As the worldwide release of their Neurot Recordings debut Mass V nears release at the end of this month, today Belgium’s ethereal sludge spiritualists AMENRA release a brand new official video from the anticipated opus.
The video for “Nowena I 9.10” was filmed using stop-motion animation created by Stef Cuypers and edited by Stef Cuypers and AMENRA guitarist Mathieu Vandekerckhove. “Nowena I 9.10” is the third and possibly most tension-filled song found on Mass V, the epic six-minute anthem also featuring guest vocals by Neurosis’ Scott Kelly.

“Nowena I 9.10” lyrics:
the darkest hours will seem long
they will feel like for ever
then new light breaks into dawn
novena burns for my brothers at night
a flame that burns the bodies of light
brothers burn. I see the fire in their eyes.
the past is your now
the present now passed
now is the time
(everything awaits you and the light will let you)
AMENRA will release Mass V in Europe on November 26th and in North America on November 27th, their first release as part of the Neurot Recordings family.
