Atheist is the first single on YUZIMA’s upcoming release by the same name and follow up to the greatly praised ‘BEHEMOTH {insta-album}’.
“Aheist” is very upbeat and Guitar “Pop-hop” oriented, but luricly a bit darker asking the unanswerable questions of faith and life, sort of a modern neo-punk style but non angst driven, sort a Nihilist-Style of song interpetation. The track is very focused, strong urban feel, very “From The Streets” and trend fashionable but not trendy, the artist took time to write a song that is true to the manner and messege.

Twisting lyrics go from the spiritual to the sexual – even positioning the act of ejaculation as a godly a
Media stamped “prince of noize” – YUZIMA continues refining his living room garage sound while flirting with an effect pedal fuzz packed into a clean punk rhythm assault that pushes the plot forward with a tinge of Bob Dylan influenced folk. The full release will be out later this year.
“On “Atheist”, YUZIMA invites you to dance with the demons, angels, activists, evangelists, and more while wrestling questions of deities and doctrines peddled by merchants of hope.” IMPOSE MAG
