Amity In Fame supply some dramatic weighty tones with an acoustic rock sound that doesn't play by the acoustic rule-book.
In 'Shine', the vocal is serious and brooding with proper grunge pedigree. This song has the feel of a soundtrack, with twists and turns along its scorched path.
'The Kraken' follows like an acoustic version of System Of A Down with clever exotic guitar work and loads of quick chops. There's a gargantuan instrumental solo section before a frantic final half-minute finale.
More traditionally acoustic, 'Through' sets a different tone, but still has plenty of substance. It's like a rock-ballad, but without all the sickening wetness.
This is a great record from Amity In Fame, acoustic, but heavy.
