Band Bio­graphy:

Cited by the likes of Sepul­tura, Neur­osis and Devi­ated Instinct and many oth­ers as the ori­ginal mas­ters of the blend­ing of Metal, Punk and Rock, Crust Punk pion­eers Amebix formed in 1978.

Amebix released their second stu­dio album, the mon­s­ter­ours 'Mono­lith' on Heavy Metal Records in 1987 but release and dis­tri­bu­tion dif­fi­culties ended with the band even­tu­ally split­ting. The band did tour briefly after 'Mono­lith' end­ing in Sarejavo.

Fol­low­ing a long hiatus, work­ing on vari­ous other pro­jects Amebix returned to the scene in 2008/2009 with sev­eral sold out gigs in Amer­ica (the first ever Amebix gigs on Amer­ican soil) the band went on to com­plete a 2nd U.S/Canadian Tour along­side European appear­ences. A brand new album titled 'Sonic Mass' was released in 2011 on Easy Action Records which fea­tured in the Top 10 Albums of the year in vari­ous Metal Webz­ines, magazines and lists of fel­low Metal Musi­cians - Most not­ably Corey Taylor (Slipnot and Stone Sour) and Max Cavalera (Sepul­tura, Soulfly, Cavalera Con­spir­acy). The album also made the Top 20 albums of the year in Metal Ham­mer Magazine com­ing it at Num­ber 14.
