Canadian legends Entropy first hit the metal scene in the late 80s and 30 years later they are still melting faces, this time with the new full length “Force Convergence”.
This is the band’s fourth album, and they describe it as their best yet and it’s a cinematic type experience. Entropy shares the premise being the concept album:
“We wanted to bring metal fans a sci-fi horror experience with the album story. The lyrical inspiration is from bands like Rush, Queensryche, Voivod, Iron Maiden, and also from films like Aliens, Predator, War Of The World’s, Independence Day, Invasion Of The Body Snatchers. There is also a sprinkle of war scene themes throughout the story, like Apocalypse Now, Platoon, and Starship Troopers, mixed in for fun.”
The story-driven, progressive thrash metal album has been getting excellent reviews from the people who have had a chance to listen to it early; this is the release that everyone wants!
So far, all the Entropy albums have a different feel to them, and this new one is also forging its own path. “Force Convergence” is a 30-minute metal rip-ride! It is a creative and fun album that flows with power, melody, aggressiveness, and meaning.
With an original and eclectic sound that is 30 years in the making, Entropy is suitable for all metalheads especially those who enjoy Slayer, Pantera, and Iron Maiden.
In celebration of its release today on August 28th, the band is sharing their new lyric video for the track “Ripzone” HERE.
The band adds about the song:
“Ripzone is just a ripper, simple as that. We wanted a less is more approach on it for leads. We wanted to shred all over that middle part…but knowing this was likely the lead-off track we wanted to melt faces with the crush. When the lead does finally come in, we feel it has more of an impact.”

Formed in Toronto in the late 80s, Canadian metal band Entropy has released 3 albums on their own independent label, Ashen Existence (1992), Transcendence (1995), and E3 (2012).
The quartet of Oscar Rangel (bass), Ger Schreinert (vocals), Dan Lauzon (guitar), and Blake Lemieux (drums) mark their own eclectic style of metal. Lauzon writes the songs as guitar music structures. Schreinert gets down the lyrics and vocal lines. Rangel contributes with beautiful classical guitar and creative bass lines throughout the songs. Lemieux composes the drum parts, and the result is brutal and elegant at the same time.
The unique sound of Entropy comes from a blend of thrash, death, prog, groove, speed, and power metal stylings. The original sound coupled with strong reviews in print and web media for their independent CD releases, Entropy has performed extensive shows for their fans, playing live with such legendary acts as Annihilator, Piledriver, Fear Factory, Razor, Obituary, and Anvil and countless local Canadian bands.
Entropy’s independent album releases have become somewhat of an underground metal collector’s item, with on-line reports of eBay bids going up to $500 USD for an original copy of Ashen Existence!
As of August 2020, Entropy will release the fourth album Force Convergence, with even more music planned after that. Entropy thanks their fans, and metal album collectors from around the world, for the continued interest and support of their unique brand of metal.
