Bio

Formed in 2000 by guitarist Erik Miehs and sampler Timothy Pope, THE AMENTA quickly came to embody a new movement in both the worldwide, and local extreme metal scenes. Fusing industrial noisescapes, brutal distortion, and mind numbingly complex riffs, THE AMENTA defined its distinctiveness early in its career. The band recorded and released the Mictlan MCD in 2002. Four tracks depicting mourning and intellectual decay set to unsettling industrial ambiance: Mictlan set the standard for THE AMENTA's future releases. In addition to excellent reviews and significant praise across the globe, the MCD also gained the attention of France's Listenable Records; in turn, setting the stage for the evolution of THE AMENTA from a local band to a group of professional artists.

Fantastic band... a completely unique sound and one of Australia's most consistently uncompromising yet progressive metal groups. Vermin slays!
