Amathyst record with Nick Launay!

Although this is old news, people of Coreatorium might not know this.

Amathyst are an all girl goth-rock band from Newcastle. If your going to jump to conclusions about this band, you may aswell jump into oncoming traffic. Their live set is electrifying and they recorded a while back with producer Nick Launay.

To put it quite bluntly, the man is a freaking genius and has worked with John Lydon (Public Image Ltd), Talking Heads, Kate Bush, Silverchair, Lou Reed, Midnight Oil, Nick Cave (Grinderman, Bad Seeds, Birthday Party) and the list goes on.

The track EMILY is a rambunctious mix of the gap between hard rock and metal filled with an arsekicking low end and Renee and Kristy's contrasting yet effective vocal deliveries. You can check out the track for yourself on their Triple J Unearthed page, where I implore you all to download it for your iPods! Downloads on Triple J's Unearthed page will help Amathyst to climb the charts and you can do so by clicking here.

Hopefully this dynamic combination continues and rears its potential soon enough in the future.
