Metallurgical Fire The Amenta mix very strong vocals and a relentless percussive attack. This is great stuff. Favorite track: Junky.

YomaBarr It's not an easy everyday listen, and it's not "industrial" metal even if it may seem so at first. This is pure madness (though there be method in’t), and it's their own madness and their own metal, and it's uncanny.

Their stuff should be heard. Well perhaps it needs some special plugs to connect. I apparently have one. Favorite track: Nihil (Remix).

Dean Pearson Fucking ball-tearer. There needs to be more of this. Hard to fault, every player is on the money and the production is spot on.

    “Chokehold / “V01D” combines two releases from The Amenta on one disc. 2011’s monumental “V01D” release, featuring exclusive tracks, an ARMOURED ANGEL cover, re-recorded favourites, ambient experiments and remixes, is paired with 2012’s “Chokehold”. “Chokehold” features a cover of the GODFLESH classic, ‘Christbait Rising’ and the original track, ‘Choke Hold’, written in the style of the “Streetcleaner” aesthetic, as well as live tracks and a remix. Originally released digitally, this is a rare and sought after physical release of these two important releases from Australia’s nastiest band.

V01D We drown in the bile Of a frustrated birth A knife grows in every back Jaws clenched and tongue bitten These are all wasted words These are all a wastrels words Meanings you will never find Hidden, lurking between the lines We are revolving to Our drain We are revolving to Our drain I've lifted my chin And ignored the noose But there is gravity In the centre of the void The seed of its end In every creation The flickering ember Of a sullen cremation Heels in the tug of tide We shudder on shore Lands end And what have we got? Nothing but memory Success or failure? Gathering our rags We walk into the waves We are revolving to Our drain We are revolving to Our drain The brightest light Will gutter, quicker The wax will stifle the wick As we burn For the yearning ember There is nobility in flame For the faltering fire There is only shame We feel the whine Sharply, in our teeth And all our pasts Chained to our ankles This is not another Slit wrist suicide It’s our future drowning In the bile of cyanide We are revolving to Our drain We are revolving to Our drain We drown in the bile Of a frustrated birth A knife grows in every back Jaws clenched and tongue bitten Drowning in the currents Of another fleeting void I’ve sunk dreamless At the mercy of sleep The brightest light Will gutter, quicker The wax will stifle the wick As we burn For the yearning ember There is nobility in flame For the faltering fire There is only shame
