Elements was once the final chapter in the story of a band many years ahead of its time. Its complex arrangements fused disparate sounds such as delicate jazz, deep funk grooves, latin rhythms, flamenco guitar stylings, and samba interludes with blistering metal chops to create music that confused as many as it pleased. At the time a fitting swansong for the unique entity that ATHEIST had become, Elements was almost equally regaled and reviled for the ambitious ideas it put into motion. In the years since the band split, Elements has been recognized as a crucial piece of ATHEIST history and a marker for the wider acceptance for heavy, dynamic, progressive metal.
