Staff review by
Originality is the word that I must use to describe the new phenomenon, directly from the wallabies country, The Amenta. Because first The Amenta is original for sure, but secondly because I can bet a beer with you that this band could become soon one of this bands that all the metal-heads will respect and love. A strong Dark/Death metal with aggressive riffs and tempo, and really strong vocals, with a touch of Indus which is the source of this originality.

Guest review by
Ferocious primeval Death metal played with explosive blast beats, threateningly fast tempo-ed guitars, dominantly powerful raspy vocals and ambient synth elements lay in wait for the listener of the 2004 release "Occasus" from the band "The Amenta".

A highly innovative follow up to their acclaimed Demo of 2002 "Mictlan", The Amenta play with crushing efficiency paving a new force in extreme music. Influenced, but far from a clone of any previous band, The Amenta have inclinations of death, black, industrial, thrash metal embodied in their brand of powerful chaotic intensity. For all its extremity, The Amenta know how to slam the breaks on just at the appropriate moment to provide the listener with beautiful sound scapes of syth ambience before again jumping into a whirlwind of perfectly balanced brutality. This synth ambience too plays a prominent part in the bare bones structure of their raw music tracks, enhancing an already masterful music and helping the band forge their exquised sounds.
