    ‘Flesh is Heir’ is the third full-length album from The Amenta and is a bleak and dirty journey through mental decay and pressure. Death metal, black metal, noise and ambience are synthesised into a new sound. Organic and ugly, ‘Flesh is Heir’ is challenging music, not for the faint of heart.

Higher mind as a pill,
Dissolving in a gut,
Losing shape and form
Just primordial sludge,
An endorphic phosphene,
Projected on cinematic skull
A crystallized,
Perfect fucking nothing
Death at a plunger's push
Bloody across the canvas
A crystallized zero

Death a plunger's push
Reborn: Tabula Rasa
An artificial warmth
From diluted blood
Tail in teeth

Cortex stripped stumbling
Down the nervous system
Liminal - Minimal
A dream of teeth and claw
Reborn: Tabula Rasa
A dream of teeth and claw

The snake's escape
A vicious primal joy
Trading reason for reflex
And vagaries for void
Leave your weapons
At the doors of imperceptions
Tail in teeth

The snake: a crystallized zero
Perfect fucking nothing
The snake: a crystallized
Perfect fucking nothing
Tail in teeth

The death of the soul
And weakness on trial
An unconscious conviction
Reborn a reptile
Neocortex annul
A thumbs unyielding weight
Against the world's winds
A feathered serpent embrace
I have seen the greatest minds
Sedated and slumped
Sickly spinal shiver
In a cold-blooded dawn

A thawing of sluggish vein
And sudden rush of reason
Heading for the shallows
And crawl, gasping from swamp
In sweaty shrouds of sheets
Reptiles shed their scales


from Flesh is Heir, released March 22, 2013
