AMENRA Prepare for North American Tour with YOB + VOIVOD, Release Documentary Trailer
“…an appropriately stakes-raising effort, interweaving hypnotic, textured elegance and bracing, race-against-the-dying-of-the-light heaviness without ever sacrificing the sense that something profound and transcendent is going down.” - Decibel Magazine
“Amenra may be dark, but they are also darkly triumphant.” - Revolver
After spending part of 2018 sharing the stage with Neurosis and Converge, AMENRA are hitting the road yet again—joining doom metal torchbearers YOB and metal bastions VOIVOD this Spring. Amenra has also announced a forthcoming documentary chronicling the band’s 20-year legacy.
Watch a sneak preview of Amenra XX Documentary now via YouTube.
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, theAmenra 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.
AMENRA’s music is a disciplined study of contrasts that has been ongoing for nearly two decades. Torturous darkness coexists with luminous artistry, thunderous crescendos are hightailed by tiptoeing refrains. With 2017’s Mass VI, 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.
Amenra will be touring throughout North America beginning in March. Their latest LP, Mass VI, is available everywhere via Neurot Recordings.
