ENTROPIA is a multifaceted, extreme metal band originating from Poland (Oleśnica in Lower Silesia), whose members perform under a joint moniker ULTRA. They combine a number of genres, from krautrock and electronic music, to sludge and black metal, filtered through a prism of metallic extremity.
Through three studio albums – “Vesper” (2013), “Ufonaut” (2016) and “Vacuum” (2018) – ENTROPIA pushed and evolved its base sound to develop a unique sonic perspective, drenched in psychedelia. The latter plays a major part in the band’s image and conceptual approach, and constitutes the new album, “Total”. The album is set to be released on March 17th via Agonia Records.
“Total” encapsulates all previous installments of ENTROPIA. Pushing aside the temptation to follow along the same lines as “Vacuum”, new ideas have sprout in favor of further musical growth. In this sense, “Total” stands as a brand new opening, and rests upon the sound of self-designed amplifiers and multi-layered electric guitar compositions.
“Total attempts to capture a glimpse of our ongoing and unending search,” comments ENTROPIA. “It consolidates the experiences and skills we’ve amassed throughout the years, and constitutes a standalone, complete and utter creation; a totality, which reflects of the band’s chaotic spirit.”
ENTROPIA recorded “Total” in April of 2022 at studio Monochrom, located in the mountains of Kotlina Kłodzka in Poland. Heinrich House Studio engineered, mixed and mastered the album. “Total” is replete with artwork from Zbigniew Bielak (Behemoth, Ghost, Mgła).
Growing interest from metal and non-metal community allowed ENTROPIA to make a mark; the band played a number of key festivals (inc. Roadburn Festival, Primavera Sound, OFF Festival, Mystic Festival) and embarked on a European tour with US black/folk act Wayfarer. ENTROPIA contributed to the video game Cyberpunk 2077, by having their song “Future Drugs” appear on the official soundtrack.
