Hailing from a state known for the invention of the electric guitar, the most notorious serial killers, long, ruthless winters and more bars than churches, ATTALLA doesn’t have to look far for inspiration. Starting in late 2012, with roots in punk and hardcore, its members applied their DIY ethos to a style of music that had fueled their earlier endeavors but had yet to be fully harnessed. Drawing influences from Black Sabbath to Black Flag, ATTALLA started writing and forming what has become their debut LP. Recorded on Halloween 2013, this record is the result of months of sonic drudgery and aural abuse. Backed by the support of their local scene, ATTALLA trudges forward, spreading their strain of rock’n’roll to future sufferers of tinnitus.
"....Wave after suffocating wave of dirty rock" - Heavy Planet
"Anyone with a fondness for doom metal should do themselves a favor and check out Attalla" - Ride With The Devil
"Their self-titled debut offers a stirring rawness in the dual guitars that reminds there’s more ways to make an impact tonally than just with volume or fuzz." - The Obelisk
"The dense world of Attalla marries talent with the inexhaustible inspiration coupled with their flawless performance. Offering us a sound full of energy and heavy guts, overflowing with adrenaline on every beat, plunging us into a heady trip down the most enjoyable streets of the old-fashioned doom sound. Excellent." - Phantasmagoria
