A lot of the East European and Russian bands are kind of difficult to find info on and Amentia is unfortunately no different. The Belarusian's practice death metal of the more technical sort. I hear bits of both Atheist and Suffocation in the music, but besides inspiration from these two bands the music is made up by a variety of other things as well. Often chunky bass-lines a la Cannibal Corpse also appear. There's not exactly too much new-thinking in what Amentia do, but nevertheless the unit is able to make it sound interesting and in an odd way also a little different.
Another asset is that the band doesn't solely rely on playing fast. Amentia is good at shifting the music by giving room to slower and heavier parts as well as bits of groove and spastic riffing. It don't hurt either that a lead or two regularly occur. These things combined with the aforementioned definitely provide the music with some nerve and identity. Fans of death metal with a technical touch can safely pick this CD up.
