The Amenta/Flesh Is Heir/Listenable Records/2013 CD Review


  The  Amenta  are  a  band  from  Australia  that  has  been  featured  before  in t his  zine  with  a  musical style  that  combines  industrial,  black,  and  brutal  death  metal  together  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2013  album  "Flesh  Is  Heir"  which  was  released  by  Listenable  Records.

  Drums  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  drumming  along  with  a  great  amount  of  brutal  sounding  blast  beats  being  thrown  into  the  music,  while  the  programming  and  samples  bring  a  very  dark  industrial  noise  sound  to  the  recording,  as  for  the b ass  playing  it  has  a  very  dark  tone  with  riffs  that  follow  the  riffing  that  are  coming  out  of  the  guitars.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  riffs  that  combine  industrial,  black  and  brutal  death  metal  together  to  create  a  sound  of  their  own  with  a  good  amount  of  melody  being  thrown  into  the  riffing,  and  there  are  little  to  no  guitar  solos  or  leads  present  on  this  recording.

  Vocals  range  from  deep  death  metal  growls,  industrial style  vocals  and  some  spoken  word  samples  in  addition  there  is  a  brief  use  of  clean  singing,  while  the  lyrics  cover  Terror,  Mythology  and  Philosophy,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  strong,  powerful,  heavy,  brutal  and  professional  sound  to  it.  

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  The  Amenta  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of t his  band,  you  should  enjoy  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Flesh  Is  Heir"  "A  Womb  Tone"  "Cell"  and  "Tabula  Rosa".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
