Some nice Black/Death Metal for your ears.
Reminds me somehow of bands like Gorgoroth, Melechesh or even Behemoth, though it is less technical...
Hmm, what else is interesting about this record?! Maybe that Black Flame were the first band to be signed on Gorgorth´s new label "Forces of Satan Records".

Strange indeed, firts I thought hXc mislabled this, but it seems that this is really called 'Mass IIII' and not Mass IV.
Anyway, what you can expect from 'Amenra' is some fine
Doom/Sludge/Hardcore/Drone Metal .... pretty Down Tempo,
but not bad, if you like this kind of genre mix.
