ENTHEOS' heaviliy anticipated full length album "The Infinite Nothing" comes out through Artery Recordings on 4/1/2016. Their first EP "Primal" was a head-crushing amazing start to Entheos but we cannot wait until this new album drops! Entheos have really grown over the last year as musicians and their music has only become a more cohesive unit that will pummel your ears and leave you wanting more!
Entheos was just at SOUTH BY SOUTHWEST yesterday & will now be embarking on an amazing tour with The Contortionist, MONUMENTS, and sleepmakeswaves throughout North America! See them in a city near you!
Our LOM babe from Arizona, Mischief Madness, and her producer Gypsy interviewed Entheos Frontwoman Chaney Crabb. They discussed Entheos' upcoming album release and future plans for the band.
This interview was first aired on Mischief's weekly radio show "The World of Madness" on IPORadio.com, which airs Fridays 2-5PM (AZ Time).

"I am a woman in my late twenties and have been working in the industry for the last four years. I first began as a co-host to a music television show, then radio personality for a web-based radio station and now I am spokesmodel for the Ladies of Metal.
I have interviewed hundreds of bands yet it was always with the help and guidance of my producer who is male. I noticed that without my producer or any other male figure accompanying me to the venue, I would found myself being treated by band members with less respect than I deserved. They assumed I was a groupie and would proceed to hit on me; once I would disclose my identity that I am with the Press, they would then treat me like the plague.
I recently started handling some of my own PR and, although I follow the same protocol that my producer has taught me to follow, I find myself struggling to receive the same respect and I attribute it to the preconceived misogyny within the scene. As a woman, I feel like I have to work twice as hard to be held in the same regard as my male counterparts.
I have had bands purposely ruin my interviews and laugh about it, as if my work was nothing to be taken seriously. I have had tour managers disrespect me and assume, again, that I was just some dumb girl trying to get backstage with the band. I have been brushed aside by bands who were dissatisfied with my inabilities to provide them drugs/alcohol, even when we had a confirmed interview appointment scheduled for that day. Yet, I continue to impress every band I interview with my passion of metal and knowledge about their music…may I say even “surprise”?
Many Metal band members and fans are guilty of the assumption that the women that attend shows are only there to hook up with other guys, as if it is unbelievable to think that a woman would like metal out of her own volition. The women of Metal are just as aggressive and equality passionate about the music as any man and it sad to see very few women dominate the industry as musicians, reporters, producers, etc; what is even more sad is the men within the industry that continue to treat women with contempt for wanting to have the same skills and professions in the same field as they do.
The one thing that we all have in common is our love for metal. We all began as outcasts and music was the channel that allowed us to express ourselves. Metal is the big “fuck you” to the establishment and that includes saying “no” to the preconceived notions of racism, misogyny, homophobia, and class wars.
The only way to combat the misogyny within the metal community is with active feminism, which is not exclusive to women, and equality among all people. There is no place within our community for this backwards thinking and we must all stand in solidarity for the women in Metal should be celebrated and applauded for braving the current that works against them."- Original Post Taken from Mischief Madness' Tumblr
