ANTRE premiere ‘Suffer The Light’ video via Revolver; album pre-orders now available

Nottingham-based black metallers, ANTRE, have premiered the video for the track Suffer The Light via Revolver magazine; the track is available to stream now across all available platforms. The track is taken from their upcoming debut album, Void, which will be released on 22 February, 2019. Pre-orders are now available.


Of the video, guitarist Donny Hopkins comments:
“I have a fascination with retro hardware VHS, old arcade machines and consoles, CRT TVs, and tried to emulate the feel of a ‘found’ VHS tape using modern equipment. Also, trying to factor in some of my favourite horror tropes, such as subliminal imaging from classic films such as The Exorcist.”

ANTRE  – who take their name from the old English word for cave or cavern – self-recorded the tracks that make up Void in an old church. The band pull on threads from death metal, thrash and hardcore, and weave them into a dense back drop of black metal to create a claustrophobic and intense atmosphere. ANTRE is born from – and exists – in the place we all retreat to in moments of despair. The lyrical concepts explored on Void draw from stories and narratives that evoke feelings of internal human darkness and destruction. Those claustrophobic thought patterns are punctuated by moments of clear reflection, expressed in the stripped back, acoustic tracks. 

Featuring members of Crumbling Ghost, Pombagira and Megalodoom, ANTRE have a DIY ethos that underpins their band activities. Even the cover artwork was created by guitarist, Chris, who scratched the paint into the canvas to symbolise falling into the darkest of places.

Having already played shows with Winterfylleth, Wode and The Infernal Sea, ANTRE are already mapping out live activity for 2019. Their split 7″ with fellow Nottingham-based band, Underdark, was featured on Bandcamp’s top selling list for black metal upon release.
