Biography

There are more than one band named Amulet:
1. A hardcore band from Norway
2. A metal band from the United Kingdom
3. A rock band from Finland
4. A rock band from the United States

1) Norwegian Band
After a week of borrowing each other’s records, Amulet recorded their first demo in September]1993 Little did they know that this was the beginning of a working relationship spanning over a decade. They formed as a three piece with Lars Rasmussen on guitar, Torgny Amdam on vocals/drums and Arne Haabeth on bass. The two first official releases dabbled in teenage sentimentality: the self-titled debut and the Engrave EP were before emo achieved genre-status. If anything, it is 17 year old Lars’ intricate, yet to-the-point, guitar playing that most clearly stands out and hints at a future potential for this band. Amulet gradually moved towards a more direct and aggressive style.

Having been raised by eighties , they looked to their musical roots, something that is very evident in the Diamond 7” (1997): A fast, adrenaline-fuelled hardcore song ending with a triumphant moshpart. Now they had the very athletic hardcore drummer Truls Berg on board, adding precision and power.

Amulet was now a fullblown old-school hardcore band. Between playing regular shows, mostly in their home city of Oslo, Amulet recorded the Life on the Edge of Chaos 7” in August 1998. This takes on an even harder and more direct approach than Diamond, but at the same time incorporates classic rock and heavy-metal elements.
