Symphonic Metal from Herts & Essex UK
“It will get the head-banging and the foot-tapping. There are bright things in this fledgling band’s future if this debut is anything to go on!” – Games, Brrraaains & A Head-Banging Life
Blending crushing riffs, sweeping strings and big choruses, Amaterasu strive to push the boundaries of symphonic metal. Rather than recreate the sounds that have been done before, Amaterasu took all of their influences to heart and found a way to produce something greater than the sum of its parts.
Hailing from Herts and Essex in the UK, Amaterasu were formed in late 2019 and immediately set out to record their debut single, Black Ritual, entirely produced by the band. Working with esteemed videographer Loki Films, the single and accompanying video was released on the 24th of April 2020. Since then, they followed it up with a lyric video for their second single, Mechanical Mind. The third single, Within His Sin, was released on the 22nd of January, 2021, with the video once again being produced by Loki Films.
