The title track is, as drummer Don White has commented, "kind of poppy", and showcases the sweeter side of D'Ath's unique vocal style, though the imagery is still dark. Unlike Skeptics III, the whole of Amalgam is equal to the sum of its parts, and for me three of those parts are what make the album shattering: 'Heathery Men', a thunderous military anthem about Culloden (or something), which, like 'Agitator' on Skeptics III, denies you the satisfaction of a climax into chaos, switching at the last possible moment into a doomed soldier's lilting lament for his love; 'Pack Ice', an evocation of Scott perishing in the Antarctic amid the play of David D'Ath's brogue and banshee wails, the ghostship winds of John Halvorsen's guitar, the stab-and-recoil rhythm, and the tectonic crush of the drums; and 'And We Bake', an impossible sunrise. The Skeptics had their beginnings in the early 1980s, emerging from Palmerston North. Ihr Amazon Music-Konto ist derzeit nicht mit diesem Land verknüpft.

We're not too keen on playing and losing money; breaking even is fine but losing... We'd play more in New Zealand if it wasn't for that. Alexander Turnbull Library. The existence of the Skeptics does a lot for my faith in human diversity, for my trust that there are mute inglorious Miltons out there; and as the great Matthew Hyland once wrote, there's no logical reason why a town like Palmerston North, or a planet like Earth, should have produced a band as staggering as this.
