Atreyu Inspired Creation Of The Amity Affliction

The Amity Affliction

(TeamRock Radio) The Amity Affliction vocalist and bass player Ahren Stringer recalls the moment Atreyu turned him from a young punk into a metalhead. The Australian singer says Atreyu's track Ain't Love Grand - from 2002 debut album Suicide Notes And Butterfly Kisses - struck a chord with him and eventually led him to form his own band.

On the third episode of Metal Hammer: In Residence on Spotify, Stringer was asked to pick the song that changed his life. He says: "Honestly that was the first record where I'd heard screaming and singing and metal and breakdowns all in one and I fell in love.

"That was when I started drifting away from listening to punk rock all the time and started listening to metal and screamo and emo bands that were all coming out of the woodwork then.

"Poison The Well, Atreyu, Hatebreed - everyone that had passed by and I hadn't paid attention to. Atreyu was one of the main reasons I wanted to start this band." Read more here.
