Amber Damned in a hard rock band from Oakville, Ontario. The band consists of Chris Anthony (Lead Vocals/ Rhythm Guitar), Hamza Syed (Lead Guitar), Chris Flynn (Bass) and Taylor Shannon (Drums). The band pulls from different musical backgrounds, ranging from jazz to dance to metal to punk.
They recorded their EP, “Echoes” with music production genius, Nick Blagona. Nick has worked with bands such as Alexisonfire, Foo Fighters, April Wine and more.
The opening track on the EP gives a strong opening with tremendous drive behind it. The rest of the EP doesn’t let down, continues on the same course, strong and full of energy. I can imagine a live Amber Damned show would be intense.
My personal favourite song from the EP is Without a Reason. This song is not quite as heavy as the other four on the EP but it does not lack the high energy that I spoke of earlier.
I would recommend you swing by their bandcamp and check it out. Like what you hear? You can buy it right there.
