AMKEN Release New Videoclip
AMKEN was formed in September 2011 in Athens, Greece. Like zombies ‘n’ thrash? Watch below. this is sick!
Tunnels, fire and evil ghosts! AMKEN’s first hint on their debut full-length album is here and is entitled “Soul’s Crypt”!
After the release of their first ΕΡ “Adrenaline Shot”, accompanied by live shows around Greece and abroad, the Greek thrashers are bringing in a more mature sound with their new videoclip, this time out of their upcoming album “Theater Of The Absurd”.
The video for “Soul’s Crypt” was once again directed by Antonis Skaramagkas and produced by David Prudent, while it debuted on national TV via METAL HAMMER’s midnight show on Sunday night.
The band is now scheduling a series of live performances since the release of “Theater Of The Absurd” is expected in 2016.

What happens when four crazy fellows join forces in the heart of the Greek metal scene? Blood-pumping, fast-paced bay area thrash combined with that notorius teutonic drive; all under the veil of their debut release, “Adrenaline Shot” EP (30.11.2014).
Winners of the first TOP OF THE ROCKS contest, AMKEN is spreading the mayhem of their breathtaking performances with numerous live shows around Greece and abroad, including support slots with SIX FEET UNDER (US), SKELETONWITCH (US), SKULL FIST (CA), REACTORY (DE) and BIO-CANCER (GR) among others. Their biggest festival feature was Schoolwave Festival 2015 supporting PLANET OF ZEUS (GR) in front of a 1000+ crowd.
In anticipation of their full-length album the quartet is currently working vigorously for an/ early 2016 release, at the same time celebrating recognition through their feature on METAL HAMMER’s CD compilation “Lessons in Violence – The New Greek Thrash Metal Breed” (issue #365) and the re-release of their debut EP as a split via Mexican label EBM Records (20.05.2015).
