|Polish post-black metal quintet ENTROPIA have just released a vinyl version of the debut album „Vesper” through Hellthrasher Productions.
Vesper is a result of almost a six-year process of the band’s development and sees Entropia detaching itself from its post-metal origins to explore the depths of black metal blasts accompanied with post-rock sensitivity and etherealness of shoegaze, creating a genuine, refreshing soundscape not unlike that of ALTAR OF PLAGUES, KRALLICE, AGALLOCH and WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM. Jakub Mankowski, a Fryderyk prize nominee and producer of BEHEMOTH, BLINDEAD and OBSCURE SPHINX was the sound engineer responsible for the Vesper’s sound. The visuals were created by Marcin Gadomski from Upgrade Design Studio.
Originally self-released by the band on CD in February 2013, the album is now available on black vinyl in an edition of 300 copies, coming in a gatefold sleeve with a two-sided lyric insert. All songs were carefully re-mastered by Kuba Mankowski to reach their full potential and sonic perfection.
“This record takes you on one of those hour-long journeys through the rippling darkness of self and space that never gets mired in repetition.” -Decibel Magazine
“Entropia combines black metal with sludge and post-rock elements into a completely original album full of atmosphere. Sometimes aggressive and threatening, sometimes melancholic and subdued or dreamy, but always with a sense of purpose and urgency.” -Lords of Metal
“Vesper is an entirely engaging and unmissable effort that will serve as one of the crowning jewels of its genre’s output this year.” -Sputnik Music
