Norwegian metalcore act ATENA have returned with their first new single and music video  for ‘Slip Away’. With fast-paced verses, immensely catchy choruses, beautiful build-ups and slamming breakdowns, ‘Slip Away’ has it all.

On the new single, ATENA states:
“Usually, we’re not in control of how any of our songs end up and ‘Slip Away’ is a perfect example of that. While writing it became clear that it was very much about reminiscing the past and the melancholy of those last sunny days in the fall before winter.”

ATENA are putting modern Norwegian metalcore on the map with their relentless mix of heavy guitars, electronic samples and hip-hop influences. Following on from 2020’s Drowning Regret & Lungs Filled With Water album, the four-piece is back with a fresh sound, showing us another side to their music with their new track mixed and mastered by the highly proclaimed Swedish producer Henrik Udd (Bring Me The Horizon, Architects, Dayseeker).

ATENA have pushed through to become one of the most noteworthy metalcore acts from Norway as well as proving there’s more than black metal that roams in the country. With a deep inspiration from hip hop, classical composers, and love for heavy music the band entwine these 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.”
