AMENRA - Mass V CD

€16.00

"It does not seem fair to judge this record in the way one judges most records. It is what it is, something disturbingly other and yet something restlessly familiar. 'Mass V' proves better than ever why Amenra are not just a band but, in many ways, a faith and a symptom of nature. This truly is the music of prayer, and Amenra are the preachers that the world so desperately needs. For that reason alone it necessitates only the highest of praise."

"It does not seem fair to judge this record in the way one judges most records. It is what it is, something disturbingly other and yet something restlessly familiar. 'Mass V' proves better than ever why Amenra are not just a band but, in many ways, a faith and a symptom of nature. This truly is the music of prayer, and Amenra are the preachers that the world so desperately needs. For that reason alone it necessitates only the highest of praise."

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.
