Amethyst by Magg Dylan
Magg Dylan is an alternative metal band from Virginia Beach USA, however there is nothing ordinary about them by any means. The subject matter of their music is drawn from the members’ personal life experiences such as addiction, relationships gone awry, and bullying. Amethyst is their debut album featuring ten alternative metal anthems which showcase the band’s emotional raw energy. It was produced by Bruce Jordan and Jonathan Dolese (Skywalker, Brave New World). Highlights on the album include Scarz written about bullying, Naked Alone In the Tub which covers depression after life hands you a series of overwhelming blows. The third single from the album Delusional which goes in-depth about singer Suzanne’s past battle with alcoholism and her path to recovery. This band has been through a lot over the years, and their songs reflect the struggles, defeats, and triumphs which have given this album a life of its own!
