The Amenta are a band from Australia that has been featured before with a musical style that mixes blackened death metal with industrial and noise and this is a review of their 2012 ep "Chokehold" which was released by Listenable Records.
Drum programming ranges from slow to mid paced beats, while the sampling and programming bring in elements of industrial, avant garde and noise into the music, as for the bass playing it has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced beats that combine black, death and industrial metal together mixed in with a great amount of distorted parts and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals range from deep death metal growls, black metal screams and industrial style vocals, while the lyrics cover dark, hateful and occult themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording along with a mixture of studio and live tracks, in addition some of the songs are long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great recording from The Amenta and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Christ Bait Rising" which is a Godflesh cover and "Sekem". RECOMMENDED BUY.
