Entheos Signs Worldwide Deal With Metal Blade

Metal Blade Records is proud to welcome Entheos to its worldwide roster!

Originally formed in 2015, since 2020, the lineup has been stripped down to core founding members drummer Navene Koperweis - who has now also taken on guitar duties - and vocalist Chaney Crabb, and they have never been more vital. Armed with a sound that amalgamates death metal, groove, grunge, electronica, slam, gothic rock, jazz, prog and more, they are a wholly unpredictable beast that has evolved over the course of their career.

Navene Koperweis and Chaney Crabb comment: "We are incredibly excited to announce that we have signed with Metal Blade Records. Metal Blade is a pillar in the metal community and consistently releases music from many of the world's greatest bands. We are proud to be associated with such a label and look forward to our future working together."

The progressive death metal genre is a diverse movement, but even within this, Entheos stand out as a unique entity. Taking their name from a Greek word that translates to "the god within", the band's philosophy can be drawn from its meaning. "The English word 'enthusiasm' is derived from this word. We chose this name originally because of both the enthusiasm that we felt for embarking on this new journey as a band and our collective belief in 'the god within' - the idea that reality manifests itself from within us." Their debut EP Primal was dropped in 2015, first full-length The Infinite Nothing following in 2016, with their most recent release - 2017's more progressive-oriented Dark Future - being their deepest and darkest record, lyrically influenced by the suicide of a close friend of Crabb's.

In support of these records, the band have toured with the likes of The Black Dahlia Murder, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Veil of Maya, Revocation, The Contortionist, Intronaut, Goatwhore, Between the Buried and Me, Born of Osiris, Rivers of Nihil, Beyond Creation, Conjurer, Iron Reagan and many more, building a steady following and carving out a niche for themselves, but it is only now that they are truly coming into their own.
