Amarok Tour !!   Leave a comment

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE:

Northern California’s Amarok announces the release of their debut, self-titled album and a 30 day US Tour starting April 1st. Featuring 2 songs of crushingly heavy doom clocking in at 30 minutes, this is a must have for fans of doom and heavy music in general. The album is set for release on May 5th on Orca Wolf Records, though copies will be availabe from the band on tour in April. Pre-orders can be made at http://www.orcawolf.com and the album can be downloaded for donation/free (suggested price $8). The album is being released on vinyl and MP3 only at this time – on tour CDs and tapes will be available at the shows.

“For fans of Khanate, Weedeater, Burning Witch, Grief, and for fans of Funeral Doom and more ambient heavy styles, Amarok have made the surprise-release of the year. I wasn’t expecting this to be as good as it is and due to the fact that they blend Funeral, Stoner and Ambient Doom Metal styles so well, this should be high on many an doomster’s shopping list. This will be in my top 10 of 2010, highly recommend you check this band out…..9.5/10”

This will be the first major tour for Amarok, however, they’ve been blowing away audiences up and down the west coast for the last year with bands including Weedeater, Thou, Samothrace, Cough, Zoroaster, Dark Castle, Red Fang, Rosetta, etc. Two of the members have toured extensively with their other band (currently on hiatus) The Makai.
