Hailing from Lille, France, Amber Sea is a promising newcomer in the progressive metal scene that mixes heaviness, groove, and melody into a sound unlike any that has been heard before. Founded by Kevin Chesnais and Axel Richet in 2013, they had the idea to mix all their influences together while adding their own personal touch to create a unique, technical and spontaneous sound. Trying to avoid all the "djent" clichés, they use other personal influences that include pop punk, ambiant and electronica.
After putting their efforts together writing for about a year, they finally created a five track EP called Infantile Vision. While recording, they invited Cycles' singer Mathieu Rouland as a guest to record his vocals on the EP. Seeing Matt's extreme motivation, brilliant ideas and high skills, they asked him to join the band as a full time member and he immediately accepted the offer. Right after that, they chose Cairn Tse-Lalonde, brillant student of Music Production & Engineering at the world-renowned Berklee College Of Music and good friend of Kevin, to mix and master the EP. After listening to the demos done by the band, he accepted and immediately started to work on them.
The EP finally done, they searched everywhere to find guitar players and drummers. They finally found really talented and extremely motivated members to join the crew and work as one big machine. The band released their first single “Deci(mate)” featuring Chris Barretto from Monuments in September before releasing “Shinigami” in October. In December they announced that they had signed with American based Famined Records and will release Infantile Vision on February 10th, 2015.
But, as it stands, you won't have to wait another day to give a listen. The entirety of Infantile Vision is currently live and streaming on the Famined Records YouTube channel and being premiered right here, right now! Press that "play" button ASAP and grab your pre-orders HERE!
