No Gods No Masters

Arise…Amebix has officially called it quits for the final time. From the time that this group came together in 1978, they have been doing things own their own terms. On a personal level, ever since 1981 I have been a huge fan of theirs. I never got to see them in the 80’s, so in 2009 when I got a chance to see their first ever show in America I was ultra hyped. What was so fucking killer about that night was the energy in the room, and Amebix were brilliant (I felt 13 again)! As human beings, they were so humble and kind it made their music even better that night. Honestly, that was the first night that Meghan and I looked at each other and realized we wanted to start something like CVLT Nation. Amebix’s last album, Sonic Mass, still gets constant spins in our HQ. Today we want to celebrate one of the greatest bands to ever do it with a huge post featuring the Arise movie, photos from their 2009 L.A. show, plus a vintage download…Let’s all shout No Gods No Masters! It goes down after the jump…

AMEBIX OFFICIAL STATEMENT – STIG C MILLER – FIRSTLY THE LAST FEW YEARS HAVE BEEN A DIFFICULT TIME FOR ME – BIG CHANGES & HEALTH ISSUES WHICH I’M BATTLING ON A DAILY BASIS…FOR ME PERSONALLY FOR THE LAST 3 YEARS I STILL (STUPIDLY I GUESS] LOVE AMEBIX AND WHAT WE DO… THERE IS NO DESIRE ON MY PART TO SPLIT UP THE BAND {AND APPARENTLY AFTER JUST SPEAKING TO ROY NOT ON HIS PART EITHER]. I THINK OF AMEBIX AS SOMETHING THAT IS BIGGER THAN ALL OF US, AN IDEA WE ALL SERVE, A PARTNERSHIP, THINGS SEEM TO HAVE VEERED AWAY FORM THIS IN THE LAST FEW YEARS…AS I SAID TO MY BROTHER WE NEED TO SIT DOWN AND TALK ABOUT THIS FACE TO FACE UNTIL THAT TIME I’M NOT MAKING A LAST CALL ON THIS… FORGIVE US OUR FOLLIES – “NO GODS NO MASTERS!” – STIG
