Song Review: “Shine On” by The Amity Affliction

I love The Amity Affliction so much! I found the band through Sirius XM Octane when they first started playing their song “Open Letter” and I was so hooked! They’re from Australia and I’ve talked about them a lot less than I probably should on here because these guys are really awesome! Every song that they release I like a lot! I saw the cover photo for this song first on Facebook before I even heard it and I instantly got really excited for it! I think it took me three days after it was out on Octane to finally hear it.

This song is called “Shine On” and it sounds a lot more mellower. It’s not a ballad, but yet it’s not as powerful in sound overall to be considered heavy either. I didn’t think I would like it as much because I do love their heavier songs more than any other band (and that’s saying something!) the harsh vocals do give it that edge, but in a way not enough to lose the feeling of it. In every almost every artist or band I’ve come across in the last six years, they have a signature sound. The Amity Affliction have one clear stable. There’s always a choir somewhere, usually it’s a children’s choir. There’s nothing wrong with it. I love it. It is always a great add-in during live shows.

So what do you think of The Amity Affliction? How do you like their new single?

  1. This is the first time I’ve heard these guys! Thanks for the introduction! This is my kind of music! I love bands like this. Some of my favorite bands are Papa Roach, Pop Evil, Skillet, Shinedown, and Hollywood Undead. I love many, many more though. I write about them in my blog. I haven’t written a review in a month but I have a few and I write for a music site. My first article for that site was written on Bon Jovi and the next one coming out is on Papa Roach. This is a great song! I will have to download it on my iTunes when I get paid. Here is my review on Pop Evil: My next review is going to be on Shinedown, which I’m hoping to have done by the first week of December. This is my post on Bon Jovi:
    Great Post! I look forward to reading more!


    1. Yay!! We basically love the same type of music!! I hope you like The Amity Affliction. If you ever need any new music I’ll send you some suggestions. I love a lot of international heavy metal bands than American ones. 😀
