传记 : Amok (NOR)

AMOK spawned in 2000 as a death/grind/thrash metal unit.
The aim was from the beginning to bring back the doomsday holocaust from the 80s.
Musical inspiration was bands like Autopsy, Beherit, VON, Masters Hammer, Sadistik Exekution, Carcass, Blasphemy and old Scandinavian death metal.

At first AMOK consisted of Goatpromoter Lava (guitars/vocals) and Stanley (bass/drums).
After some months of rehearsing Mord joined and took over the drums. This made live performances possible.
AMOK released 2 demos (Sadistic Attack [2001] and Lava Dictatorship [2002]) and performed 3 concerts before the line-up changed.
Both Stanley and Mord left in 2003.

Goatpromoter Lava then joined forces with Necrocum (vocals) and Iscariah (bass).
AMOK released a new promo, Effective Mass-Torture [2003], where the title track presents the new line-up.
The drums were programmed for this track.

Witchhammer Production re-released "Lava Dictatorship" in 2003, as a split cassette with Audiopain.
Perverted Taste re-released "Sadistic Attack" in 2004, as a split 10" EP with Taake.
In early 2006 Holycaust Records released A Norwegian Hail To VON as a gatefold 2x7 EP.
On this release AMOK, Taake, Norwegian Evil and Urgehal pays homage to VON.

AMOK started writing/recording material for their debut album as early as in the beginning of 2004.
After trying out the material with programmed drums the search for a drummer started. Stanley rejoined AMOK for this duty.
The salvation through fundamentalistic religious fanatism is finally here in Necrospiritual Deathcore.
Planet Satan Revolution will release "Necrospiritual Deathcore" in September 2006.
