Atom Seed was an English hard rock band, popular in the early 1990s.


Atom Seed were formed in early 1989 by former Zoodoll guitarist Simon James' and bassist Chris Huxter's meeting with singer Paul Cunningham and Iranian drummer, Amir. After recording a demo and playing a handful of gigs, Chris Huxter left in late 1989 to be replaced by Chris Dale on bass. The band toured the UK constantly as headliners and also supporting the likes of Wolfsbane and Red Hot Chili Peppers. Their debut EP was released in early 1990, followed in 1991 by the album Get in Line on FM Revolver Records. Amir was replaced by Jerry Hawkins (formerly of Metal Monkey Machine) on drums before the band's debut European tour. They were signed to London Records for the Dead Happy EP in 1992, but were dropped from the label and split up soon after with an unreleased album shelved.[1]

After parting ways members enjoyed success over the years, most notably Chris Dale performing, recording and writing for Bruce Dickinson. Chris now plays for the British heavy metal band Tank as well as his own pop rock band, Sack Trick.
