Amon Sethis Writing New Material For Upcoming Album

Amon Sethis has checked in with the following complete band history and announcement about writing new material for an upcoming album:

"It's in June 2007 that Julien TOURNOUD and Raphaël FASCIO meet by chance and give birth to the Âmon-Sethis project. Raphaël, a drummer from Montpellier recently arrived in Grenoble, progressive metal fan, meets 'P'tit-Ju,' singing at that time both in HELLIXXIR, which just published their first studio album at Brennus Music, and in ERATO, cosmopolitan heavy metal cover band of the Grenoble area.

"Keen on bringing life to a musical project fusioning progressive metal, heavy trash and Egyptian sounds, Ptitju wishes to materialize this 8 years-old concept-album. Raphaël gets in touch with Olivier BILLOINT, a guitar player influenced notably by John Petrucci and Yngwie Malmsteen, who seems interested in the project. Ptitju, on his side, proposes to Maurizio COLOMBO, already playing with him in ERATO, the role of bass player in the future project.

"The band ÂMON-SETHIS is working hard to write a concept-album with multiple influences.
In february 2009, Raphaël Fascio leaves the band after the recording of the EP 3 titles « the legend of the seventh dynasty ». He is replaced by Pierre DALBAN who is playing with the band MONKEY BIZNESS and also in NIGHTMARE as the second live drummer.

"The EP, out in october 2009 is very well received by the metal scene. But the band is aware that the big purpose is to out the first part of the saga. AMONSETHIS enters in studio sessions in august 2010 to finally out of it in december 2010.

"Out the 19th of march 2011, the album, that contains 12 songs, is intitled « Part I – The prophecy » and got the contribution of Stephane ALBANESE on keyboards. It receives from the fans and the public an enthusiastic welcome and obtains very positive reviews from the press and specialized medias.

"In spring 2011, Pierre DALBAN decides to quit the band, followed on summer by Maurizio COLOMBO. They are both replace by Thierry DELVAUX and Thierry VENTURA (both ex members of WEIRDLAND) on drums and bass guitar respectively. The band also officially integrates Sofian MEJRI who provided the voices of some characters in both albums.

"In 2012, enhenced with his new stable line up and a growing fame, the band aims at promoting his album in the whole country, and beyond any boundaries, all accross Europe and the entire world, while writing the successor of 'The Prophecy' that will follow the journey through the ages and time on the pursuit of the legend of the seventh dynasty..."
