Enterprise Earth have finished the recording process for their new album and have officially moved on to the mixing stage. The effort is expected to be released later this year.
Gabe Mangold (Enterprise Earth), Brandon Zackey (Enterprise Earth), and Tyler Shelton (Traitors) recently joined forces for a cover of Gojira‘s “Flying Whales.“ The video for the track was shared during the latest edition of Metal Injection‘s “Slay At Home” series.
It looks like Enterprise Earth have entered the studio to work on new material. The band shared the below posts regarding that:

Enterprise Earth have shared a quarantine acoustic performance of “There Is No Tomorrow.” This news comes after the band recently released an acoustic version of the song as part of their new EP “Foundation Of Bones.”
The group commented:
“The acoustic version of ‘There Is No Tomorrow’ was a cathartic experience. It was inspired by bands that have done incredible acoustic renditions of their heavy tunes, namely Alice In Chains, The Contortionist, and I See Stars. Our sonic inspirations and musical expressions go much deeper than just being brutal and we wanted to express that sentiment and develop another facet of our sound.
We love melody, peaks and valleys within a song, acoustic jams that take you on a journey, and most importantly, we love writing music that resonates strongly within us. ‘There Is No Tomorrow’ is easily the most melodic and emotional song from Luciferous.
If any tune from that record deserved an acoustic rendition, it would be that one. Expect more of these acoustic renditions in the future. We hope you enjoy something a little different from us 🤟🏼”
Enterprise Earth have shared a quarantine performance of Necrophagist’s “Fermented Offal Discharge.” This news comes after the band recently released a cover of the song as part of their new EP “Foundation Of Bones.” Guitarist Gabriel Mangold commented:
“When the idea of doing some covers came up, Necrophagist was one of the first bands we considered. Like Lamb Of God, they’re a massive influence on all of us. We had a bit of a difficult time deciding which Necro song to cover as both albums are classic tech-death staples — and all of the songs are hard to play — but we ultimately decided on ‘Fermented….’ It was a lot of fun to record and perform.”
Enterprise Earth have shared a quarantine performance of Lamb Of God‘s “Now You’ve Got Something To Die For.“ This news comes after the band recently released a cover of the song as part of their new EP “Foundation Of Bones.” Guitarist Gabriel Mangold commented:
“Lamb Of God is one of our collective favorites as we all draw a significant portion of our influence from their catalog. We really wanted to do something off of ‘Ashes Of The Wake‘ and this song seemed to check all of the boxes for us. Straightforward and to the point, this was a ton of fun to cover.”
Enterprise Earth have released a new EP titled “Foundation Of Bones.“ The effort features five songs including the title track and an instrumental version of it, covers of Lamb Of God‘s “Now You’ve Got Something To Die For” and Necrophagist‘s “Fermented Offal Discharge,“ and an acoustic version of “There Is No Tomorrow.”
Gabriel Mangold commented:
“‘Foundation Of Bones‘ was a spur of the moment idea that quickly came to fruition. After returning home from our canceled tour, we began writing and finishing up new material. While listening back to some new demos and being stoked on the quality of the mixes, we thought, ‘Fuck it. Let’s give self-production a go and release an impromptu EP!’
Dan [Watson] tracked vocals at home in Indianapolis. Brandon [Zackey] recorded drums with our good friend/sound engineer, Chris Ghazel, in Los Angeles. I did guitars, bass, production, and handled mixing/mastering duties in my tiny home trailer studio rig in Taos, New Mexico. After several days of tweaking, we had a mix that we were all very stoked on and felt comfortable moving forward with our first self-produced release.
I don’t think we intended to accomplish anything specific with this EP other than releasing new music that we were very excited to show the world. However, throughout the process, we realized that we were attaining something vital in addition to releasing new music: the ability to self-produce.
The sound we’re developing is what we want to sound like, and we’ve all become that much more connected to our music now that we’re at the reigns throughout the entire creative and production processes. We are very excited to continue developing our sound and have decided to self-produce our next LP.”
“The covers were something that we had in mind for some time, and the opportunity to do this EP prompted us to take action. Lamb Of God and Necrophagist are two huge inspirations on us, so covering these tunes was a no-brainer. We experienced a ton of electric energy tracking these as they are songs that we’ve loved since we were kids; hopefully, we did them justice!

Enterprise Earth guitarist Gabriel Mangold has shared some acoustic covers of Rings Of Saturn‘s “Mental Prolapse” and Make Them Suffer‘s “Erase Me.“ You can check those out below:
“The Rings Of Saturn video was shot in Taos, New Mexico at Hotel Luna Mystica. It’s a vintage trailer hotel and campground that I currently work at and reside with my tiny home trailer.
The Make Them Suffer video was filmed in the Carson National Forest in Tres Piedras, New Mexico which is about forty-five minutes northwest of Taos. Northern New Mexico is extensively beautiful and I’m fortunate to be living here once again. Having resided in Taos on two separate occasions, I’m familiar with the area and felt that these locations would be perfect for each video, respectively.
The Ring’s song was a result of being on back to back tours with them and not being able to get the extremely catchy chorus melody from ‘Mental Prolapse‘ out of my head. Make Them Suffer had also just released that killer track and the melodies and lyrics seemed to suit themselves very well for an acoustic rendition.
Both of these bands are also my good friends so I’m sure that had something to do with my decisions as well! Both songs also have great melodies which make translating to acoustic quite enjoyable.”
Enterprise Earth have premiered a new video for their song “Scars Of The Past.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Luciferous.”
The group commented:
“‘Scars Of The Past‘ is reflection. The pain of our past mistakes, haunting with a shadow of fear that the pain animates across the bare walls of the present moment. The meaning it holds is an anthem to recovery. Letting go of the pain and recognizing that the pain we experienced is what made us stronger.
It’s a part of who we are. This video was taken at a sold-out show in Atlanta, Georgia. It was able to capture what the song and metal as a whole stands for. Letting go of the past and living life to the fullest in the present moment. If we could turn back time, we would do it again.”
