“Cyborg Amok resides somewhere between the brilliance of twilight and the apocalyptic darkness. Their gothic infused synth-rock sound delivers the listener to a panorama of synthetic waves, twisted organic tones and a slightly pop crust … the language angels speak in the darkness.”
Having been compared to Sisters of Mercy, Clan of Xymox, Peter Murphy and Depeche Mode, their music cuts a path into the dark shadows of the past and the future.
Cyborg Amok is Greg Bullock (lead vocal/synthesizers) and Brydon Bullock (drums/vocals).
Greg Bullock, a poet and keyboardist formerly with the bands RealEyes, Shamen and the Antoine Poncelet Band. As the principal songwriter and voice of Cyborg Amok, Greg continues his journey suspended in dark waves crashing over striking landscapes.
Brydon Bullock emerges as an up and coming drummer on the local music scene. He is the drummer/backing vocals for the grunge/punk band Bad Parenting. He has performed in NYC and on the Jersey shore with Rockit Live, as well as, countless jazz, concert and pit band performances. Brydon adds a contemporary element to the Cyborg Amok landscape with solid grooves and strong backing vocals.
Post-Punk.com: “From Kether to Malkuth, Darkwave duo Cyborg amok’s sound traverses between light and dark, with gothic-tinged synth music that shimmers with the brilliance of 80’s art-rock and pop”.
The Viking in the Wilderness said, “US band Cyborg Amok are out with the album “Cyborg Amok”, and this is a production for fans of rock music to take note of.”
Sounds & Shadows, Ken Magerman commented, “ A heavy hitting dystopian future progressive gothic style, I immediately was put in mind of Palais Ideal by the complexity and science fiction concepts. Greg Bullock has a dream whisper voice and a bardic soul. I feel in love with the purity of a father and son bridging generations to find a place of compromise between their influences”.
Aural Aggravation, Christopher Nosnibor said, “The evidence here is that they’re doing everything right and need to forge ahead and capitalize on their work so far, because this is a strong dark album.”
Elektro Vox, Canis Lewis writes, “Cyborg Amok bring a sense of style and new discovery in contrast to a retro journey of electronics and rock that makes for a pleasant indulgence of musical storytelling.”
Kainklangmusik Magazine, Karsten Zakrzewski described Burden Away as, “Beautiful clear drums, guitars and electro sounds, which is classic goth synth rock, the narrative dark voice fits perfectly”.
