Excuse the brevity here. Some bands just end up speaking for themselves. If you like Krallice, which many do for good reason, you'll discover wonderful things with Entheos and their upcoming album, Le Zahir. These’re different styles and approaches entirely, but a marked "anti-structure" remains, courtesy of a blind complexity and tinges of the avant-garde. This band does not fear discordance, yet doesn't solely rely on it for effect. Entheos is experimental, but not outrageous. Patient, but forthright.

The fourth track “Écho" is streaming below. Lush (not miasmic) weaves of doomy and blackened metal trade strong punches, opposing but ultimately harmonizing. In between, proggy interludes relish in themselves: intense breaks from intense moments. Screaming cries slice, not choke, layers of crunchy noise. “Écho” aims to carry its listeners away, but without that floating feeling. Drama at no expense of rawness; rawness at no expense of digestibility.
