Biography

Manchester, United Kingdom (1999 – present)

Amplifier is a British band from Manchester, United Kingdom. The band has released four albums and four EPs since its inception in 1999. Their self-titled debut album was released in 2004 by Music for Nations. Their second album, Insider was released in Europe in 2006 on the SPV label. Their third album, The Octopus, was released to fans in December 2010 ahead of a full release in January 2011.

The band’s sound has been described as “Soundgarden, Tool, Black Sabbath, Oceansize and Pink Floyd taking copious amounts of mind-altering substances and venturing on a trip through time and space (to another dimension), and back again.” Their music is characterised by guitarist Sel Balamir’s effects pedals, extended heavy sections, atmospheric compositions and philosophical lyrics.

    I've finally made up my mind regarding Mystoria: it's their worst album to date. And I thought "Echo Street" was lame... That one actually grows up on you, unlike "Mystoria", which just gets rather dull and repetitive the more you listen to it, as it tries nothing more than to shove uninspired riffs and general noise into your head. That being said, "Mystoria" is a nice rock album by any other band besides Amplifier. Now please bring back the long epic "build-uppers" in the next album. Much obliged.

    I'm enjoying my first listen of Mystoria. Big guitars, trippy vibe. If you thought "Echo Street" swung too close to CSN (and not even Y) then this is the antidote.

    Wow, "Mystoria" is a very "in your face" album, akin to Sucioperro's "Fused"! It's fast, unexpected, it hits you hard and heavy, it's a trip of pure rocking power from 0 to 100% of nearly all songs, there is never a dull moment on this one. I'm definitely impressed with "Mystoria", and I have to say I absolutely love it as a rock album, but I'm still unsure of it as an Amplifier album. It obviously begs for more listening time, something which I will gladly surrender to.

    Alright, so, I just got home, and there it was, in my mailbox, the highly anticipated Mystoria, waiting for me! And a signed edition, on top of that! Greatness awaits *_*

    Leaks have landed. My vinyl should arrive tomorrow, but couldn't wait for it so I'm listening now. I'm not expecting another Octopus but it's good so far.

    If my Mystoria pre-order has been dispatched today, why hasn't a link for a digital download been made available in my e-mail as well? DO I HAVE TO WAIT FOR THE ACTUAL CD TO GET HERE?! D: *googles for leaks*
