Enabler Begns Recording New Album

Ohio-based hardcore/metal outfit Enabler has entered Silver Bullet Studios with engineer Chris Tet and producer Greg Thomas (Misery Signals, Shai Hulud), who also produced the band's critically acclaimed album, "All Hail The Void" (2012). Mastering will be done by Bill Henderson at Azimuth Mastering. An early summer 2015 release date is planned.

Enabler's Jeff Lohrber comments: "It's been great working with Greg Thomas again. Greg is a former guitarist of the band, in addition to producing our debut full-length, 'All Hail the Void'. I thought it was key to work with a producer who is not only a brilliant engineer, but also understands the band's sound. We've done this before, so there's a lot of fresh ideas coming out-- some things we wanted to try previously but didn't have the time for, as well as a lot of reflection on the previous material of everything that we love about it as well as everything that we think needed to change. The collection of songs on this record is the most dense and diverse that I've written for Enabler-- at times it is the band at its heaviest and most destructive moments, and at times is the most melodic and heartfelt it's ever been. There is also a general love for punk and traditional rock and roll that comes out on this record that the band hasn't quite done before, with a lot of black metal style undertones hidden beneath it. The record just sounds scary, but very listenable at the same time. I'm always excited for every release the band puts out, but I think this one takes the cake on anything the band has done previously. I can't wait for everyone to hear it."

To hear new material from ENABLER, be sure to catch the band on their upcoming co-headlinging North American tour with Call of the Void. Dates and venues can be found over here. More...

Enabler Signs With Century Media

Century Media Records has signed Ohio-based hardcore/metal band, Enabler. The label had this to say:

"Led by front man, songwriter, and guitarist Jeff Lohrber, Enabler stands as one of the most honest, pissed off, and heartfelt metallic hardcore bands around today.

"The band's sound, which is a unique mixture of thrash, death metal, punk rock, and hardcore has made an impact all over the world since their debut EP, Eden Sank to Grief, was first released on Andy Hurley's FC Records in 2010.

"Two full length albums, three EPs, and multiple split and compilation appearances have been released on various labels since then, including the critically acclaimed 2012 break-through album, All Hail the Void, on Southern Lord Records.

"In 2014, the band released their 2nd full length LP, La Fin Absolue Du Monde, on Creator Destructor/Earsplit Compound. The album title is based off of the John Carpenter movie Cigarette Burns. Recording was done in December of 2013 by engineer Shane Hotchstetler at Howl Street Recordings in Milwaukee, and it was mastered by Steve Austin of Today Is The Day at Austin Enterprise.

"The amazing artwork was finished by Chris Smith at Gray Aria design. The album was performed by Lohrber on guitar and vocals, Amanda Daniels playing bass and providing backing vocals, and Ringworm touring member Ryan Steigerwald on drums." More...

Enabler Announces New Album

Following recent broadcasts informing the public of Enabler's deadly revamped lineup and impending East Coast tour, the Midwest-based trio now expose the details on an upcoming second full-length release, "La Fin Absolue Du Monde."

Translated from French to signify "the absolute end of the world," the title of the new album is yet another of the band's works inspired by filmmaker John Carpenter, in this case in referencing his movie "Cigarette Burns."

"La Fin Absolue Du Monde" was tracked with Shane Hotchstetler at Howl Street Recordings in Milwaukee (Expire, Northless) and mixed by Steve Austin (Today Is The Day) at his Austin Enterprises.

Stated founding guitarist/vocalist and chief songwriter Jeff Lohrber on the current state of Enabler: "This record is one of the proudest moments of my recording career. It's a record made by a full band, and it sounds like a band playing. That is something that is lost in modern recording and is slowly becoming a thing of the past in the modern world of music. I feel alienated by it and I'm pissed about it. I recommend turning everything all the way up while listening to it."

Further details on the release, pre-orders, and track listing are forthcoming.
