Album Review : AMUL9 – Elevated Beings

Posted in Music with tags , , , , , , , , on September 29, 2010 by Rnowak

I first became aware of AMUL9 from my good Friend and mastermind of Latex Records Eddie Minzenmayer. After hearing a few tracks off the band’s Myspace page I wanted to hear more from them( and that’s a pretty good thing coming from someone who’s not too huge into the punk rock music scene). It was shortly thereafter Latex Records sent me a press copy of the soon to be released album Elevated Beings for me to review for all of you guys here.

After listening to Elevated Beings in it’s entirety  it became clear to me that AMUL9 offered more then just their punk rock style but they also fell into  that music with a message category. Now by music with a message  I mean it’s that type of speak up/out about something you stand for or believe in message ( a very good example of this would be like  Rage Against The Machine).  It’s messages such as racism, peace and  strengthening ourselves  AMUL9 coveys to the listener in each tracks.  Which I must say that they did an excellent job at getting the messages across with each track.  It wasn’t like it required super deep thought to get the point across (like some bands and artists do when they emulate this style). At the same time though it wasn’t like it didn’t require no thought at all. It really was the happy medium. Of which I’m not to sure about you guys but if more were to get this happy medium down I think I would open my music library to include more similar artists/bands.

Elevated Beings really was a refreshing listening experience (not that I ever get sick of my normal style of music but it’s good to mix things up a bit every now and then). This being AMUL9 ‘s first album release I can say that I for one will be looking forward to checking out future releases from them.

If you guys would like  more info on AMUL9 do check out their website over here. You will be able to find a short biography of the band, a lyrics section, tour dates, album release dates and a behind the scenes video with AMUL9. Which I highly recommend that you do watch as you will get a much deeper feel for the band and the music they have to offer.  I would like to thank Eddie Minzenmayer ( Latex Records) for giving me such an opportunity to hear some pretty great music!
