AMKEN: Release Split-EP With Peruvian Thrash Metal Band MAZE OF TERROR

Added 27 May 2015, 9:17 AM

 What happens when four crazy fellows join forces in the heart of the Greek metal scene? Blood-pumping, fast-paced bay area thrash combined with that notorious teutonic drive; all under the veil of their debut release, "Adrenaline Shot" EP (30.09.2014).

Winners of the first Top Of the Rocks contest, Amken is spreading the mayhem of their breathtaking performances with numerous live shows around Greece and abroad, including support slots with Skeletonwitch (US), Reactionary (DE), Bio-Cancer (GR) and Six Feet Under (US) in Germany.

In anticipation of their full-length album the quartet is currently working vigorously for a late 2015 / early 2016 release, at the same time celebrating recognition through their feature on METAL HAMMER's CD compilation "Lessons in Violence – The New Greek Thrash Metal Breed" (issue #365).

Amken was formed in September 2011 in Athens, Greece. Like zombies 'n' thrash? Watch their videoclip here: AMKEN - Zombie Pets (OFFICIAL VIDEO) - YouTube
