It's been just shy of two decades since Floridian technical death metalers Atheist have put out an album. Credited as one of the primary innovators in progressive/technical death metal, the band disappeared shortly after their 1993 release Elements. Atheist takes 70's prog compositions, jazz fusion beats and riffage, a dash of Latin musical elements and ties them all together in a nice death metal package. Back in 1991 this was pretty much unheard of, and because of that Atheist's status as legendary in the history of death metal is entirely non-controversial. Fast forward 17 years and technical death metal has become a very dominate genre with dozens of bands releasing now classic albums to cement the style over the years. What happens when a long dormant band like Atheist decides to make a go at it 17 years after their last release? Can they keep pace and more importantly do they still have it?

In many ways Jupiter jumps back in right where the band left off. First track "Second to Sun" is a fantastic opener with tons of energy and speed, with spiraling chaotic riffs hammering at your ears as soon as the record starts. The frequent employment of jazz and Latin passages lends a dimension to Atheist's music not really found elsewhere in modern tech metal. In fact I can't really think of any recent bands that put out the kind of jazzy progressive death metal found on this album; the bands original sound rings fresh and is for me a major plus. Vocalist Kelly Shaefer has mostly ditched his classic cookie monster style growls, and instead opted for a Chuck Schuldiner inspired sing/scream. Shaefer and Baker's guitar work remains as technical, precise, and jazzy as ever, with riffs that spin circles around your head while you take them in.

I am a fan of Athiest since their second album "Unquestionable Presence" in 1991 and found their first album "Piece of time" a year later...On Jupiter the first track "Second to Sun" starts you off and the last track I actually found funny of sorts "Third Person"( because I went to highschool with a person who spoke in the "Third Person") finishes the album in the right direction with progressive elements found on unquestionable Presence-(nothing specific just the vibe only) I found this album very listenable from start to finish the only gripe is that they laid down only 8 tracks and that didn't seem long enough to me as a comeback album..I found it kind of sad that frontman Kelly Shaefer is no longer playing lead guitars and due to tendenitis and carple tunnel he has to be the vocalist only in the past Shaefer and Burkey were the only twin left handed lead guitarist team around yes thats right!! not only did they invent progressive death metal they were the only dual lefty lead guitarists team around..
Note to buyers....
The Japanese imported version of this album DOES NOT HAVE EXTRA TRACKS!!!! DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!
you only get 8 songs!!! AVALON/MARQUEE replaces SEAON OF MIST and Japanese writing/songlist in parts of the album thats all

This comeback album by the mighty, seminal, death/prog band from Florida, can easily be considered as good, if not better, than their master-piece, "Unquestionable Presence". Atheist come out rocking as hard and as skillfully as they left off, with some neat, unforseen goodies, that make this album a very fun and engaging listen. Since their hiatus lasted about 17 years, and knowing that the state of prog/tech/death is alive and thriving, Atheist didn't come out and try to be the heaviest or fastest band around, but rather do what they do, only better, and much more competently arranged!
The overall sound is still a large dose of thrash, a heap of early 90's Florida death metal, Malmsteinian uber- shredding, Latin influence, and jazz, jazz-fusion all in the guise of a scary as hell, death metal monster! Lyrics focused on religious hypocrisy permeate the format and the vocals are unforgettable! Snarling and rasping diatribes that are truly original sounding! The drumming is f ing awesome! The bass is audible and substantially cool! The guitars are noodly and menacing all at the same time! Some of the goodies on this album are some excellent breakdowns, blast beating, and songs with hooks and choruses, making them distinguishable from one another.
I feel the production is a little thin, a little too thrashy for my taste, that is my only bone to pick and the reason I decided to give four stars, instead of five. Other than that, this should catapult them back into the forefront of prog/tech/death with the likes of Decrepit Birth, Cephalic Carnage, BTBAM, Obscura, and Veil of Maya.

This album is a real treat for Atheist fans. The sound is mostly similar to Piece of Time and Unquestionable Presence, fitting in very well with those first two. I personally also love Elements, but you can tell the team of Shaefer and Flynn is necessary to create the true Atheist sound. After 17 years, I was hopeful but cautious about this album, not wanting to expect too much. But I think their fans will agree that Jupiter meets the high standards set on the first two, exceeding Elements in technicality and urgency. The immediate standout track to me is Faux King Christ, but all eight songs feature the same frantic, epilectic bursts, speed, and fusion from Piece of Time, as well as the occasional death metal gallops of Unquestionable Presence. And I have to say that I'm happy with the bass work of Jonathan Thompson, who follows the tradition of Roger Patterson and Tony Choy admirably. I actually think this is masterpiece number four from Atheist.

Yeah, no crap. All of the reviews are positive, yet somehow none of the reviews are helpful. WTF?

Wait...could it possibly be a Christian? If so, all I can say is, Jesus Faux King Christ!
