AMENRA SHARE “VOOR IMMER” MUSIC VIDEO

Announce Livestream Event Happening June 27

DE DOORN IS OUT JUNE 25 ON RELAPSE RECORDS

AMENRA share the official “Voor Immer” music video from the forthcoming Relapse debut full-length De Doorn (June 25).

A truly gut-wrenching emotional voyage created throughout this bold ensemble.

AMENRA vocalist Colin H. van Eeckhout comments:

 “What you lose in the fire, you will find in the ashes””Voor Immer”  (“For Ever”) was one of the first songs we have written for De Doorn. We played it for the very first time in 2018 on the city square of Dixmude, West Flanders Belgium. Accompanied by the carillon, its bells a typical instrument from Belgium and the low countries, we connected the earth with the sky. It was initially written for a commemoration ceremony of the ending of the first world war. Images of widows and mothers bereft of their sons. Destroyed cities and whom was left to die. Finding strength and courage to rebuild what once was there, without what was theirs.The last time we played it live was in Menen, West Flanders Belgium end 2019. That night we gathered and burnt all our unacknowledged loss. Revealing by fire the 20feet high bronze AMENRA statue glowing red, a symbol of hope.This is a song about finding that hope, the strength to carry on. Its content ever present in the world today.  

“to fall and to rise 

under merciless skies 

light and grace

lines marring a mothers face 

wounds inflicted by love 

scarring our skin

here and above

our home. blemish on the land 

cuts fading to the softest trace 

outstretched. a beggars hand 

one last poem

and letters unread

it ends here. and weighs us 

down like lead

I stumble I fall 

my eyes to the ground

one last sigh

a silent sound” 

Additionally, AMENRA announce a livestream event celebrating the release of De Doorn. The fire ritual will commence on June 27 at 9pm CET. More info at tickets are available HERE
