Belgium's Amenra have returned with a new recording which continues their mixture of sludge, doom metal and hardcore and this is a review of their 2017 album "Mass VI" which was released by Neurot Recordings.
Atmospheric drones start off the album while clean playing can also be heard at times while the heavy riffs bring in elements of sludge and doom metal along with the vocals being hardcore style screams and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording.
Most of the tracks are very long and epic in length while melodic vocals are also added on some of the songs along with a brief use of spoken word parts and some of the riffing also mixes in elements of post metal as well as the guitar solos and leads being done in a very melodic fashion and when acoustic guitars are utilized they give the music more of a progressive feeling and all of the songs stick to a very slow direction.
Amenra creates another recording that remains true to their mixture of sludge, doom metal and hardcore, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover relationships, love, loss, pain and spirituality themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Amenra and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Children of The Eye" and "Daiken". 8 out of 10.
