Amebix , formed in England in 1978 as "The Band with No Name", were a band that many consider to have started the sub genre crust punk. Their music blended anarcho-punk and heavy metal . Such notable bands as Sepultura , Neurosis , Napalm Death , Deviated Instinct , and Gallhammer have paid homage to the band. The ‘Risen’ DVD will be independently released, therefore they plan to sell a limited amount of copies on-line in keeping with the DIY spirit of the project. If you are interested you can place a ‘pre-order’ here for one of the limited editions. The DVD will include original band interviews and live footage, as well as interviews with Jello Biafra (ex-Dead Kennedys), NEUROSIS, and Max Cavalera (Soulfly, Cavalera Conspiracy, ex-Sepultura). There will be a collection of unseen pictures.
