Worldwide Deal With Century Media Records Struck By Amulet

Heavy metal was founded in England and still lives in England. London's Amulet quickly gained attention in the underground scene with their demo "Cut The Crap" in 2011. The tape sold out fast as did the 7" version, which is just starting to become a collector's item. After supporting bands like Pagan Altar, Manilla Road and The Sword and playing festivals like Bloodstock (UK), Hell's Pleasure (Germany) and Muskelrock (Sweden), Century Media Records became very interested in Amulet. the label has signed the band to a worldwide deal to "spread the gospel of Heavy Metal." Expect Amulet's debut album to be released sometime in 2014. More information on the release is expected soon.

The band commented: "Amulet want to thank all those who have helped take the band to this point, especially the efforts put in from previous axe slingers and of course the mysterious Hangman. To our fans, thanks for storming the front rows and banging your heads. We are excited for the future, it's time to let Heavy Metal reign supreme!"

Amuelt 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. Guitarist Heathen Steven and bassist Bill Dozer founded the band; they were soon joined by Dave Sherwood on drums and vocalist Jamie Elton, and then they were completed with the addition of lead guitarist Nippy Blackford.

The 5-piece is inspired by the golden-era of Heavy Metal and Hard Rock, but they add a focused and slightly doomy, riff-heavy sound of their own. Fans can expect short songs with catchy vocals, heavy riffs, soaring leads and bone-shaking bass, driven to the limit with pounding drums. A sound that fits somewhere after "classic" Black Sabbath, but before Metallica's scene-defining debut.
