Playing: Bloodstock 2013 Sunday 11, Hobgoblin New Blood Stage - Buy Tickets
London's Amulet formed in 2010 with the simple aim of creating powerful and honest heavy metal. The five piece's sound is inspired by the classic heavy rock and metal era of 1970-1985. A mutual love of NWOBHM and heavy music with that raw feel has aided the band to naturally forge their own sound that sits somewhere after Sabbath but before Metallica and co. Amulet capture the rough edged attack and songwriting focus of this peak heavy metal period. The band believe in putting on an impressive live show with a graveyard set and The Hangman can often been seen stalking the dark corners of the stage.
The four track 'Cut the Crap' demo was self released on 222 tapes, well received and sold out in 2011. In 2012 Mordgrimm Records re-released it as a vinyl EP limited to 500 copies which has also sold out. The band have proudly shared stages with Angel Witch, Manilla Road, The Sword, Cauldron, Enforcer, Holocaust and have already played some great shows in Norway, Sweden and Germany. A full album is due at the end of 2013.
