Revved up rhythms, soaring melodies, blistering breakdowns and hilariously subversive non-sequitur song titles are the stock-in-trade of the hard-partying mischief-makers in THE AMITY AFFLICTION. Yet cloaked beneath the mayhem lie the stark ... Read more in Amazon's The Amity Affliction Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Aussie Affliction 24 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD
I first heard of the Amity Affliction while halfheartedly attempting to hear a decent song on one of the music television channels. Kerrang was busy playing the endless tween dross of paramore and black veil brides, so it was Scuzz who came up trumps with a song called 'Youngbloods' - the album title and lead single from this bands previous effort. Safe to say it was enough to peak an interest and got me listening to both old and new albums. Now with 'Chasing Ghosts' the Australian melodic metalcore band produce a solid if a bit similar sound..

A pretty intense intro is a good start.. but the interchange of vocalists from a meaty scream to the auto-tuned melodic, lighten things up... not necessarily for the good. Thankfully the vocalists improve for the chorus with cries of 'Are you at all haunted by memories past? Are you ready to make this one breath your last?'. Laden with odd orchestral string sections towards the end, its only by the 3rd or 4th round of the chorus that sticks with you. 'Life Underground' feels far more catchier with a counting drum beat and cleaner vocals. 'So selfish are my footsteps and so foolish are they now. But there's not much I can do here now that I'm living underground' is an instant hook due to some brilliant stuttering guitar riffs. The layout of the song feels better off too as the screams are done in verses and melodic stays (mostly) in the chorus - it may be generic but its a formula that works.

A right mash up of intense drum patterns and heavy droning guitars. A bit of a whiny chorus means there's little worth listening to here. The most meaning full lyric of the bunch being a tortured cry of 'I've been grieving so much with each passing day, but I'm angry and hurt and I hate you all the same'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Impressive 21 Feb 2013
By Nicholas S. - Published on
Their lyrics and vocals are amazing and their lyrics are really deep if you read into them. This band is easily my new favorite and i think everyone should give them a chance. Their other album YoungBlood is great as well. My favorite song has to be Chasing Ghosts so far. Thank you to XM channel 37 Octane for getting me into them!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great album! 15 July 2013

I heard one of their singles on SiriusXM Octane "Big Uns" countdown back in February. The other day I had the song come into my head and couldn't get it out, and Googled who it was. I took a listen to some of the album and knew I had to buy it. Its very reminiscent of old school Atreyu and what they could have been (not that Atreyu is bad now, they just grew up, but you get my point).

Great vocals, great rhythym with the drums and breakdowns. This album gets me fired up at the gym every time. GREAT purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!! 28 Feb 2013
By Bill - Published on

I forgot where I first heard about them, but I started listening to some of their songs a few weeks ago and really got into them; I couldn't get bored with them and had some of their catchy tunes staying with me throughout the day. Needless to say, I decided I'd buy it the other day (I think it was two days ago). I've been extremely pleased with it!

Their songs flow smoothly and they are all catchy. The singing and screaming is well done. Their sound reminds me of a pleasant mix of hardcore and rock--but not how some bands try to mix metal and pop and in the end it sounds crappy and like they can't decide what they want to do. The Amity Affliction have their own sound in that regard, and it works great, with hardcore guitars and drums and screaming mixed seamlessly with singing and guitar work that complements it.

This has become one of my favorite albums and I would recommend it to anyone who likes hardcore rock or metal. You won't be disappointed!

By Iron Sabian - Published on

I came across this band through YouTube, and the song was "Chasing Ghosts" which sparked my interest because of the energy the band portrayed. I really enjoyed the whole album, my favorite song is 'Open Letter.' I expect great things from this band in the near future!
