Amethyst was formed in Kansas City in 1986 and recorded all of these songs between 1990 & 1992. We shouldn’t confuse them with the other US Amethyst which released the hyper-expenssive now EP “Outside of Nowhere” in 1984.Heavily influenced by bands like Queensryche Amethyst play ’80s Melodic Power Metal.The Queensryche effect is really more than obvious in their music!!! Clear soaring vocals and first-class musicianship dominate this exceptional release. First time ever on cd .Songs like “Abstract of mind”, “Executor”, “Mirrored Sky” and “The tresspasser” are just classics in their genre! Highly Recommended to all the fans of 80’s Power Metal the american way. The rest of you should really try to listen to them.
