Germany's AMBER have been releasing material at an extremely rapid pace, with 2 EPs and an upcoming split in less than 2 years. Every song is epic, beautiful and crushing. Combining lush atmospherics with slow, devastating breakdowns, the band pays homage to greats such as; Pelican, Isis, AmenRa, Cult of Luna, Rosetta, Back When and Buried Inside.
The amazing news just keeps rolling in! AMBER will be releasing material with Zegema Beach Records! If you haven't heard this band yet, be prepared to go to the clothing store - because this is going to knock your goddamn socks off.

AMBER dropped their debut self-titled EP in April 2012. This cd/cassette release reeled me in as it sounded vaguely similar to many bands that I loved, yet it was so smooth, fluid and all-encompassing that it really separated itself from all my initial comparisons.
When the band quickly followed up with 'Lovesaken' in 2013 I was officially a fan for life. I was lucky enough to interview the band's drummer Jussi and we kept I touch. When I started Zegema Beach Records, contacting him was a no-brainer. It worked out so well it still makes me giddy.
So here we are today, with Zegema Beach Records releasing the AMBER demo/self-titled EP on 12" vinyl with a limited pressing of 300 copies. The vinyl includes limited artwork from Brent Wellington.
For fans of: Isis, Buried Inside, The Alaskan and Pelican.
