Crust/thrash legende AMEBIX reizdali su Monolith album iz 1987 za diskografsku etiketu Moshpit Tragedy Records. CD donosi devet stvari, a zajedno s coverom može se besplatno downloadati na adresi www.moshpit-tragedy.com.
Comments label founder Rayny Forster: “The final AMEBIX album ‘Monolith’ is now available for download and it looks and sounds great. We are honoured to be working with such an influential band, they’ve been great about the whole thing so offer up a cheers to them for not being afraid to be one of the first really large act to jump on board with us for this. A very nice thing for them to do for their fans as you can pay what you want for the album – but I am urging people to pay what they can for this as the band has never received any payment for this (or most of their other albums) since it was first released 20 years ago. Its all too typical of the record industry but this is the chance for us to help make it right, and give thanks for all the great music and inspiration AMEBIX have given us.”
AMEBIX also recently announced they have reformed for a recording session with drummer Roy Mayorga (STONE SOUR, ex-SOULFY, NAUSEA) and have recorded material to be released with an upcoming DVD overlooking the band’s history and the impact left behind by their legacy. The DVD will include original band interviews and live footage, as well as interviews with Jello Biafra (ex-DEAD KENNEDYS), NEUROSIS, and Max Cavalera (SOULFLY, CAVALERA CONSPIRACY, ex-SEPULTURA). Mayorga, who also produced and mixed the studio tracks, temporarily filled in behind the drumkit for SEPULTURA’s 2006 European tour with IN FLAMES following Igor Cavalera’s absence.
Rob “The Baron” Milller (AMEBIX vocalist/bassist) writes on his myspace: “The DVD is coming together really well, looking over the whole history of the band through interviews, etc. I thought a logical conclusion would be to show how all of us are still creating stuff in our own right, I also wanted to think about showing how strong the songs were, and got the idea to contact Stig about maybe jamming a couple of songs to see how it felt. I also had made contact with Roy so thought I would talk to him about this as Spider (original AMEBIX drummer) has Tinitus and is no longer able to play. I really didnt expect Roy to say ‘yeah, in a heartbeat!’, so that left me in the situation of having to put my money where my mouth was and book flights for everyone to meet up in Ireland last week at the DVD project base, to have a shot at making a video of some of the songs. My thinking was this: if its no good we will be honest and appraise it accordingly, no-one will ever need to know, and at least we had a shot. However, it was absolutely fucking MAD! Ten times better than the original versions: tighter, heavier, stronger. So what the hell to do? We are going to use this footage and tracks for extras on the DVD, probably doing the whole project DIY now, with a website set up for us to sell our own stuff through, trying to put screencaps and footage on there as the project comes along.”
AMEBIX was formed in England during 1978 and are a band that many consider to have started the sub genre crust punk. The band first appeared on the first Crass Records ‘Bullshit Detector’ compilation LP followed by the release of several now highly-regarded releases. Their music was heavily influenced by Motörhead, Black Sabbath, Venom, and early Killing Joke and combined with an ethos and worldview akin to Crass, represented their non-traditional lifestyles. In 1985 the band met Jello Biafra of Dead Kennedys and become the first UK signing to his label, Alternative Tentacles with the release of their ‘Arise’ LP. In 1987 the band signed to Heavy Metal Records for the album ‘Monolith’ though difficulties from the release led to the band eventually splitting. Such notable bands as Sepultura, Neurosis, Napalm Death, and Deviated Instinct have since paid homage to the band.
