About

Biography

“At the crossroads of time and space, where dark rains meet fiery skies, Amberjacks take their stance. Inside the four walls of a tiny shack each song represents a maddening choice for its temporary inhabitant. From Robert Johnson’s inner demons to wars far away; there is no escape. Even running out and slamming the door results in an encounter with the inevitable.
The accumulation of relentlessly rolling drums, pounding yet melodic bass, hauntingly emotional guitar, sinister lyrics, passionate performance full of improvisation and distinctive song writing combining both heavy riffs and strong melody, make Amberjacks an experience of exploration for both band and listener.”
– Nam Haebo, January 2014 –

February 2014 marks the release of Amberjacks self titled debut album.
 The album was produced in the fall of 2013 by Wouter Bude at the Moon Music studio (Naverone, The Mad Trist), mixed by Wessel Oltheten at Studio 14 and mastered by Pieter Kloos (Peter Pan Speedrock, Motorpsycho) at The Void. 
The album is released on CD with exclusive digipack and available via digital sources (iTunes, Bandcamp, Spotify, etc.). Vinyl Release; t.b.a.
