ENTHEOS The Infinite Nothing

Album · 2016 · Technical Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Time Signature
An ever-expanding metal...

Genre: prog-tech death metal

Featuring members who have been involved in the likes of Animosity, The Faceless, Animals As Leaders, and Inferi, Entheos is not a wet-behind-the-ears affair although "The Infinite Nothing" is the band's debut album.

The cumulation of the individual members' experiences definitely makes itself felt on the album. From beginning to end, the listener is treated to impressively complex and sophisticated, yet heavy-as-fuck death metal. From crunchy riffs and heavy breakdowns (that kick the ass of any deathcore out there) through odd time signatures, crushing drumbeats, syncopations and growls/screams to melodic and at times jazzy guitar solos, the listener is taken on a mind-boggling musical journey. To top it off, there are hints of electronica every now and then which actually fit very well into the overall picture.

While probably not everyone's cup of tea, Entheos' "The Infinite Nothing" is definitely a very good tech death metal album which should appeal to any fan of the genre.

"Primal" is an EP release by US death metal act Entheos. The EP was self-released in March 2015. It´s the band´s first release.

Stylistically the music on the 4 track, 17:48 minutes long EP is technical/progressive death metal with both derivative and contemporary influences showing. Entheos is a very well playing act and they deliver their music with great precision and conviction. Although this is predominantly death metal oriented music, there is a strong Meshuggah influence heard throughout the album. Heavy angular riffs in odd time signatures combined with fast blasting and aggressive "core" tinged growling and screaming.

The sound production is clinical, clear, and powerful. So if you´re looking for organic sounding material/playing... move along. There´s an almost futuristic atmosphere about "Primal" that works really well for the band. Robotic, clinical, clear, sterile, and precision, are just some of the words that are valid when describing the EP.

So there´s no arguing that "Primal" is a pretty interesting and very powerful sounding EP, and there are quite a few positives to mention when rating this release. The less positive is that the tracks aren´t that memorable and that Entheos need to work on a more personal and unique sound. They wear their influences a bit too much on their sleeves for comfort, and with this amount of talent, they should be able to produce something a bit more hook laden (which doesn´t have to compromise extremity) and original. Still a 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.
