The Amenta are proud to announce the release of “V01D/CHOKE HOLD” through Listenable Records.
Combining the full 16 track digital release, “V01D” (originally released for download from www.theamenta.com) with the title track and cover of Godflesh’s ‘Christbait Rising’ from the “Chokehold” E.P. (released in 2012 on Itunes by Listenable Records) this release is the first physical release of all these recordings.
Both were released as placeholders before the 2013 release of the new album by The Amenta, “Flesh is Heir” and show two completely new sides of The Amenta.
“V01D’ is an epic, melodic hymn which is worlds away from the angular dissonance of previous The Amenta releases. It leaves your so-called “black metal” for dead.“Choke Hold” is a dirty, violent re-imagining of Godflesh’s sound circa “Streetcleaner”. The lyrics are a blues because repetition is the only way through your skull.
“V01D/CHOKE HOLD” will be available exclusively from The Amenta on the upcoming European tour with Obituary, Macabre and Psycroptic as well as from the Listenable Records store (http://shop.listenable.net/)
This is an extremely limited pressing.
THE AMENTA will release their new album on March 25th
