Lambs To The Slaughter

Lambs To The Slaughter
(self-released - 2009)

Kaamora are a five-piece from Australia. The band was founded in early 2008 and now have released Lambs To The Slaughter. They decided to record this EP after their demo was sold out. The powerful sound they achieved with the help of a friend who's a studio technician, so sound-wise there is nothing to complain!
The intro Into The Storm leads you into the groove monster Tempest Rising. Singer Luke Greenwood varies between growls and clean, melodic passages which make it easy to get into the sonic world of Kaamora. They combine groove metal with death metal growls and even black-ish screams. You can call them progressive in a way that they aren't accepting genre limitations. The wall of guitars is steam rolling you! It's obvious that guitarists Will X and Jase Emgre are influenced by traditional heavy metal - just listen to to Ruptured! But you will also find reminiscences to Metallica among others. At Soul Of A Machine they kick off with some machine-like noises and spoken words... More melodic this time... A bit like heavy metal mixed with Kraftwerk.... The atmospheric part leads you into Birth Of The Digital God, a heavy, guitar-driven monster. Deep growls accompanied by melodic guitar leads. Somehow disturbing, but at the same time it's fascinating... At one point the remind me of Nevermore... A heavy sonic roller coaster ride is the closer End of an Aeon! They will surprise you with twists and turns - expect the unexpected! And if you don't stop the disk when the music stops, then you'll get the hidden Joe The Redneck, a funny country rock tune.
In Australia they are already quite popular as a clothing company from Ballarat - their hometown - used their music in TV ads. And they played a lot live. So down under they already have a following, now they are out to conquer the word. With the right distribution and some tours they should easily break into the European market... And they should make some friends in the US, too. Check out Kaamora at their MySpace!
