The Wire (p.53) - "[A] more complex and Progressive album, every song rocketing through multiple tricky time signatures and endless variations on already baffling riffs."
Rebounding from the death of its incomparable bassist, Roger Patterson, Atheist plunged ahead and released UNQUESTIONABLE PRESENCE in 1991. Even more complex and exploratory than PIECE OF TIME, UNQUESTIONABLE PRESENCE is considered one of the most influential metal albums of the early 1990s, inspiring artists like Death, Pestilence, Suffocation, and many others. Atheist's sound was enhanced by the addition of bassist Tony Choy (Cynic, Pestilence). The remastered edition features nine bonus tracks from the UNQUESTIONABLE PRESENCE recording sessions (featuring Patterson), along with extensive biographical information.
