ENTERPRISE EARTH UNLEASH NEW ALBUM 'DEATH: AN ANTHOLOGY' + DROP OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO FOR "BLOOD AND TEETH"

On Friday, February 2, 2024, release day was upon us, and Enterprise Earth unleashed upon the world their hotly-anticipated new album Death: An Anthology via MNRK Heavy. In celebration of the news, the band shared their intensely brutal yet deeply poignant latest offering "Blood and Teeth" along with the accompanying music video. Speaking about "Blood and Teeth", the band shared:


"'Blood and Teeth' lays out a gut-wrenching story of poisonous attachment, a cycle of self-harm and submission to the tragic realization of how much pain one can put themselves through for the sake of another’s admiration. Musically, this is the most elaborate song on 'Death: An Anthology'.


Moving through a clean piano intro, to blazing leads over a catchy groove, to death metal riffage, to a catchy metalcore adjacent chorus, to a dare we say sexy bridge, only to unleash the filthiest breakdown of the album at the end. The video is a direct visual representation of this and we hope it evokes an emotional response similar to the ones felt in its production."


When asked about the album, guitarist, supporting vocalist, and producer Gabe Mangold mentioned:


"I consider 'Death: An Anthology' to be our most expressive, intense, diverse, and finest work that Enterprise Earth has ever achieved so far and I hope I can say that with every body of music that we release. This album was SO much fun to create from every facet and while there are many peaks of brutality and valleys of melodic expressiveness, I hope the listener experiences the same emotions while listening that we did while creating: sheer enjoyment, empowerment, unity, catharsis, and so much more. Drown in Abyss, let it take us."



Leading up to last Friday's release date, the band had previously released "King of Ruination" with special guest Ben Duerr from Shadows of Intent, "The Reaper's Servant" featuring Darius Tehrani of Spite, and "Casket of Rust."

More than anything else, we share death in common. This universal eventuality unites us. In an evolutionary sense, it effectively ensures our equality. No matter who you are, you will die. Enterprise Earth explore death from a different perspective altogether. Rather than turn away from it, The U.S. quartet - Gabe Mangold (guitar, backing vocals, production), Brandon Zackery (drums), Travis Worland (vocals), and Dakota Johnson (bass) - face it with their fifth full-length offering, DEATH: AN ANTHOLOGY. Against an apocalyptical soundtrack of battering ram double bass drums, gut-punching guitars, and disarmingly dynamic vocals, the group present their most immersive and inimitable vision yet.


“The album is tied together by the overarching concept of death,” Travis states. “It’s easy to think of death as a separation of consciousness from the body, but we’re delving into the death of self, individuality, and relationships—whether romantic or platonic. Dying takes many forms. I grew up extremely religious, so death has always been on my mind. In any religion, the afterlife is the umbrella for all of your beliefs. I tend to think of death from a more philosophical standpoint these days.”


Enterprise Earth

The band have always incited mosh pits and though in equal measure. Since emerging during 2014, Enterprise Earth have logged two back-to-back debuts in the Top 10 of the Billboard Heatseekers Albums Chart, while Loudwire cited Luciferous among the 50 Best Metal Albums of 2019. With Gabe once again in the producer's chair, the musicians holed up in a Lake Tahoe cabin for nine days where they penned the bulk of DEATH: AN ANTHOLOGY. It marked the first time this lineup wrote together (and in-person) as well as with Travis on vocal duties.


“We fed off one another’s energy,” recalls Gabe. “These songs felt cohesive because of that. We all had a hand in the composition.”


In the end, death may be inevitable, but you can rely on Enterprise Earth for a release in the meantime.


“We wanted to make an album that feels like who we are as a collective,” the band agreed. “On the one hand, we hope you have fun listening to it. On the other, just know, ‘Death is real and it comes for us all’. One day, we won’t be here anymore. While we’re alive, we want to enjoy it.”
