Album Notes
With the band celebrating their 4th year in existence, vocalist and guitarist John Salka looks back on the band's history and has only one thing to say: 'We're just getting started.' Formed in late 2005, hailing from Albany in upstate NY Amalgama has been making a name for themselves in the clubs across the northeast in support of their album When the Dust Settles. Influenced by bands like Metallica, Megadeth and Thin Lizzy the band combines powerful riffage of the dual-guitar battery unleashed by John Salka and Ray Hill, backed by Justin Cheever's thunderous drums and Sean Murphy's mighty bass to blast heavy metal into the 21st century. Amalgama is gunning for the top, and here to stay.

"...this is one great band that's just getting better..."

What he said ^^^^
Really guys, this thing rocks your socks off, fills those socks with batteries, and then beats you with your own socks. It's loud and heavy, but John Salka's intelligible, intelligent, and - most shocking - SUNG vocals really fill out these songs. I hear these guys are working on new material right now, and I can't wait to get hit in the face with it.

Heavy as fuck!
As a proud owner of 'When The Dust Settles', I must say it is one of the best self produced albums I've ever heard. Thrashers like 'Winter' and 'Dogs' will kick you in the face, but Amalgama can slow it down too, as proven by 'Slip Into Darkness' and 'Transfusion', a very driving, syncopated instrumental. They also had a mean cover of 'Slave New World' on their Myspace... wonder what happened to that? But, all-in-all, you will not be disappointed with this album.
