THE AMENTA Added To Australian BEHEMOTH/JOB FOR A COWBOY Dates

Sydney, Australia's extreme metal unit THE AMENTA has been added to the East Coast leg of the Australian BEHEMOTH / JOB FOR A COWBOY / GOATWHORE tour.

The dates are as follows:

April 14 - Billboard - Melbourne, AUS
April 16 - The Metro - Sydney, AUS
April 17 - The HiFi - Brisbane, AUS

Multi-camera footage of THE AMENTA's performance at Sydney's Gaelic Theater as part of the Industrial Corruption tour (also featuring THE BERZERKER) can be viewed below.

"n0n", the latest album from THE AMENTA, received a U.S. release on February 10, 2009 via Listenable Records. The CD, which came out in Europe in October 2008, 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.

According to a press release, "n0n" "sees THE AMENTA redefining extreme music. Rather than relying on the clich├ęd shit in which other bands are content wallow, THE AMENTA have 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 Jason Mendonca (AKERCOCKE), Alice Daquet (SIR ALICE), Alex Pope (RUINS) and more.
