Amalgama Checks In After Final Performance With Update On Band Member Projects

Amalgama has checked in with the following update about what the band members are currently working on with other projects:

"It's been exactly one year since we took the stage at Valentine's in Albany for our final performance as a band. It was a particularly momentous evening chock-filled with heavy music and good friends. It also coincided with the passage of marriage equality in the state of New York with the bill being signed only a few blocks away in downtown Albany. So the whole evening took on a really special vibe for the many people involved.

"Since then a lot of things have happened with the former members of Amalgama. We're not sure if you have a deep longing to know what the boys are up to these days, but we're going to tell you anyway.

"Johnny is fronting the rock n' roll band Hard Soul after taking some time off to write new music and decompress from 6 years of gigging and playing with Amalgama full-time. They've been getting a lot of positive press and favorable reviews around the Capital District and are starting to turn a few heads with their live performances. Their new EP Love Eats the Young is out now on iTunes.

"Ray is playing lead guitar in the mighty Hand of Reckoning. They recently put out a self-titled 5 song EP and have been working on finishing a full length album that should be out very soon. These guys are worth checking out if you're into power metal and Iron Maiden. You can't go wrong with a band that has two lead-guitarists.

"Both Sean and Justin have gone back to school to pursue degrees, audio engineering and business, respectively. Sean is also involved in a side project called Days of the Broken which is pretty heavy; check them out here. We can't see either of these guys becoming the 9-5 drones wearing suits, though. They're just too fucking metal for that.

"Keep it rock n' roll."
