Amulet Streaming New Track "Mark Of Evil"

London's Amulet will release full-length debut, "The First," on September 22nd in Europe and October 21st in North America (digital only) via Century Media Records. For a preview of "The First," the album's first single, "Mark Of Evil" can be heard below. Century Media also comments:

"With the brawling street spirit of early 80's metal, Amulet capture the sound of classic metal, but more importantly, they bring the feeling of fist-to-the-chops-and-don't-spill-my-pint grit firmly into the 21st century. Formed in 2010, the group is comprised of friends who met at various shows over the years and realized that they all wanted to make the same powerful and honest music.

"Their demo tape/7", Cut The Crap (2011), sold out quickly, and soon after that, Amulet began supporting bands like Pagan Altar, Manilla Road, and The Sword and playing festivals like Bloodstock (UK), Hell's Pleasure (Germany) and Muskelrock (Sweden).

"On their upcoming effort, The First, fans can expect more of the classic British steel that's found on their highly sought after demo: catchy vocals, heavy riffs, soaring leads and bone-shaking bass, driven to the limit with pounding drums."

The track listing is as follows:

Side 1
1. Evil Cathedral
2. Glint Of The Knife
3. The Gauntlet
4. Bloody Night
5. Heathen Castle
6. The Flight

Side 2
1. Talisman
2. The Sacrifice
3. Mark Of Evil
4. Wicked 'n Cruel
5. Black Candle
6. Trip Forever
7. Nightmare

The CD version of "The First" includes a cover version of Coven's "Wicked Woman" as a bonus track.

There are WAY too many bands trying to "re-invigorate" the old school sound these days. And by "re-invigorate" I mean completely rip off and add nothing.
