Neurot Recordings proudly announce that AMENRA have entered the studio this week to record their fourth full-length, Mass V.
Producing the record is the brilliant Billy Anderson (Eyehategod, Neurosis, Om, Swans, etc.) and for the setting, La Chapelle, an old chapel now turned professional studio, in the heart of the Belgian Ardennes. For AMENRA this is the ideal ground to record Mass V, their “heaviest and slowest album to this day” as per vocalist Colin Van Eeckhout. He continues to reveal how this record was “the hardest one for us to write and record, it nearly killed us. it’s the album we said we were never going to write.” Expect an absolutely crushing release from them later this year on their new home, Neurot Recordings.
As previously reported, Neurot Recordings founder and Neurosis guitarist/vocalist Steve Von Till commented “I am eagerly awaiting the sonically induced spirit quest that will be Mass V at the Church of Ra.” – and so are we!
AMENRA will gladly be interviewed about this recording process so if you are interested, please do not hesitate to get in touch and you can expect more rituals from the Church of Ra in the coming months.
