“…AMENRA push the boundaries of extreme music by being heavy in practically every conceivable way; sonically, emotionally and spiritually.” – THE INDEPENDENT
“The traditional motifs of the band’s hardcore roots impress upon us a will to survive adversity, to learn from experiences and emerg stronger, to use transcendental moments of emotional catharsis to shed our pain, stand up and rejoin life’s fray, moving forward with hope, prepared for whatever chaos has in store.” – METAL HAMMER
“Mass VI is a work that will leave you empty; it’s cathartic and draining and you’re left feeling hollow, as though Amenra have looked deep inside you and excised your own exquisite desolation.” – THE QUIETUS
“the deepest, finest record Belgium’s apocalyptic and meditative Amenrahave yet produced. Painfully intimate, achingly beautiful and excoriatingly heavy, Mass VI is a complete masterpiece.” – ECHOES AND DUST
“…not only their best record, but most probably the best one of 2017…” – CVLT NATION

“…an appropriately stakes-raising effort, interweaving hypnotic, textured elegance and bracing, race-against-the-dying-of-the-light heaviness without ever sacrificing the sense that something profound and transcendent is going down.” – DECIBEL
“‘Mass VI’ is too powerful to be taken for granted” – BROOKLYN VEGAN
“Crescendos are built up only to be brought down. And it is this ability of their weighty and morose post metal to make one think as well as connect to the ‘other’ that truly makes this album worth a listen.” – TRANSCENDING OBSCURITY
“…an emotional album that tackles the human experience with a thick overtone of distress.” – EXCLAIM!
“Amenra may be dark, but they are also darkly triumphant.” – REVOLVER
