By late 2014, there must've been something magnetic in the air, because it drew these musicians back together. "All of us have gotten some great opportunities, but they didn't necessarily pan out to be perfect," admits Navene. "It was natural for me to call Evan. It just made sense. The amount of effort we collectively put into this makes it close to the perfect situation. This is the band none of us ever got to be in. All of us are on the same page, and we're really tight personally. That inspires us to work all the time."
Navene had produced Chaney's previous band Systems, and her intense, infectious vocal style stuck with him. She rounded out the lineup, and the group hunkered down and cut its independent four-song debut EP, Primal, with Navene behind the board. They tapped into a staggering amalgam of polyrhythmic riffage, mind-numbing percussion, and eerily entrancing vocals.
Already garnishing a reputation for their intense live show, and aggressive stage presence, they garnered over 10,000 "likes" on Facebook (within a month), while Primal became #1 across Bandcamp in March 2015. Artery Recordings signed the group as they went on to tour with Veil of Maya, Oceano and did festival dates with Between The Buried And Me and The Red Chord. Immediately after, they hit the studio to cut their first full-length album for the label. "It's more in-depth," he remarks regarding the new material. "The songs have gotten a bit longer, but you know it's ENTHEOS."
