Biography

Kortrijk, West-Flanders, Belgium (1999 – present)

Formed in the forsaken fields of Kortrijk, West-Flanders, Belgium, Amenra has been conjuring unholy masses and paving their own headstrong way since 1999. Spreading their vision of a world that is out of touch with its past, present and future, they take their adepts through a world of unseen mystique. Their postmodern vision of music, existing of droning, repetitive chords alternated by gut-wrenching hauls can make an experienced listener renounce his definition of music, perhaps even his whole belief system. Amenra puts heart and soul into every note, word and image, and changes the course of people’s lives everywhere their path leads.

Recent history has shown an extremely confident and focused Amenra. Beside touring on their own and with Neurosis, the band has been branching out and taking modest steps onto what has previously been virgin territory to them with an acoustic record, a book which vulnerably offers their heart and inspiration, and various art exhibitions. Amenra forges their path while constantly gaining followers, members of the Church of Ra, a sect, now thousands in numbers.

Amenra’s confounding and compelling sound that mixes surrealist melody and warped subtleties with churning rhythms, pummeling riffs and crushing dynamics stands on it’s own. Having found a home with Neurot Recordings, ambitions and expectations for their upcoming release, Mass V, are high.
