Arthritis? Heretic? However you interpret their odd name, one thing about this defunct Montreal quartet is certain: they kick out the weird jams fast and heavy, with strong emphasis on the atonal noodling. Like their countrymen Gorguts, Atheretic have a sharp ear for dynamic disc(h)ord, and their music is a cacophony of pure, unbridled, metallic chaos. Enjoy their two full-length releases, 2001's Adhesion, Aversion... and 2006's Apocalyptic Nature Fury.
