5.0 out of 5 stars Kings of Crust? June 13, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I remember when I first heard songs by AMEBIX back in the late 80s(after they broke up)...on first listen to the original songs from Arise, one could be forgiven for thinking that it was Cronos' voice fronting a more primal(read: less technically proficient)version of that band. AMEBIX's singer - The Baron - had Cronos' raspy snarl down so well that the difference was virtually indistinguishable. That, plus the fact that the band had such a slow, thick, and SLUDGY sound similar to early VENOM, which was almost in direct opposition to the hyperspeed sound that typified the Hardcore punk of the day, made that assessment understandable.
But there was an obvious difference between AMEBIX and their so-called "inspiration". Whereas VENOM's songs were juvenile "evil" tales of damnation and satanic rituals, AMEBIX concerned themselves with demons that were a little more down-to earth, both personally and politically(although "The Moor" and "Axeman" do indulge in a little nasty mythical subject matter). And, while there were some "punk" identified bands at(or a little before) that time that weren't breaking the sound barrier with mega-speedy sonic assaults(i.e. the almighty FLIPPER, or to a lesser extent FANG), AMEBIX really set a new standard by adding such a HEAVY sound, that until that time seemed strictly the province of metal, to their songs.
This sound would later be identified as "Crust", a term which would later be applied to a wide variety of bands which, as far as I can tell, only seem to share a raw and unskilled sound with zero production values on their releases. I'm sure to some that description could apply to AMEBIX as well, but the strength of their songs is that they really are original in their own way. They never played to any labels or terms coined by critics...

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent stuff -- a classic June 2, 2003
Format:Audio CD
There's nary a bad song on this one. The other reviews, "a music fan from san francisco" (below) got it right: this is a classic album, and it holds up well. Have you ever wondered what early Black Sabbath, "Black Metal"-era Venom, and "Overkill"-era Motorhead might sound like, had they come from the punk scene? Now's your chance! ALmost every song on here is a galloping, dugga-dugga- chubb-chubb, chunka chunka guitar fest, but with punk sensibilities. Amebix applied their morbid motif to deeper social concerns: state oppression, the cruelty of wage slavery, the need to "arise and get off your knees," and were influenced as much by anarchist philosophy as by evil metal. Excellent!
Amebix's influence is hard to overestimate, too. Almost all modern hardcore bands worth hearing bear their mark. The late 80's "crossover" hc era, which saw metal and punk combine to give the world thrash, New York hardcore, and the like, were all preceded by Amebix's effortless punk/metal mix. Other dark hc bands, like NEUROSIS, RORSCHACH, NAUSEA, WORLD BURNS TO DEATH, and modern crust like DOOM, MISERY, and others, pay homage to Amebix in nearly every song. While AMebix tackled deep issues about the human (social) condition, they would also indulge a bit in the horror genre, as "Axeman" testifies (one of the better tracks on the album, too). Amebix have broad, cross-category appeal, and their influence is sure to only grow as time goes on.

5.0 out of 5 stars the Heaviest non metal band ever June 4, 2003
By Patrick
Format:Audio CD
Amebix was a collective of no nonsense rowdies from the south west of England. As a bunch of Anarchistic warriors they roamed the land and even went overseas where they gained a good following in the former East Block states and The Netherlands where I encountered them. Their music is best described as a crossover from bands like Motorhead and Venom with Disscharge, The Exploited, Disorder and even a bit of the Cure thrown in. I know for a fact that they were a huge inspiration for the 2nd wave of British Heavy Metal and also to gave a kick up the backside of the punkscene who were sinking into new wave mode to easily. Get Of Your Knees, Get Up Stand Up their battle cry.

4.0 out of 5 stars At first, I hated it... March 10, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I mail-ordered this record + 7" more than a decade ago from Alternative Tentacles. My friend recomended it to me and I had $8 to toss, so I picked it up. I put it on when I got home and I hated it... I htink I listened through "The Axeman" and I read the notes where Spider(?) is going on about Nietzche and how it relates to some song the played... I forget which. I put the record back on the rack and figured I'd hock it sometime... but I never did.

For whatever reason, I gave it a second chance the other week. I still theink "Axeman" is stupid, but songs like "Arise" and "Right to Ride" are pretty good. It's not a bad album... If you're a punker who's into Fang and Flipper, then check out Amebix. Amebix is like the aforementioned bands minus the humour.
