Unquestionable Presence

Atheist - Unquestionable Presence

Unquestionable Presence is the second album by the death metal band Atheist. It was released in 1991 and added a new sound by using jazz-like harmonies, subtle latin rhythms and unusual time signatures.

Album informationEdit

It is considered a landmark album in the genre of technical death metal.

Bassist Roger Patterson wrote the bass lines for Unquestionable Presence, but was killed in a touring van accident before the recording sessions took place. His work, however, can be heard on the pre-production demos included with the 2005 re-release. Tony Choy was brought in as a replacement to play bass on the album.
