Staff review by
We're all still alive it seems. There was no apocalypse for us as 2012 came to a close but the year did treat us with a premeditated glimpse of how things may have turned out in its aftermath with this compelling piece of post metal by Atoma.

Leaving the Earth behind and exploring uncharted worlds and all the star systems rarely sounds this decisively passionate. Like kissing the world goodbye with the explosive romanticism of a mushroom cloud, Skylight offers vocal lines and guitar solos that echo the beauty of a nebula, all while letting us travel with them in the warmth of their journey afar. Like a tear with a smile beneath it.

I loved slumber, and Atoma just blows me away every time i listen to it. Skylight is one of those rare albums that really gets me to travel to a world far away and messes with my emotions. 5 years after i bought the album it still has the same strong effect every time, and thats quite rare to happen as strong as with this album, that's why i gave it a 10.

thanks mate,

yes, i did. I bought enshine's albums over bandcamp as soon as they came out!
i just love the "atmospheric progressive melodic death metal" just like atoma, slumber, enshine, Fractal Gates, Sybreed etc.

tho Atoma is really special, somehow makes me "travel further"

Came here today to update my rating from 8 to 9. This album is making me love post rock. This is emotional as fuck.
