Atrey – Relict
The name is Atrey and he is not to taken lightly.
The Prague Native says in his biography that his music is a “natural defense mechanism”, and we believe him. In this age of drowning in information and starving for knowledge, this album “Relict” is like a harbinger of that very phenomenon. Our eyes focus on the raven next to the hooded figure on the album cover and think of the mythology of the winged creature. They are associated with Apollo, the god of prophecy, they are thought as an arbitrator between birth and death and that brings us back to the Artist’s Motive in this album. Is he making a prophetic claim, or is he reacting to this world. It’s up to you, the listener to figure that out.
