The band has gotten back together, and released a new album in 2010, called ''Jupiter''. It's noticeably heavier than their older albums, but other than that, nothing's really changed. They have just started making a 5th album, which they hope to release sometime in 2015.

* LoudnessWar: ''Jupiter'' was a particularly {{egregious}} example of this; while Jason Suecof, who produced it, is notorious for this in general, this is a special case. Word on the street was that he was going for a "raw" production; his idea of one involved horribly inconsistent instrument levels that varied from song to song, leading to such wonderful things as the rhythm guitar track almost completely drowning out the lead. To add insult to injury, the bass, one of the chief elements of Atheist's sound, was almost COMPLETELY inaudible. Oh, and the whole thing was brickwalled to [[Music/{{Metallica}} Death Magnetic]] levels. ''Jupiter'' as a whole was fairly divisive, but one thing that everyone agreed on was that the production was inexcusably awful.

Sadly, Suecof will be producing their upcoming album as well, so we can expect another round of this.

Lyrically, Atheist had little in common with their contemporaries, and anticipated many more contemplative Metal bands. By ''Unquestionable Presence'', their lyrics looked to the future, to ethereal and esoteric imaginings no doubt influenced by marijuana. ''Elements'', on the other hand, focuses on nature, and specifically, on descriptions of various so-called elemental forces, though not limited to traditional ones. In this respect, they are perhaps more similar to ambient Black Metal bands such as WolvesInTheThroneRoom or {{Drudkh}}, which deal quite often with nature, than they are to other Death Metal bands, which focus on gore and brutality far more than natural elements.

* [[ContemptibleCover Contemptible Photo]] - While the covers have aged well, most of the band photos (including the one at the top) are better suited to a GlamMetal band than any death metal band.
