The Amenta biography
Formed in reaction to the retrogression of the music climate in 2000, THE AMENTA continues to breathe new life into 'extreme metal' with its sophomore release n0n. The critically acclaimed masterpiece - which mixes intricate guitar riffs, gut-wrenchingly scathing vocals, and avant-garde ambiance - has propelled THE AMENTA to the international stage as a premier metal band, while also reflecting a clear evolution in style and lyrical content.

From 2004, when France's Listenable Records released the band's debut effort Occasus, the worldwide metal extreme metal scene took strong interest in THE AMENTA. The ten-track epic touches on themes of opposition to tradition; human stagnancy; and slave society fostered by religion and socio-political dogma; while destroying the listener with masterful riffing and melancholy ambiance. Occasus put THE AMENTA on the map: winning "Best New" from Terrorizer Magazine and Australian Kerrang!.

After touring Australia heavily with BEHEMOTH, ALCHEMIST and finally as a headliner, the band was ready to hit the studio again in October 2007. n0n, THE AMENTA's sophomore release through Listenable Records, reflects an evolution in sound and lyrical content from Occasus. While noise, radio chatter, and industrial soundscapes intertwined with hundreds of layered instrument tracks sets the musical base, lyrical themes of a vice-driven, evangelic, sheep like society overpower the stimuli of the listener. n0n is a global project, involving several studios in multiple countries, including guest appearances from Nergal (BEHEMOTH) Jason Mendonca (AKERCOCKE), Alice Daquet (SIR ALICE), and Alex Pope (RUINS), among others.

Following the completion of n0n, THE AMENTA toured Australia with THE BERZERKER. The album was unleashed on 18 and 20 October in Australia and Europe respectively via Listenable Records. n0n hit North American shores on 10 February 2009. THE AMENTA has continued to make 2009 the year of extreme metal. The band began the year by touring Europe extensively with DEICIDE, VADER, and SAMAEL on Winterfest 2009; which was followed by an extensive Australian tour with THE BERZERKER.

After completing the "Unleashing The Extreme Tour" in Australia with PSYCROPTIC and RUINS, THE AMENTA will hit North American shores for the "Monsters of Death Tour" with VADER in the winter. THE AMETNA will continue to deliver unrelenting brutality on an unprecedented scale to dissidents worldwide, while redefining extreme...

The Amenta Tech/Extreme Prog Metal

Review by UMUR
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

3 stars "Occasus" is the debut full-length studio album by Australian industrial death metal act The Amenta. The album was released through Listenable Records in July 2004. The 2007 re-release includes 4 bonus tracks. One of the tracks is a new composition while the 3 others are the entire tracklist from the self-released "Mictlan (2002)" EP.

The music on the album is industrial tinged death metal. The vocals are quite brutal yet intelligible. The tempo is mostly fast- to blasting but there are some mid-paced sections too. The inclusion of cold futuristic keyboards give the music a sci-fi sound that at times turn epic. Most tracks on the album are of this nature but the title track is an ambient industrial styled track. The tight and precise musicianship is a great asset to the album and it´s obvious that The Amenta are skilled musicians.

"Occasus" features a powerful and clear sound production, which suits the music well. Upon conclusion "Occasus" is a good quality debut album by The Amenta, and while there is still room for improvement in the songwriting department (the tracks could have been a bit more memorable) I still feel that a 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.
