Biography

Australia

The Amenta are an Industrial Death Metal band from Australia. They evolved from a black metal band known as Crucible of Agony, changing their name to The Amenta in 2001. Over their career their musical style has shifted noticeably; the band’s first album Occasus, released in 2004, was noticeably more influenced by blackened death metal, while in later releases the band’s industrial element has become more prominent.

The band released their debut album Occasus in 2004. The lineup on the recording was Cessium 137 (vocals; real name Mark Bevan), Ethion (guitars; real name Erik Miehs), Endrin (bass; real name Dale Harrison), Diazanon (drums; real name Dave Haley (also of Psycroptic)) and Chlordane (keyboards and programming; real name Timothy Pope). Joe Haley from Psycroptic toured with the band as a second guitarist during this era. Cessium left the band in 2006 and was replaced by Jarrod Krafczyk. Robin Stone also became the band’s drummer at some point in this period, likely due to Haley’s other committments.

In 2008, the new lineup of the band (Krafczyk, Miehs, Harrison, Stone and Pope) released the album n0n, now using their real names. n0n also featured guest appearances from Nergal of Behemoth, Alice Daquet of Sir Alice and Jason Mendonca of Akercocke, among others.

Krafczyk and Harrison left the band in 2009. The current lineup of the band, as of 2011, is:
