As someone that went utterly batshit over The Amenta’s second album n0n, Flesh Is Heir initially felt a bit… off. n0n was (deep breath now) the best metal album of 2008, a savage cacophony of industrial, ambient, death and black metal, replete with lashings of nihilism and loathing. Which was nice. The first few tracks on Flesh Is Heir don’t sound anywhere near as hopeless (in a good “argh, fuck this world” way, not in a “christ this sounds shit” way) or disgusted.
