THE AMENTA recently posted quality, multi-camera pro-shot, concert footage from the band’s performance at Sydney’s Gaelic Theater as part of the Industrial Corruption tour also featuring THE BERZERKER.

n0n, the latest album from THE AMENTA, was released on 10 February 2009 in North America via Listenable Records. The CD, which came out in Europe in October, was mixed at The Vault Studios in Sydney, Australia with longtime engineer Lachlan Mitchell (NAZXUL). Mastering for the album took place at Studios 301 with Australia's premier mastering engineer Steve Smart. THE AMENTA recently completed a three week trek across Europe entitled WINTERFEST 2009 which also featured DECIDE, VADER, SAMAEL, and ORDER OF ENNEAD.
THE AMENTA describes the n0n’s sound as a fusion of extreme metal, electronic noise and dub. The follow-up to 2004's Occasus features tracks in total, with each song containing over 100 actual recorded tracks, pushing technology to its absolute limits. Rather than relying on the clichéd shit in which other bands are content wallow, THE AMENTA has constructed an album built on new ideas, new concepts, new sounds and new techniques. n0n is the fusion of whitenoise, shards of dissonant guitars and dense layers of radio chatter. Lyrically, n0n is a newscast, showing you the shit around you. Suicide bombers and evangelists, freeways and dead ends. n0n stands as an indictment on today's media and technology addicted society.
The recording of the album spanned three different countries and seven different studios. n0n contains a myriad of different contributors and performers with no less than two drummers, six vocalists and two bass players recording on the album which features guest appearances from Nergal (BEHEMOTH) Jason Mendonca (AKERCOCKE), Alice Daquet (SIR ALICE), Alex Pope (RUINS) and more.
