Progressive death metallers Entheos will begin their North American tour supporting Unearth and labelmates Revocation next week. The three-week run begins September 29th in Brooklyn, New York and closes on October 20th in Ottowa, Ontario. Additional support will be provided by High Command.
Entheos will be touring in support of their “Time Will Take Us All” full-length released earlier this year via Metal Blade Records. Pushing progressive death metal in ever more imaginative directions, Entheos continues to stand apart from the pack, incorporating elements drawn from myriad genres, including death metal, groove, grunge, electronica, slam, gothic rock, jazz, prog and more.
“We knew when we started writing that we really wanted to make something darker and heavier that was still uniquely Entheos, and we knew that we wanted to make a record that really came from our hearts and captured where we want to take this band,” explains vocalist Chaney Crabb.
“The new album also has a strong ‘trippy’ vibe, not in a generic sense but meaning when you are done listening to it you feel like you’ve gone on a journey,” adds multi-instrumentalist Navene Koperweis. “I’ve always loved albums that gave me that feeling. I can’t say we set out to have the experience, it just sort of happened and that’s something I’m proud of.”
Having stripped down to a two-piece in 2020, this has helped to streamline the band and allow the core members to make the music they want to with no compromise, which is clearly to their betterment. Koperweis, who takes the role of drummer in the band’s live lineup, has long written most of the guitar parts, so it was not a radically different writing process, but allowed him the freedom of complete control.
With Koperweis handling production duties and Mark Lewis (Whitechapel, The Black Dahlia Murder) mixing the record, all of the drums were tracked by Zack Ohren at Castle Ultimate, and Koperweis tracked guitars and vocals. They also recruited former member Evan Brewer to supply the bass. Though committed to their status as a two-piece, the band does have a live lineup with Brian James (ex-Fallujah) and Robert Brown (ex-Slaughter To Prevail) providing guitar, maintaining their reputation for being a killer live band. Having delivered the best record of their career they are also in a very good place mentally, but they do not get ahead of themselves.
