Amenra is a Belgian post-metal band from Kortrijk, Belgium, formed in 1999. The band was founded by vocalist Colin H. van Eeckhout and lead guitarist Mathieu van de Kerckhove. The two had been in the hardcore punk band Spineless and wanted to create music with more "heart and soul". Their name connects the biblical amen with the Egyptian god Ra. They are known for a brooding sound and intense live performances.

The group began releasing their dark Mass albums in 2003 and have been experimenting with both sound and liveshows ever since. Read more on Last.fm
