Norwegian metalcore act ATENA are known for exploring dark and emotional themes in their music, typically accompanied by intense riffs, screaming vocals, and heavy breakdowns. However, their brand new track takes a departure from their usual style, and ATENA slows things down and delivers a stunningly emotive ballad titled ‘Oh My’.

Watch the new video to ‘Oh My’ HERE.

The band states:
“The intention behind the song was to create an emotional soundtrack that captures the sensation of life flashing before your eyes, and we actually drew inspiration from movie trailers.We love the irony in how trailers often end up being better than the movies themselves while also revealing the entire plot. The music tho is usually very good, and we wanted to capture some of that in this new track.”

ATENA have pushed through to become one of the most noteworthy and experimental metalcore acts from Norway, proving that there’s more than black metal that roams in the country. Merging elements from classic metalcore with more urban soundscape, they address issues new generations face today. The new track is mixed and mastered by Swedish producer Henrik Udd (Bring Me TheHorizon, Architects, Imminence).

Over the last few years, ATENA have proven to be at the forefront of Norwegian metalcore scene with their relentless mix of heavy guitars, electronic samples and hip-hop influences. With a deep inspiration from classical composers, hiphop and love for heavy music the band entwine the se elements together with lyrics of darker episodes that occur through life. ATENA’s latest, critically acclaimed album, Drowning Regret & Lungs Filled with Water, earned them international praise. According to Metal Hammer UK, “Atena’s willingness to push boundaries needs to be applauded”, while one of Norway’s biggest newspapers, Dagbladet, praised them for being “something semi-exotic in the Norwegian metal flora.”
