2018) as were all of the album tracks in preparation for the real recording sessions at Stereotype Studios, Sibelius Academy, Saarni Studio and Sound Mind Studios in Helsinki, Finland, which are currently in progress.
The concept is driven by a secret society called Atom Works who have existed for an undetermined age passing their mission and knowledge from generation to generation. They seek to learn and wield the powers of ultra human 'maven' subjects that they have discovered, engaged with or observed amongst the general population for eons. They are concerned by the currently mysterious 'state' who appear to have their own programmes centered around obtaining these abilities.
The concept music and other fantasy chronicles of Atom Works will build from the stories collected by this secret society in their pursuit of knowledge, bargaining and justice in a single fictional universe that we will visit time and again.
Influences include among others Dream Theater, Iron Maiden, Fates Warning, Ayreon, Therion, Jethro Tull and Rush. Our sound veers away from the modern prog metal djent seven string guitar style and instead borrows from earlier styles with the addition of downtuning to standard D.http://atom-works.com
