‘Become the Damned’ out now
Taken from Dark Spectrum EP, to be released 15th January
Antre (pronounced ant-er) is an old English word for a cave or cavern. Appropriate name, considering ANTRE are a band who manifest as a representation of the innermost darkest places within all of us.
The critically acclaimed Nottingham group return with their new EP Dark Spectrum, released 15th January 2021 via Withered Hand Records.
In celebration of the news, the band have released their new single ‘Become the Damned’.

Drawing on a wide range of influences, in particular black metal, but also death, thrash and hardcore, ANTRE succeed in creating an atmosphere at once claustrophobic, savage, and intense.
The world is a grim and unrelenting place currently – and ANTRE are here to pay recognition to that state. The band are born from and exist in the situations we all retreat to in moments of despair. ANTRE challenged themselves to write a more personal document of themselves with their Dark Spectrum EP – channeling their inner emotions, the four tracks on offer respectively personalise Fear, Wrath, Salvation and Sanity.
The band have a long-standing DIY background being in many groups from various scenes over the years; they take this ethos into their new EP, and it’s an attitude that saw them reach recognition on their debut LP Void. Prior to this, ANTRE‘s split 7” with Underdark was a bestseller on Bandcamp, landing in their top-selling black metal chart when released in early 2018. Praise from Kerrang!, Decibel, and Metal Hammer, among others, saw Antre reach new heights as they performed alongside the likes of Winterfylleth, Wode, The Infernal Sea, The Moth Gatherer and more.
A beautifully vicious and suffocating release, Dark Spectrum is another fine addition in the journey of one of the UK’s most promisingly furious bands.
