My HeadBangers, welcome from Saint Petersburg, Russia: [AMATORY]
My HeadBangers know I don’t like to use translators. Sometimes they work and when they don’t it can be a disaster, trust me I know from personal experience. And, I would never translate any bands songs ever. In the translation the feeling and the meaning is lost. I love the original even if I don’t know what it all means. When your a Metalhead it just comes to you.
Let’s look at some bio on these guys:
[Amatory] (commonly typeset as [AMATORY], to fit their logo) is a Russian metalcore band, formed in 2001 in Saint Petersburg. The band went on hiatus from extensive touring and studio work at the end of 2012, having released 5 studio albums. In 2015, the band returned from hiatus and released sixth studio album simply titled «6».
The group won two awards at the “Russian Alternative Music Prize” in 2005 and has toured across Russia, Estonia, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Moldova, Belarus, Ukraine and Finland.
The band spans several genres, including Death Metal, Metalcore, and Melodic Death Metal. Which you know Melodic Death Metal is my thing.
A few interesting things about Saint Petersburg:
St. Petersburg is a Russian port city on the Baltic Sea. It was the imperial capital for 2 centuries, having been founded in 1703 by Peter the Great, subject of the city’s iconic “Bronze Horseman” statue. It remains Russia’s cultural center, with venues such as the Mariinsky Theatre hosting opera and ballet, and the State Russian Museum showcasing Russian art, from Orthodox icon paintings to Kandinsky works.

Vittu minua!!!!!! My HeadBangers, this was the hardest blog I’ve ever done. Paska! Mainly because of the language barrier, and I hate using translators. Any way as you can tell [Amatory] crosses a lot of genres, but as my metal man says “There is metal in everything”. I’m a Melodic Death Metal person and I live for my growl vocals and as I always say what speaks to me may not speak to you. Really it’s just all about the music HeadBangers, by that I mean, the sound of the instruments, each individual one, does it give you a rush, does it make your heart pound, forget the words, concentrate on the sound, the rhythm, and there it is. Music crosses all barriers. I cannot begin to tell you guys how many countries I have discovered because of my Metal Music. Not to mention new friends that I will hold close forever. If you think a country is “to different”, maybe it’s because you don’t really know anyone from there. Think about it, I know my scope of the world has changed so much and my life because of the music and the bands. I have not talked or met one band that was rude or dismissive. Most have even gone out of their way to get me information or help me with translations and anything else I needed. If music ruled the world we would all be in a better place but, until then stay with me while we explore this planet and find more great metal.
That’s it for this week. Join me next week for another band and another song. In the meantime don’t stand to close to the fire if you can’t handle the burn…..
