Amenra Showed The Scope Of Their Creativity At Roadburn 2016: Magical Fan-Filmed Footage

Posted on Thursday, April 28th, 2016

Amenra captivated a full capacity main stage not once, but twice at Roadburn 2016. Showing the scope of their creativity across two very different sets, Amenra had us in the palm of their hand.

Watch this fan-filmed footage and feel the magic all over again.

“Amenra was not to be missed. One simply NEEDS an Amenra show every 18-24 months in order to scrape the residus of stale emotions and denounced whims off one’s soul. They reset your preconception of what is ‘pure’ and what is ‘real’. That shiver down your spine is real, that knot in your gut and that ache in your neck are real. Not your bloody sneakers or the braids in your smelly beard.

“Plenty people seemed to agree with me, the band got heads nodding and fists pumping all the way to the back. Amenra value simplicity over visibility, tone over virtuosity, impact over ego, but eventually boast enough of all six of those traits to have grown into a formidable force that has earned every shred of respect the hard way and gives every punter a hard time denying that. Since the first time I saw them in an abandoned chapel in Ghent every performance of theirs left an indelible mark, this one, once again, was brilliant”Stijn Van Hees / Echoes and Dust.
