In 2014 Ameted released their concept album Journey to the Frozen Sun. This concept is based on a hero’s journey. The theme centers around the idea of a Frozen Sun, or Black Hole. In the story this is representative both of the hero’s initially frozen heart and unwillingness to complete his quest as well as the power source for the villains. The fictitious villains are represented as “power lords” achieving power through the Frozen Sun, or Black Hole.
Ameted therefore solutes the physicists at LIGO who on February 11 announced they had heard and recorded the sound of a faint blip or chirp of two black holes colliding a billion light-years away. This also confirms with hard evidence the final piece of Einstein’s general theory of relativity–“gravitational waves, the ripples in the fabric of space-time that Einstein predicted a century ago.” Read the NYTimes story here: Gravitational Waves Detected, Confirming Einstein’s Theory

States is Ameted’s second official release. It’s a solid rocker from start to stop. Blends prog, melodic rock, and metal. While not a concept album, thematic elements are present throughout dealing with various states of mind, body and spirit.
Originally conceived and demoed in 1995 or so, Tales of a Circus was finally recorded and released in 2005. This is Ameted’s first official release. A concept album that embraces a variety of musical influences, from hard rock to acoustic rock.
Ameted is extremely proud to be able to say Journey to the Frozen Sun is now available. This album is the culmination of artistry, determination, and enthusiasm that can only be described as freaking killer! A concept album takes a while to formulate, brew, and finally bring to fruition. Factor in the many other duties, obligations, and circumstances of life and you should have a pretty clear picture as to why this is such a momentous occasion.
Please support the band and order your copy today directly through our distributor CDBaby. You won’t be disappointed!
Also available in iTunes and coming soon to many other distributors!!
Ameted has begun tracking for a new concept album. The band is currently utilizing Reaper DAW for this task (http://www.reaper.fm/). The band is hopeful that the new album will be completed and available early in 2013.
In the meantime Brian has a new guitar for this project. See his review of the new ESP HORIZON FR-II w/Duncans.
Ameted’s own Brian Johnstone was in Memphis, TN last week. Among other things he had the opportunity to visit the hallowed halls of Gibson. The Gibson Memphis store has an awesome staff! Brian got hooked up with some replacement parts for one of the tuners on his EJ200.
Brian had a chance to try out a Flying V and a Les Paul Custom Zakk Wylde “Camo” (drool). Here’s some sloppy riffage:
