“Offering an initial glimpse of the devastation packaged onto the project, Enterprise Earth have shared an eviscerating first single in “King of Ruination” featuring Ben Duerr from Shadow of Intent. Coupled with a unnerving visual directed by Nick Chance, the future for Enterprise Earth couldn’t look brighter.” – Knotfest.com
“The djent is strong in the Washington deathcore stalwarts’ latest, which is all ultra-low-tuned chug, pitch-shifter squeals and syncopated stop-start riffs that will flip your stomach – not to mention a solo so technical and unsettling it would make Fredrik Thordendal jealous.” – Guitar World
“… “King of Ruination”, a sprawling, technical, foreboding piece of dark magic. Bile-drenched one moment, beautifully crafted the next, it’s an incredible place to kick off such a thoughtful and thrilling chapter.” – idobi Radio
Wednesday, November 15, 2023 – Enterprise Earth have released their latest heavy hitter “The Reaper’s Servant“ featuring the inimitable Darius Tehrani from Spite. Today’s drop is taken from the band’s forthcoming new album ‘Death: An Anthology’ out on Friday, February 2. Speaking on today’s news, Enterprise Earth commented:
“‘Reaper’s’ is definitely for the real metalheads out there. Overall, I’d say this is the most aggressive and straight-to-the-point track on [Death: An Anthology] as it comes out of the gate breathing fire and does not let up until it’s over. We were elated to have Darius on the track as he absolutely nailed the vibe for his part. His unmistakable voice and energy really sent the whole track to a new level of confidence and power.”
Prior to today, the band unleashed “King of Ruination” (ft. Ben Duerr) which alongside the forthcoming album announcement, garnered high praise and palpable excitement from the likes of Loudwire, Guitar World, Knotfest.com, idobi Radio, Metal Injection, Lambgoat, amongst many others.

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 Zackey [drums], Travis Worland [vocals], and Dakota Johnson [bass]—face it head-on with their fifth full-length offering, DEATH: AN ANTHOLOGY. Against an apocalyptic 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.”
The band have always incited mosh pits and thought 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.” Hysteria Mag heralded 2022’s The Chosen as “a veritable masterclass in experimentation and reinvention that shows a highly skilled band transcending its roots and making steps to become leaders of a field still being created,” while Metal Injection summed it up as “a strong statement.” Plus having toured with the likes of Thy Art Is Murder, Dying Fetus, Chelsea Grin, Fit For An Autopsy, Fallujah, Within Destruction, and more.
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.”
