“too powerful to be taken for granted” – BrooklynVegan
After spending part of 2018 sharing the stage with Neurosis and Converge, AMENRA are on the road yet again—this time with doom metal torchbearers YOB and metal bastions VOIVOD. Tour kicks off today in Minneapolis and will span just about 4 weeks – check out the tour routing below.
Earlier this year, AMENRA announced a forthcoming documentary chronicling the band’s 20-year legacy. Filmed and edited by Bobby Cochran, the documentary provide viewers with a glimpse behind the veil that shrouds one of metal’s most spellbinding acts. Oscillating between high-octane live clips, intimate interviews, and never-before-seen footage of the band in their hometown and across the globe, the Amenra XX Documentary casts a light on a band that continues to conjure beauty from the world’s shadows. The full documentary will premiere in Summer 2019 via Revolver Magazine and a teaser video is viewable here.
AMENRA’s music is a disciplined study of contrasts that has been ongoing for two decades. Torturous darkness coexists with luminous artistry, thunderous crescendos are hightailed by tiptoeing refrains. With 2017’s Mass VI (Neurot Recordings) AMENRA highlighted those contradictions with a captivating boldness. Colossal riffs shake shake listeners to their core while singer Colin H. Van Eeckhout shrieks so agonizingly that one can almost picture him onstage, clawing at himself, back turned to the world. It is this boisterous isolation that makes AMENRA one of heavy music’s most captivating acts.
