Amahiru, the band featuring Frédéric Leclercq (Kreator, ex-Dragonforce) and Saki (Mary's Blood, Nemophilia), has released their first single "Hours". The band's debut self-titled album is due out November 27 and features a guest appearance by the immensely talented (and gone far too soon) ex-Cynic drummer Sean Reinert.
Regarding how Amahiru sounds, Leclercq had the following to say.
"I'm influenced by many artists, pretty much anything I hear I can consider an influence and music should be the reflection of that. With Amahiru, I personally wanted to do something groovy and melodic and still metal/hard rock. We didn't want to make 12 songs sounding the same. Saki and I have a lot in common musically and it was really easy to work together in the same direction."
