Belgian heavy music luminaries Amenra shared the centerpiece “Plus près de toi (Closer to You),” the new single from the new album “Mass VI,” coming via Neurot Recordings on October 20th.
About the piece, Colin H. Van Eeckhout comments…”The song is about a profound longing, a sadness you carry within. Solitude. The journey to come closer to the people, and things you loved and you miss. A melancholy hymn. Inspired by a translation of a 19th-century Christian hymn, Nearer To God To Thee. It made sense to write and sing in French. Those words felt like they had more poetic outcome, than the English substitute. By using French and Flemish on this album, I felt like I could keep it a little closer to home, to our hearts. It’s a part of our heritage.”
The track listing for the album is:
1. Children of the Eye
3. Plus près de toi (Closer to you)
5. A solitary reign
