Atropas is a metal band from Zurich, Switzerland.
Mahmoud Kattan and Philipp Tudor have been writing songs together for a couple of years. After they found bassist Kevin Steiger and drummer Gabriel Moser, the band was initially complete and good to go. Having decided to persue other endeavours, drummer Gabriel Moser decided to leave the band, of course on good terms. A close friend of Mahmoud's, Sandro Chiaramonte, was invited to join the band. After a single week spent in the rehearsal spot, they played their first show in this new line up.
The band has been playing show after show ever since, sharing the stage with bands such as Nile, Skindred, Dreamshade, Mycelia, Visible Soul, In Love Your Mother and many more.
2013 marked the time to record their first album, Azrael, finally released on 21. September 2013.
Heavily influenced by bands like Machine Head, Lamb Of God, Trivium, August Burns Red, Avenged Sevenfold, As I Lay Dying, Periphery and many more, Atropas combine everything into their own distinctive sound.
