Atheist recently released their latest studio album, "Jupiter" (reviewed here), on November 8th via Season of Mist. "Jupiter" is the band's first new record since 1993. Metalunderground.com is now able to bring you the online premiere of the track "Fictitious Glide." You can check it out in the player below, along with opening track "Second To Sun."

Metalunderground.com recently caught up with Atheist frontman Kelly Shaefer, who commented on the album:

If you don’t know the history of the band and the third album comes in then it’s very odd, because it’s very different and Latin influenced. In using a different drummer it wasn’t as fast and brutal, it’s more jazzy and most people in Eastern Europe prefer that record. “Jupiter” is a continuation of our second record “Unquestionable Presence.” It’s really an homage to both the first two albums. It’s easily the most brutal and ferocious album we’ve ever done. It’s the most explosive and has the best songs and our song writing has changed a lot in all that time. Me personally, I’ve had an opportunity to write with a number of different bands and work with producers in the rock world with Neurotica. So my experience bringing that back into Atheist is structure and being able to take chaotic madness of the technical aspect of Atheist and really hone it in and give people something to focus their eyes one. It helps pull it all together. It wasn’t really intentional but it just worked out that way. We’d just sit down and write and whatever happens, happens. That’s how we set our template. I couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out. I hate saying that, because everybody says that. If you are a fan of Atheist you are definitely going to love this record. It’s all over the place, and yet it’s right down the middle.
