Recorded at Morrisound in late 1988 but not released in the US until 1990, Atheist’s Piece Of Time is a landmark opus in the field of tech-metal. Associated with death metal for obvious reasons, Piece Of Time forsakes that format thematically by focusing more on philosophical concerns, an approach reflected in the music which, despite its veneer of brutality, offers a complex construct of experimental metal madness.
