AmosAnon have stomped back onto the scene with a new digital release Darkness from Light. This is a dusky album full of hard-hitting rock songs. The tracks are reminiscent of 90’s, with gravelly undertones of metal and grunge.
This is an album that is not to be taken lightly, as the music here treads heavily. With summer on our doorstep the daylight glow surmounts the dusky hours of the night. And if it is this shade of midnight that you pine for AmosAnon have a free release which is a bottle of the hard, cold night. If it is something arduous and something bleak that you are hunting for, then this might be the precise hit you need.
Spine-chilling vocals are the brooding clouds that loom over this album, literally turning the light into darkness. It is hard to escape the suffocation of the electric guitar. In songs like ‘Reciprocity ’the drumming is incensed through the pounding rhythm. AmosAnon are bold in this effort and there is certitude in this release which is skillful.
It is industrial in its execution, which only makes it all the more rough and hard to swallow. But that is what AmosAnon are trying to get at with Darkness from Light. They challenge the listener, luring them into the depths of the shadows which compose the overcast sky of the album. It is unashamedly bolshie and brazen. There is no room for tenderness here. This is a bitter pill. But if it is the dark of the night you are seeking, then this digital release is worth taking.
"...it’s Kiwi from end to end, indie and awesome. The more I listen, the more I want!"
