The 5 members of Madison, WI-based Flat Atom are a group of American heretics, wielding a unique, psychadelic blend of industrial metal, goth, and hardcore as a hammer to pound their message of social and personal responsibility home. Over the course of their debut EP 'Betwixt Four and Six' on Rez8 Records (released in 2002) they take on topics as diverse as unemployment, sexual intimacy, the state of politics in America and morass of interpersonal relationships. Their second 5 song EP, released in February of 2005, shows an enormous progression in sound, style, musicianship and maturity towards songwriting. The typical Flat Atom show is a roller coaster of emotion, tension and release, and catharsis. The arrangement is never static; instead Flat Atom is modular, easily rearranging it's performers and instrumentation to best support the musical needs of the individual works. Expect the unexpected from Flat Atom, and you won't be disappointed.
