In the beginning there was a word. In the case of AMON it wasn’t the word of god, but of Jiří Valtr, that sacked with this word the singer of Root. The band AMON was raised in 1990.
On this CD there are 11 songs in the brisk tempo of true black/death metal, which I’ll try to specify a little more to you.
The whole CD Return Of The Black Metal is sung in Czech language. The band sings about very dark sides of our world, about parts unexplored. They sing about the diabolical army lead by Lucifer and next to him goes Beltebor. Simply here’s sung about the most demonic beings of the Christian demonology.
The music is fast and aggressive, all the time supported uncompromising drums, that surely build the base of this dark coalition called AMON. It can’t be omitted that in this dark pot boils the good voice of the singer, that gives the whole commando certain stability and fluency. This trio of magicians - Larva (guitar, roar), Skull (bass) a Mr. Dracul (drums) – played also in another bands, Larva in Asgard and Mr. Dracul and Skull in Black Faith.
The first song is in style of some ceremony or rather horror, and then suddenly Temná věž falls on us. Special mentioning deserves also the song Beltebor, that in some parts becomes unleashed wild beast., that will certainly massage your ears with fast black/death metal. When I listen to the band AMON, I can certainly compare it to the Czech jewel called Root. We can find here a lot in common with this band.
Anyway it is a good CD, relatively intelligent form of black/death metal. The band doesn’t hide anything, everything is simply said in their music.
The band now prepares a new CD called Gate of Hell. Currently the music is done already, so I’ll wait if this will reassume the way of the good album Return Of The Black Metal.
