Amos Signs With Roxx Records

Roxx Records is happy to announce the signing of one of the pioneers of the Brazilian underground Christian metal scene, Amos. The label comments:

"Amos was formed in Campo Grande, Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil in the year 1994, in the early years of their career the band featured heavy influences in the doom metal scene. It would not be until 1998 they would release their first demo tape titled 'Confort In Trouble,' even though the quality of this demo was not the best, states the band, it received many nice reviews from various media outlets.

"After the release of the demo and a few lineup changes Amos would start to finally compose some new material. By 1999 the band would release their second effort entitled 'Gothic Soul' which was of far better quality then that original demo. By this time the band had dropped the heavy doom sound and were now more heavily influenced by straight up heavy metal, still with a tinge of a gothic sound all the while still trying to maintain some of that original doom influence. This new CD was heavily praised in Brazil, and was soon released in the US and Europe with a great reception all over the world. Unfortunately it would not be quite enough to get the band more exposure or allow them to tour and expand all over the world.

"It would not be until 2005 the band would remaster and reissue the now out of print album 'Gothic Soul' and include 3 previously unreleased bonus tracks. But that was just meant to be something to hold the fans over because 2005 would also catch the attention of US label Bombworks Records who would sign the band and release the band’s brand new and second full length release entitled 'A Matter of Time.'

Column

Sunday Old School: Kryptos

Throughout the history of the Sunday Old School column, we've visited and explored more places than Dora (you thought you'd escape your child's favourite TV show on a metal website? No such luck.) We've looked at such South American bands as Korzus and Pentagram from Brazil and Chile respectively, as well as Eastern European bands as Aria (Russia) and Gordi (Serbia,) in addition to Asian groups as Crash from South Korea and Japan's Sigh, Loudness and Church Of Misery.

In between Eastern Europe and the far East however, we of course have other side of Asia, of which the most populated country is the fascinating land of India. Despite a strong religious presence in the country from Hindus, Sikhs and Catholics, the latter of which caused the Slayer album "Christ Illusion" to stop being sold in the country, heavy metal is alive and well there. They have a number of solid metal publications and more bands are performing there than ever, while the underground Indian metal scene continues to grow, with perhaps the most prominent name in the scene being today's featured band, Kryptos.

Kryptos were formed in 1998 in the city of Bangalore, the capital of the Karnataka state. The original lineup consisted of vocalist and bass player Ganesh Krishnaswamy, guitarist Nolan Lewis and drummer Ching Len. They took influence from some of the biggest names in classic heavy metal such as Black Sabbath and Judas Priest, as well as cult favourites like Mercyful Fate and Candlemass and took their moniker from the Latin word "Cruptus," meaning a burial site underneath a church.
