“Mass V, as it vacillates between gently fingering silken tones and sumptuous textures to tearing down sonic walls in a fit of raw, anguished destruction, is an extraordinary effort. It’s a record at once subtle, intellectual and completely venomous. 4.5/5″ – About.com
“Ethereal hardcore/sludge band Amenra touches on black metal, gothic folk and post-rock in the most organic of ways.” – BrooklynVegan
“…an insurmountable peak of despair, and amongst the horror, enlightenment. Mass V was the sound of this tribe of Neurot finally marching defiantly beside those who have journeyed through silver in blood before them.” – PopMatters
“Amenra’s unfiltered style of organic sludge and doom metal has been a remarkable body of work to experience over the years. Thirteen years after their inception and the group is still releasing emotionally shattering bodies of work that rise out of the ashes of very specific times and places.” – sound Colour Vibration
“…an utterly brilliant album that not only stands as Amenra’s finest work, but that undoubtedly would (and probably does) make Scott Kelly, Steve Von Till, and Co. proud to have these fine young Belgians on their roster. 5/5″ – Sputnik Music
“…a dynamically powerful return-to-form for Amerna.” – Ultimate Guitar
“…while harping on the similarities between the band and Neurosis’ bleaker material may seem to imply a dearth of creativity, it really is just the opposite with Amenra. This is an example of a band that has taken inspiration from a seminal act and refined it into their own vision, building on top of the existing foundations to provide something both familiar and new… 9/10″ – Axis of Metal
“When it comes to modern sludge and post-metal, these guys still reign supreme in their craft.” – Don’t Count On It Reviews
“As one of Neurot Recordings new signings, Amenra finally gets the chance to showcase their intense and devastating music. 90/100″ – Infernal Masquerade
