Editorial Reviews

Formed in 1999 in the forsaken fields of West-Flanders, Belgium, Amenra has conjured unholy masses and paved their own headstrong way ever since, spreading their vision of a world of unseen mystique that's out of touch with the past, present and future. Amenra's confounding and compelling sound mixes surreal melodies and warped subtleties with churning rhythms, pummeling riffs and crushing dynamics. Having found a home with Neurot Recordings, the group sets ambitions and expectations high for their fourth full-length album Mass V. Their post-modern vision of music, consisting of droning, repetitive chords alternated by gut-wrenching howls, make experienced listeners renounce their definitions of music, perhaps even their whole belief systems. Amenra puts heart and soul into every note, word and image, changing the course of peoples' lives in the process.

5.0 out of 5 stars Potential 2012 metal album of the year December 28, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Amenra is a post/sludge/doom metal band that recently signed to Neurot Records. Neurot Records is managed by the forefathers of post-metal, Neurosis. Like Isis, Cult of Luna, and The Ocean, Amenra is heavily influenced by Neurosis but add their own twist to the genre. Being signed to the record label of a band who has been the inspiration for your existence might put a lot of pressure on some bands but thankfully, this was not the case with Mass V.

Mass V is best summed up as music to listen to while the apocalypse is unfolding. The songs from this album create a bleak landscape of despair, pain, and agony. While some albums try to tell people that life is good and everything is peachy, Amenra reminds those brave enough to listen to this record just how messed up life really is. Trying to rate each track individually is pointless because this album is best listened to as a whole.

The vocals are a mix of cleans and shrieks. They sound as if the vocalist, Colin H. Van Eeckhout, was being tortured during the recording process. The guy is basically shrieking/screaming as if his life depended on it. The rest of the instruments help to create a wall of sound so heavy that it could possibly destroy a small city. With that being said, anyone who is a fan of heavy, crushing, or brutal metal should listen to this ASAP. Amenra easily delivers one of the best metal albums of 2012.

Comparable to:

Cult of Luna - The Beyond
Neurosis - Through Silver in Blood
Isis - Oceanic
Time to Burn - Is.Land
