Pushing progressive death metal in ever more imaginative directions, Entheos – vocalist Chaney Crabb and multi-instrumentalist Navene Koperweis – continue to stand apart from the pack. Incorporating elements drawn from myriad genres – including death metal, groove, grunge, electronica, slam, gothic rock, jazz, prog and more – they have evolved with every release. Having stripped down to a two-piece in 2020, this decision streamlined the band and allows the core members to make the music they want -with no compromise, which is clearly to their betterment.
“‘In Purgatory’ is a direct extension of our last single ‘Absolute Zero,” says Koperweis. “Musically, the lead guitar and melodies that appear on the outro of ‘Absolute Zero’ became the seeds for ‘In Purgatory,’ and from there, the song wrote itself.“
Crabb continue, “Lyrically, it represents introspection and coming to terms with the person that you are at your very core. The video was shot and edited by the incredible David Brodsky and Allison Woest and their team at My Good Eye: Music Visuals.“
“Absolute Zero” and “In Purgatory” are just the beginning of the new era of Entheos. Expect more in 2023. But for now, please reside “In Purgatory.”
