This is it: the hype period for Entheos’s debut EP ends now. The band have released the album for streaming over on bandcamp and let me tell you something right out the door: it’s going to melt your face off. The bass and drums are absolutely phenomenal, which should come as no surprise when you remember that they are fronted by Evan Brewer (The Faceless/Ex-Animosity) and Navene Koperweis (Ex-Animals as Leaders/Ex-Animosity). You know what? Just head on over the jump and listen for yourself.
I really like every single thing about this. I’ve already heralded the bass and the drums, but listen to the solo on ‘Primal’ to remind yourself that the guitars here rule to the extreme. I also enjoy the little electronic intro on that track, done in taste and moderation. Finally, the vocals here are super-enjoyable, maintained extremity while still being nuanced. Long story short? Get on this, right now.
