Amken is a thrash band from Greece. Find out more below and start a mosh pit. "What happens when four crazy fellows join forces in the heart of the Greek metal scene? Blood-pumping, fast-paced bay area thrash combined with that notorius teutonic drive; all under the veil of their debut release, "Adrenaline Shot" EP (30.11.2014). Winners of the first TOP OF THE ROCKS contest, AMKEN is spreading the mayhem of their breathtaking performances with numerous live shows around Greece and abroad, including support slots with SKELETONWITCH (US), PLANET OF ZEUS (GR), REACTORY (DE), BIO-CANCER (GR), SIX FEET UNDER (US) in Germany and SKULL FIST (CA) in Cyprus. In anticipation of their full-length album the quartet is currently working vigorously for a late 2015 / early 2016 release, at the same time celebrating recognition through their feature on METAL HAMMER's CD compilation "Lessons in Violence – The New Greek Thrash Metal Breed" (issue #365) and the re-release of their debut EP as a split via Mexican label EBM Records (20.05.2015). AMKEN was formed in September 2011 in Athens, Greece." www.facebook.com/amkenthrash www.twitter.com/Amkenthrash Amken - Adrenaline Shot Ep (2014) This person is not Amken, but he likes Amken and he wants the whole world to know about it!
