Amen is the second album by the American band Amen and their major label debut, released on September 21, 1999 by I Am/Roadrunner Records. The first track on the album, "Coma America," became the band's first single. In 2001, the album was re-released with 4 new bonus tracks.

Amen was recorded by Casey Chaos on vocals, Shannon Larkin on drums, Sonny Mayo and Paul Fig on guitar, and John Fahnestock a.k.a. Tumor on bass. The album was produced by Ross Robinson who had worked with Casey Chaos and helped him get signed to Roadrunner Records, and was released through Ross Robinson's imprint label, I Am. The album sold around 15,000 copies in its first year.[2]

Releases[edit]

In 2001 the album was re-released by Roadrunner Records and included the four unreleased songs from the single of "Coma America". At this point, Amen had already switched to Virgin Records.[3]

In 2007, Metal Mind Productions re-released the album in a new digipack edition on gold disc, digitally remastered using 24-Bit process, with a limited run of 2000 hand-numbered copies. [4]

In both cases, the band was not involved with the releases.
