'Youngsters' might not really be a correct word to describe this band. Founded in 2006, completed three years later Enthring spawned a first demo in 2010 and a debut full-length the next year. This led to a tour with Korplikaani in Brazil. Their new e.p. has a very appropriate title, because this music is brilliantly ordered chaos.
There's three songs on this e.p., each of the being a symphonic anthem with fierce guitars, furious drums and haunted screams. Above these typical blackened death metal elements, Enthring incorporates a huge amount of keyboards to enhance the bombastic atmosphere. In that aspect, Enthring could indeed stand next to bands like Korpiklaani, Finntroll or Children Of Bodom, even though this is clearly not folk metal (well, maybe 'We Thrive on Chaos' is).
Other bands that often come to mind are black metal pioneers like Dimmu Borgir or Limbonic Art. My favorite track, 'And We Dream of Our Demise', is a perfect example of this combination while opener 'The Second Vengeance Orchestra' is an amain and intensely chaotic piece of extreme metal that's just to brilliant to resist.
This e.p. is very promising, to say the least. It makes me hungry for more from this band and also for live performances. If played decent, this music will stun and awe many audience members and make them run to the merchandise stand immediately after the gig, that's for sure...
