Amenra Releases "À Mon Âme" Video

Neurot Recordings act Amenra has just released a stunningly personal thirteen-minute-long video for the epic track, “À Mon Âme.” Check it out below, courtesy of Nowness.com.

Amenra teamed up with fashion photographer Willy Vanderperre and director of photography for the video, taken from most recent LP, "Mass V." It may not be what you have come to expect from the cult crafters of discordance, but what is Amenra if not a master of defying expectation?

The band comments: "It is not at all like the sort of visuals we usually present; it is more a case study, or a visual interpretation of the band, a little piece of concept art, if you will. The idea they [Willy Vanderperre and director of photography Nicolas Karakatsanis] had was stripping us of everything we had – ‘what if we took it all away from them?’, ‘what if we took them from their comfort zone?’. No shadows or darkness to hide in, dark imagery, props or metaphors or symbols to use."

"Compare it to what we sometimes or mostly do with our music – stick to the mere necessary, take a minimalistic approach of a whole. What do we really need? To create a certain ‘feeling’ of emotion. For us, it was an extremely interesting cooperation. We normally keep our guard extremely high, never give something out of our hands, to keep it as close to our skin as humanly possible – that’s exactly what they did as well, literally…It was awkward, uneasy, and very confronting for us to see, yet one of the most interesting things we did lately, and an honor for us to be working with such talented and inspiring people. ‘Under a watchtower of punishing light.’”

Amenra will be hitting the road again next month. Dates are available after the jump.
