The 'Premium Brand' of Scottish Thrash Metal.
The brainchild of Calum Henderson and Greg Corlett, Amok formed in early 2004. Angered at the then Metal Scene in their native Glasgow, along with the never ending conveyor belt of Nu-Metal nonsense on the larger scale, the pair decided to take it upon themselves to mix things up and try to write the fastest and most relentless songs they could. Weeks of song writing and home-based recording provided the foundations of their soon-to-be band and within weeks a strong lineup was formed with friends and local contacts from the Glasgow Scene.
The Band's sound has evolved much through time and the result has became Amok's easily distinguished sound they call the 'premium brand'; fusing together speed, aggression, power & melody, the end productis Amoks distinctively heavy, yet very accessible brand of Thrash Metal.
Throughout their many gigs, blood has been shed, bones broken, vomit induced and equipment destroyed as Amok launch their relentless attack on the unsuspecting Metal Scene! Their hard work, determination and growing popularity has made them become a staple within the Glasgow Metal Scene and seen them duly rewarded with support slots for Bands such as Destruction, Onslaught, Bolt Thrower and God Dethroned to name a few, as well as mention in UK metal magazine Terrorizer.
Amok's debut album "Downhill without Brakes" was released in 2008 through Witches Brew in Germany to positive reviews all round!
