ATER is an enigmatic band that was born in Santiago, Chile in 2010, out of the mind of Fernando Bühring @fernando.ater. Originally named ¨Aeons Collide¨ to later be re-named ¨ATER¨ in 2013. The original lineup featured drummer Matias Acuña, currently of Follakzoid and guitarist Yeray Santos. ATER went on to become an international band lead by founding member, Chilean multi-instrumentalist Fernando ¨Feroz¨ Bühring.

Since ATER´s inception, Feroz began writing and collecting riffs, and after several years of experimentation, ATER’s debut album “Eternal Gray Spiral” was conceived. Written and produced by Feroz in his home studio in Santiago, he then relocated to Los Angeles, California, where the mix was finished and finally, the album was self-released in January 2018. Despite pretty much not promoting the album, for not knowing any better, “Eternal Gray Spiral” still got some traction and has engaged with very passionate fans and by now has been streamed over 200.000 times (Spotify)
