The Amenta: Flesh is Heir Australian Tour 2013

With special guests... Ruins!
Tour Dates: 
11/07/2013 - 14/07/2013

This music is for the true adventurer. It is extreme music. It is not industrial. It is not death metal. It is not black metal. It is The Amenta. So state the band on their own website and it’s true. Definitely not for the faint hearted and not even for the majority of the metal hordes. This is specialized, head-fucking, sonic battery.

For the past eleven years, the institution known as The Amenta has steadfastly refused to do anything by the book. With a strong desire for experimentation and the avant-garde, and a sadistic pre-occupation with all things ugly, decayed and rotten, the band have consistently released challenging and ground breaking material beginning with Occasus, through to nOn, the multimedia landmark that was Vo1D and the digital EP Chokehold, finally arriving with this years, Flesh Is Heir. Flesh..., isn’t merely a record, it’s an experience. Huge sculptures of sound built up from decayed choir loops, percussion and the dissonant rearrangement of traditional rock instruments (drums, bass, guitars) lead to an overall more organic but also terrifying journey into a realm of consciousness that is a ‘constant war in the human psyche between the faction that desires obliteration and the faction that struggles in the mud.’

At once, ugly and beautiful, organic yet electronic, lightening fast but also crushingly slow, and always dark as pitch.

The Amenta will perform four visually intense and aurally damaging shows at the venues below this July.
