The word itself, Aterrima, (pronounced A-terre-eh-mah) references the darkest shade of black imaginable, with which unparalleled affliction, sorrow, and pain is frequently associated. Our world and way of life won’t last forever. But our work as Earth’s Stewards is to invoke Nature’s reign: Destabilize humanities anthropocentric past to ensure a universally connected future.
We believe that a new balance can be achieved, but that it, like the art of playing music itself, requires dynamic vigilance and effortless change. The themes woven into Aterrima’s music are largely centered around the current imbalance between humankind and our natural world. Drawing from metal music’s darkness and complexity, Aterrima’s eclectic, experimental approach to music incorporates near-endless influence and exploration to achieve that balance.
From Boise, Idaho, Aterrima formed in August, 2017. The band is backed by over a decade of music performance, study, composition, and a lifetime of musical appreciation.
