What a shit of a week it’s been.
I have lost count of the amount of shows that have been postponed or cancelled, but what I do know is I should be getting ready to party at Blacken Open Air this time next week, but instead I still don’t know if I will be allowed out my front door… It’s the word we currently live in, but that doesn’t mean we have to like it!

The Amenta have used their seven-year hiatus to methodically deconstruct and reimagine their already distinctive core sound: incorporating maximalist industrial black metal ballast, disturbingly cinematic ambient/noise textures, treated violin, dread acoustics and circuit-bent electronics into a labyrinthine set of infectious hymns to societal collapse which juxtapose dreamlike moments of strange calm…Continue Reading
