New Song “Plus Près De Toi (Closer To You)” Available From Amenra

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
2. Edelkroone
3. Plus près de toi (Closer to you)
4. Spijt
5. A solitary reign
6. Diaken

“We really wanted this new album to become something really special, thus we worked our asses off harder than ever before and pushed things back and forth to get the best out of it. As a result we’ve got something we are damn proud of, something we believe surpasses everything we’ve done in the past. Although Black and Death metal in its core, the album goes far beyond the boundaries of the genre and I truly believe it will make your hearts beat faster. So, lit up some candles, close your eyes and let it take you on a journey across those twisted visions of ours. It will grant you ascension to dark realms you might not want to come back from…”
