If you still haven't seen The Amenta live, you better check out one of their upcoming shows because the Australian industrial death metal band has announced that they will not be playing live for the foreseeable future after their already scheduled performances. At this point, the band is also not sure if they will work on new material to follow this year's Flesh Is Heir.
Australian industrial death metallers The Amenta have a couple of informations to share with us. First of all, the band will be touring across their homeland this coming July, where they will be playing in support of their latest new album Flesh Is Heir, released on March 22nd via Listenable Records. In other news, The Amenta also presents a brand new lyric video for the song "Sewer", which comes from the above mentioned album.
Later this month, The Amenta's new opus Flesh Is Heir will be released for public consumption. It will be the band's third album and follow-up to 2008's n0n. The band also released a new EP, Teeth, last month as a taster of the album. For now, you can preview the new material from Flesh Is Heir on the video below.
Australian industrial death metallers The Amenta are currently working on their third full-length and the follow-up to 2008's n0n. The album, entitled Flesh Is Heir, is currently being written, recorded, pre-produced and planned for an early 2012 release.
After concluding a successful Australian Tour with Behemoth, Job For A Cowboy and Goatwhore, Australian metallers The Amenta have begun working on an EP which will function as an introduction to the new line-up and as a teaser for the upcoming third full length. Tentatively titled V01D, the EP will feature re-recorded songs from both full length albums, an unreleased Occasus era track, various instrumentals and experiments, a cover and multiple video clips, live shots and extraneous media.
Sydney, Australia's premier extreme metal unit, The Amenta recently announced the departure of vocalist Jarrod Krafczyk and bassist Dale Harrison. The two have been replaced by Cain Cressall (Malignant Monster) and Dan Quinlan (Pain Division) respectively. The Amenta will showcase its new lineup at Against The Grain Festival (September 19th), and a series of Australian shows before the band embarks on the Monsters Of Death Tour in North America this fall with Vader, Decrepit Birth, Warbringer, Augury and Success Will Write Apocalypse Across The Sky.
Keyboardist Timothy Pope made the following remarks on the lineup changes: "Firstly we would like to thank Jarrod and Dale for all their hard work for the band. They both put in amazing effort throughout their time with us. We would also like to congratulate Dale on his impending fatherhood. The split was very amicable and we wish them all the best. That said we are very excited to have Cain and Dan on board.
Australian metallers The Amenta have posted a new song, entitled "Slave", on their MySpace page.
This new song comes off the band's new album, entitled "n0n", which will be released on October 20th via Listenable Records. The album was mixed at The Vault Studios in Sydney, Australia with longtime engineer Lachlan Mitchell (Nazxul). Mastering for the album took place at Studios 301 with Australia's premier mastering engineer Steve Smart.
According to a Listenable Records press release: "n0n", the long awaited follow up to the debut "Occasus", sees The Amenta redefining extreme music. Rather than relying on the cliché shit in which other bands are content wallow, The Amenta have constructed an album built on new ideas, new concepts, new sounds and new techniques. "n0n" is the fusion of whitenoise, shards of dissonant guitars and dense layers of radio chatter. Lyrically, "n0n" is a newscast, showing you the shit around you. Suicide bombers and evangelists, freeways and dead ends. "n0n" stands as an indictment on todays media and technology addicted society.
The album will be released on October 20th via Listenable Records.
