Amphetamin

Amphetamin is a french “Post-prog” project which came out of my head in 2006, and which was turned into a band in 2008 after I got some positive feedback encouraging me to take that decision. At first, I just wanted to express myself, go through with my ideas, my cravings; that’s why that project was very personal and just a side project at the beginning. I didn’t consider I would turn it into a band, this came afterwards, when I learnt to be at ease with myself. Today, it still represents my soul, and my heart beats its time! I’m always following my wishes,that’s why every album is different.

Sebastian Laurent :
Vocals, guitar, bass, keyboards & piano, arrangement, electronic parts

Chris Hiegel :
Drums

“Chris, who has recently joined the « Amphetamin » project, plays all the drums on the new record. I had composed all the tracks at first, but Chris has managed to add his skills and personality to it while keeping the soul of each track that composes this album.

If I had to talk about my feelings about it, I guess I would say that it’s somehow a mix between my latest two records (At the dawn of twilight & A flood of strange sensations). It combines the melancholy of the first one with its arrangements, and the prog rock aspect of the second.
But of course, it has its own « colours », and new elements such as luminous and electronic parts.
This time, I conceived it as « a studio album », unlike the previous records.”

A big thank you to my friend Miléna V. for her backvocals on “Hephaestus” that gave me the opportunity to get what I had inside my head.
“A flood of strange sensations” is Amphetamin’s third record.

« Every album is different,
I decided to make this record myself.
This record will have a more uncluttered style,
as there won’t be guitar and synth lines at the same time.
The outcome will be rawer and the live performance more efficient.
However it will be nuanced, since I’ve spent some time working up new sounds,
In order to get different « colours » out of my guitar.
There will also be parts more dynamic than in « At the dawn of twilight », the previous album.
The album is bound to be rich,
And I think you’ll need a few listenings before fully grasping it.
When you listen to it, you’ll feel a range of emotions, strange ones sometimes.
You’ll switch from lighter parts to darker ones.
Actually a lot happens in one single song.
For the recording, I’ve only used one guitar, a Rickenbacker…  more

France is a country that has several bands with more alternative styles and one of them is Amphetamin, a band that comes from underground underground and is marked mainly by the dark vocals of its frontman Sebastian (a mixture of Scott Walker with Mikael Akerfeldt). He is also responsible for all creative and technical processes, all independently. The sound alternates well between post-rock and the heavier progressive of bands like Opeth.

Amphetamin has three discs, each of which has a different approach. The fourth record is scheduled for release later this year, promising again to bring a new perspective, this time incorporating some electronic elements. One of its principles is to never repeat yourself and to be challenging yourself . Andrew Rosario
