    “Get more music for your iPod mp3 player and help atheists at the same time!”

    FTFY.

    No Apple for me, thanks.

    Why not just listen to the band Atheist?

    What makes it newsworthy is that proceeds of that album go to the SSA. The fact ‘Words Such As Burn’ is an atheist band is not really the point of the post.

    The music sounds good but I cannot hear the words…which sort of defeats the purpose.
    Perhaps some light guitar?

    Eh, how about just buying an Atheist album and sending an equal amount to the SSA? Atheist is probably _the_ best example of technical, jazz metal in history. If you’re a percussionist or a bassist, especially if you like metal, Unquestionable Presence is a must-have.

    Hell, even if you have any familiarity with reading music, time signatures and a bit of theory, you’d recognize the (interesting and non-harmful) insanity of Atheist’s music. And The Psychic Saw has a bit about a minute and twenty seconds in where the band stays completely together despite myself and a number of my musician friends being utterly unable to find the beat.

    You can own more than one album last I checked. If you don’t like the WSAB stuff, don’t buy it. Some people happen to like it.
