ENTERPRISE EARTH: The Chosen Out TODAY; US Tour Underway
Today marks the official release date of The Chosen, the long anticipated new full-length from progressive deathcore outfit ENTERPRISE EARTH.
Thick with atmosphere and groove-driven, old-school death metal with modern flourishes, the record finds the band switching gears from earth-shattering breakdowns to sickeningly slow sludge to blast furnace pummeling with seemingly effortless ease. Writes Blabbermouth of the offering, “…ENTERPRISE EARTH come pretty close to transcending deathcore altogether on The Chosen, instead pursuing a new and often electrifying hybrid of modern (and not so modern) metallic styles, replete with far bigger tunes than on any previous record. From the opening seconds of ‘Where Dreams Are Broken,’ the sheer, shiny weight of this thing is abundantly apparent. The Chosen sounds huge and definitive.”
The Chosen was engineered, produced, mixed, and mastered by the band’s Gabe Mangold (now the group’s sole guitarist) save for the drums which were tracked with producer Jason Suecof (August Burns Red, Demon Hunter, Death Angel).
The Chosen is available on CD, LP, cassette, and digitally. Find ordering options at THIS LOCATION.

“The Chosen sounds and feels like an intermittently experimental masterclass, as ENTERPRISE EARTH warp crushing grooves to their own foul ends, ugly electronics bursting from every calcified pore and enough mad-eyed melodrama to briskly check the infernally gothic box, too.” 8.5/10 – Blabbermouth
“Barely two weeks into 2022 and we already find ourselves in the presence of a band who are redrawing the battlelines. Is it too early to say that, in The Chosen, ENTERPRISE EARTH have made sure they’re going to be hard to topple from the top of the pack?” — V13
“The Chosen is ENTERPRISE EARTH’s most-everything record to date: it’s the heaviest, the most vicious, the most technical, and, not for nothing, the catchiest offering in the band’s already-impressive repertoire, and it’s already destined to be one of 2022’s must-hear metal releases.” — MetalSucks
“ENTERPRISE EARTH is here to pound you into dust…” — Metal Injection
“…a monster of an album.” — Wonderbox Metal
“ENTERPRISE EARTH might be among the chosen few of heavy bands to make marked progression and refinement without sacrificing intensity, aggression or energy… without a doubt the most memorable ENTERPRISE EARTH release to date.” — New Transcendence
