There are two bands with this name: 1) Amon Ra are a hard rock band from Asturias, Spain 2) Amon Ra started in an era that was very confusion in Germany. The Wall came down and 'ossies' and 'wessies' came together. This group from Bamberg, Germany also combines the different cultures of the country. The singer even has his roots in America, and as a result his vocals are without any accent. With the inspiration of Rush, Dream Theater, Kansas and Rick Wakeman (according to the booklet), a great mixture of musical ingredients and fantasy is the result.
