Originally formed in 2015, since 2020, ENTHEOS’ lineup has been stripped down to core founding members drummer Navene Koperweis (Fleshwrought, ex-Animals As Leaders, etc.) — 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.
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 has 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, and many more, building a steady following and carving out a niche for themselves.
ENTHEOS’ live lineup this run will feature Koperweis and Crabb with guitarists Brian James (ex-Fallujah) and Robert Brown (ex-Slaughter To Prevail). The band has completed work on their Metal Blade debut with producer Zack Ohren (Suffocation, Warbringer). The album is currently being mixed by Mark Lewis (Whitechapel, Nile).
