Amity in Fame � Biography (June 2009)

The band was founded in May 2008 and plays powerful acoustic rock. While this may sound like a stereotype, the big strength of the band is its original style. Most of the band members are influenced by metal, still they refuse to use distorted guitars in their songs. Instead, the lead guitarist of the band incorporated a very individual style to play his Variax. The band�s unique sound already found a broad reception within the internet community. Though the history of the band dates back less than a year, the band has already received feedback other bands work years for.

In July 2008 the band released its first album �Dinner for One�, self-recorded and self-mastered (unfortunately). Presently, the album is one of the most popular releases on Jamendo, one of the world�s biggest creative commons platforms. It was in the top 10 of �popularity this week� (out of over 20,000 albums) in June 2009 for three consecutive weeks.

In January 2009, the band released its first music video (also written and produced by the band) which also found a broad reception within the internet community � though it�s a fun-video basically. Though the video has been produced with a budget of less than $ 1,500, it already received airplay on Austria�s national music television channel (gotv).

Several internet-radios featured the band (from the States, UK, France, Poland, Germany and Austria) and the band was featured on several compilations. Less than a year after the band�s first rehearsal, it achieved rank five in Middle-Europe�s biggest band contest, the International Live Award, out of over 1,000 bands of six countries.

Presently, the band is working on its new album and on the next music video to a song called "The Villain". The second album will go far beyond �Dinner for One� in means of style and quality.
