Amethyst can be described as a band that navigates through the waters of a dark gloomy rock, kind of a melancholic sound with progressive hints that delivers dramatic melodies, embellished with a beautiful female voice that envisions magnificent fantasy worlds.
Based in Costa Rica, the band was founded in 2015 by Geovanny Leitón (lead guitar) and Elías Vega (bassist) as a new spin from their previous bands Cántiga and Nebula, which had been around for more than 15 years, gaining the experience required to make it in the international metal scene.
The band’s line-up is formed by Fabiola Salas (vocals), Geovanny Leitón (guitar), Kendal Rodriguez (keyboards), Elías Vega (bass) and JC Soto (drums). The band’s name reflects the music they play, as the amethyst stone is one of the hardest minerals on earth, it is also a delicate jewel, used since ancient times to heal, to protect and also in magical rituals. This is the sense of Amethyst music as well.
The Timekeeper is the first release from the upcoming album, and it is a song to think about the briefness of life, you can check the song’s video on this link Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=npwmudUu4k0 Website: www.amethystzone.com Facebook: @amethystcr
