Time for the next edition of Metal Anarchy’s “new music showcase,” the feature where I introduce you to up and coming bands that readers of this site may find interesting. This time I have an exclusive Q&A with Amber Architect.
METAL ANARCHY: Tell me a little about your band:
AMBER ARCHITECT: Amber Architect are a hard rock/metal band based in Sydney, Australia that formed at Macquarie Uni in 2015. Things started to kick off for the group in 2016 when they recorded a demo and started playing gigs in well known Sydney music venues. The band consistently gigged throughout 2017 and early 2018. Amber Architect has recently made a big step forward with the release of its debut single “Spaceman” in July 2018. The band is currently focusing on upcoming gigs, writing new music and planning our next release. The current line up consists of Michael William Webb on vocals and guitar, Maxwell Megier on guitar, Thomas ‘Curtains’ Rusin on bass and Ashley Enos on drums.
METAL ANARCHY: Who are your main influences?
AMBER ARCHITECT: Some of our influences include bands such as Metallica, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Pantera etc.
METAL ANARCHY: What can you say about your latest release and why should readers of this site check it out?
AMBER ARCHITECT: Our latest release is our debut single “Spaceman”. People should check it out because it’s a dynamic track that features punchy lyrics, catchy melodies and a tasteful solo. It’s a heavy track but it’s also quite melodic and memorable.
METAL ANARCHY: What can people expect when they go to your live shows?
AMBER ARCHITECT: People can expect a high energy gig consisting of primarily original material with one or two covers for a bit of fun.
METAL ANARCHY: Where do you see your band heading in 5 years?
AMBER ARCHITECT: We plan on releasing our next single late 2018/early 2019. After that, we plan to record an EP. Once our EP is released, we’d like to increase our gigging frequency and start touring out of Sydney along the east coast of Australia.
