Amentia hails from Minsk, Belarus, and they play technical Death Metal à la Necrophagist, Obscura and the like. These fellows' hyper-technical and tricky Death Metal is full of odd time signatures, challenging and unorthodox rhythm changes, and extremely progressive and even jazzy elements. Most likely this stuff is directed at those listeners who prefer exaggerated technical wankery over anything else within Death Metal, so if you see yourself belonging to this category of people, your ears will be challenged by Scourge. I do value the guys' playing skills on this as much as 5 out of 5, but as for displaying themselves as memorable and catchy songwriters, I can only credit them 2 out of 5.
