The long awaited new album from Ameted is finally available Worldwide!
Ameted – Face What’s Next
The new album by Ameted, Face What’s Next, is a solid eight song album harkening back to the halcyon days of album rock. Musicians Scott Schwertly and Brian Johnstone deliver some of their strongest songwriting and music making ever in this new release.
After an etherial crescendo of sound, the first track hammers the listener with a jarring riff set to a 5/4 tempo only to switch gears to a melodic prog rock overture of melody and music. Both the music itself and the lyric speak to the idea of the next thing coming down the pike requiring one to only stand and face what’s next. This title track also features Brian’s son, Victor, performing violin.
Each song on Face What’s Next has its own theme. The song order–three rockers, followed by three ballad type songs, and ending with two more rockers–gives the entire album a very satisfying cohesiveness and makes it very listenable as a whole. This is not a compilation of singles, this is a rock album. It leans heavy metal at times, acoustic rock at others, and all in a prog rock mood to keep time signature counters happy.
