Amenra Premiere “Voor Immer” Music Video

Amenra have premiered a new video for their new song “Voor Immer.” This track is from the band’s new album “De Doorn,” which will be released on June 25.

Colin H. van Eeckhout commented:

“‘Voor Immer‘ (‘For Ever’) was one of the first songs we have written for ‘De Doorn‘. We played it for the very first time in 2018 on the city square of Dixmude, West Flanders Belgium. Accompanied by the carillon, its bells a typical instrument from Belgium and the low countries, we connected the earth with the sky. It was initially written for a commemoration ceremony of the ending of the first world war.

Images of widows and mothers bereft of their sons. Destroyed cities and whom was left to die. Finding strength and courage to rebuild what once was there, without what was theirs.

The last time we played it live was in Menen, West Flanders Belgium end 2019. That night we gathered and burnt all our unacknowledged loss. Revealing by fire the 20feet high bronze Amenra statue glowing red, a symbol of hope.

This is a song about finding that hope, the strength to carry on. Its content ever present in the world today.”

Notably, the 2019 show that the vocalist mentioned will be available to stream on June 27. Tickets can be found HERE.

Amenra Premiere “De Evenmens” Music Video

Amenra have premiered a new video for their new song “De Evenmens.” This track is from the band’s new album “De Doorn,” which will be released on June 25. Vocalist Colin H. van Eeckhout commented:

“We are only here for a split second in history. This song is about finding the answer within the question, man’s search for his place here on earth. A journey of sorrow with mere moments of beauty and happiness and this all in relation to his or her fellowman. To accept what is. Our brother Dehn Sora sculpted the digital world where Everman dwells, protected by its thorns, wounded by the others. Sacrificing blood of gold.”

Amenra To Stream “Le Cercle” Concert In December

Amenra will be streaming their “Le Cercle“ performance on December 12. That show was filmed over the summer in Kortrijk, Belgium.

The band commented:

“On a summer night this year we all came together on a meadow in our hometown, Kortrijk, to play our latest album, ‘Mass VI‘ in its entirety. This recorded performance was as a part of the ‘European Metal Alliance‘ online festival, and was the last concert we would be playing with our bass player, Levy Seynaeve.

For one last time the circle of that AMENRA era was complete. We would now like to provide you with another opportunity to view this memorable meeting of friends. It was only us, and a crew of extremely talented friends. The sparse natural setting, special light set-up and drone footage makes for a unique concert experience like never before.

A link to be replaced in this chain of strength.

A circle of fire to be drawn over and over again.”

Tickets can be purchased HERE.

We are looking forward to work with this more than capable team, and are eager to see where it will lead us. Our new record will see its first light mid 2021. Ever onwards.”
