London, England's AMULET has inked a deal with Century Media Records. The band's debut album will be released sometime in 2014.

AMULET quickly gained attention in the underground scene with its demo, "Cut The Crap", in 2011. The tape sold out fast as did the seven-inch version, which is starting to become a collector's item. After supporting bands like PAGAN ALTAR, MANILLA ROAD and THE SWORD, and playing festivals like Bloodstock (UK), Hell's Pleasure (Germany) and Muskelrock (Sweden), Century Media Records became very much interested in AMULET. Now a worldwide deal has been signed to spread the gospel of heavy metal.

The band says: "AMULET want to thank all those who have helped take the band to this point, especially the efforts put in from previous axe slingers and, of course, the mysterious Hangman. To our fans, thanks for storming the front rows and banging your heads. We are excited for the future, it's time to let heavy metal reign supreme!"

Formed in 2010, AMULET is made up of friends who met at various shows over the years and realized they all wanted to make the same powerful and honest music. Guitarist Heathen Steven and bassist Bill Dozer founded the band and were soon joined by Dave Sherwood on drums, vocalist Jamie Elton and completed with the addition of lead guitarist Nippy Blackford.

The five-piece is inspired by the golden era of heavy metal and hard rock but with a focused and slightly doomy riff-heavy sound of their own. You can expect short songs with catchy vocals, heavy riffs, soaring leads and bone shaking bass, driven to the limit with pounding drums. A sound that fits somewhere after "classic" BLACK SABBATH but before METALLICA's scene-defining debut.
