Amenra - Reveal More Details About New Album And Teaser

Amenra are preparing to release a new sludge mass this year. Mass VI is hitting stores on 20th October through Neurot Recordings. Below you'll find some imagery of the inner artwork of the record created by Stephan Vanfleteren as well as the teaser with some tormenting sounds.

"It took us a couple of years as always to find the right mindset to write an new album. Works of music whose creation was fuelled by pure necessity," Colin van Eeckhout explains. "We needed to write, at this point. Finding inspiration in depression, sorrow and despair. Levy found himself in a dark place for some time, where he shut himself off from everyone to write new music. It was the first Mass album he helped writing, and his being is felt throughout the entire album. Lebon, our drummer, celebrated the birth of his newborn son. We were all saddened by Mathieu's father's cancer and are mourning the loss of Lebon's beloved mother. And for me, personally, my firstborn son had a tumor removed from inside his head. It seriously shook my ground. Fate strikes and strokes. Where there is Love there is Pain."

Billy Anderson, the legendary American producer was chosen for Mass VI. The album was recorded in the Belgian Ardennes, a region of thick forests in the south-east of the country, where the band was snowed in for a week.

Expect the official cover art along with pre-orders soon.

Mr. Doctor
That little trailer sounded just like I expected. Soulcrushing.
