Greek thrash metal offsprings AMKEN will unleash their first studio effort, Adrenaline Shot, worldwide on November 30th. The artwork for the EP was created by Bill Hauser, who has previously worked with thrash metal acts such as HIRAX and GHOUL.
AMKEN comments: “We were looking for a hand-drawn feel, oldschool, creepy and fun, something that would complement the music and give the impression we are looking for, for the band’s first effort. We chose to work with American artist Bill Hauser, who’s work we’ve admired since ever. Bill really grasped our vision and took it to a new level. We feel it fits perfectly with the spirit of AMKEN!”
AMKEN’s upcoming debut, Adrenaline Shot, was recorded, mixed and mastered during winter 2014 by David Prudent (ASTARTE, MENTALLY DEFILED, FADOM) at Made In Hell Studio.
