Band of the Day: Amenra

This band is so fucking heavy, that's about all I can say. Experimental, sludgy, at times absolutely crushing. They have been around since 1999, and have put out a very interesting catalogue to date.

I missed seeing these guys at the recent Converge/Neurosis show, but everyone was so affected by them that they couldn't stop talking about them. I had somehow never heard of the Belgian experimental outfit, so I checked them out to see what the fuss was all about. Usually, I try to stay aware of bands on Neurot Recordings but somehow these guys slipped through the cracks.

Well, they are about as sick as they come, listening to this will fill you with the proper amounts of dread and despair. If you're into that kind of thing, this is the band for you. A nice mix of doom metal, almost funeral doom sounding at times, post-rock influences.

Check them out on Bandcamp.

Here are a few of my favorite songs.
