Ammarah is a five-piece Heavy Metal band from Singapore consisting of vocalist and frontman Aliz, Lead guitarist Aiz, keyboardist Allie, bassist Ruffy and drummer HerryK that has created a sound that would make any lover of Heavy Metal happy. The band takes elements of classic metal bands like Deep Purple and Black Sabbath and combines them with the more recent melodic metal sounds of bands like Dream Theatre. The band is currently in the middle recording but has released one of the tracks as a way to promote their upcoming EP. The song “Sengsara” is a track that was created when lyrics from Aliz were combined with a song written by Wan a decade ago. “Sengsara” begins with a very energetic build-up before the entire band launches into a song that has a classic metal feel. The vocals performed by Aliz have the same energy and delivery as anything that Ronnie James Dio and the music will easily remind you of a cross between Dio and Dream Theatre. Taking their place in the world of heavy metal, Ammarah allows the heaviness of the guitars from Wan and the lightness of the keys from Allie combine to create a track that alternates between a hard metal approach and a lighter melodic approach for the five minutes that make up the length of the song. If the song “Sengsara” is anything to go by, the upcoming release from Ammarah should be a very enjoyable heavy metal release. - Matheson Kamin

Bio

Coming from many different bands, each member of Ammarah have something special to put in the music that's unique to themselves, to make music that can only be recognized as Ammarah's own. A blend of dark mystery, fear of the unknown, impending destruction and also the agony of lost love.. Our music will surely touch the hearts of people, or ignite hidden desires..

Aliz, vocalist and frontman, with large influences from Ronnie James Dio, Ian Gillian and Sebastian Bach, brings into the music fiercesome, and straight, hard rocking melodies.

Lead guitariist Aiz, with his unique style of playing and melodies, influencing from Joe Satriani, Marty Friedman, Paul Gilbert, Andy Timmons, John Petrucci, Michael Romeo, Slash, Vinnie Moore and many more, giving Ammarah the touch of anger and destruction.

Giving the haunting and mysterious sound, keyboardist Allie, classically trained, but tainted with the darkness of rock and metal, having influenced by Nightwish, Bill Evans, Dream Theater, Michael Petrucciani, Ketih Jarrett, Tori Amos, Diablo Swing Orchestra making Ammarah sound unique like no other..

Adding the thunderous rumble to the mix and heavily influenced by Iron Maiden and Metallica, bassist Ruffy with his enchanting bass melodies, giving Ammarah's music something that you just can't let go of hearing.

And finally the backbone of the band, drummer HerryK, influenced by drummers such as John Otto, Dave Lombardo, Chad Smith and Gene Hoglan, giving the hard rocking, heart thumping beat of the heavyness of Ammarah to the masses.

Even though Ammarah is new, each of the members definitely aren't. Having performed in various gigs and shows for many years and gaining experience, each of us have something special to contribute to show to the audiences and fans, to ensure a show that is inspiring and awesome.
