Entropia play Blackened Dark Progressive Post-Metal, which is a bit of a mouthful really but gives a general idea of what they sound like. Each of the (fairly long) songs are well composed and obviously a lot of thought has gone into them.
This is a really enjoyable album as it takes you on a journey through a blackened landscape full of surprises and unexpected turns. At its heart is a fiery Black Metal album, but one that has mutated out of the original genre confines into a space of its own to become lord of its post-metal landscape.
All the more impressive is the fact that this is Entropia’s first full album – maturity and intelligence of songwriting such as is on display here is rarely displayed so early in the existence of a band.
This is an album that has both heavy and light; the soft and the hard; atmosphere and bite. If you are looking for interesting and adventurous Black Metal then I highly recommend this album .

Entropia and Alpine Stranger Records have launched a Kickstarter to raise money to press Vesper on 2xLP. There is colored vinyl, black vinyl, test presses and more available in limited packages. Let’s do this!
Absolutely spectacular and stunning psychedelic black metal. Melodic at times and beautifully harsh in others. Like it so much I bought the Bandcamp release and went back to order a CD copy the very next day.
