Atavist is a five-piece sludge / drone band from Manchester, United Kingdom formed in 2004. As main lyrical themes highlights despair, depression and misanthropy. Incredibly heavy and noisy sludge and doom metal in the vein of Corrupted. The music is not always funeral paced, although it is most of the time, but pure sludgecore sections can also be expected. One of the bands signatures is to name the tracks after their length.
