“metal lunatics and progressive fanatics should still listen to this otherwise recommendable piece of metal” – Rock Hard (Germany) – Ashen Existence Review
“This new full length (their third) is a pure face-ripper, and it charges forth like a possessed beast armed to the teeth with malevolent riffs. Leading the charge is singer Ger Schrienert, whose trademark screams remain bristling with the old-school thrash edict. His vocal range always teetered between terse shouting and was layered over with his trademark high-pitched wail. ” – Dead Rhetoric – E3 Review
“Here’s another mind-shatteringly awesome discovery I made on YouTube recently. A band so fuckin’ incredible that I’m absolutely certain they would’ve gone on every single mixtape I ever made as a kid had I discovered them when they were actually active. ” – Aversion Online
“Tunes like ‘Succubus’ show the band can slow things down for heavy effect, while ‘Bloodrites’ thrash fast and catchy. ‘Darkness Eclipsed’ is a success of a sprawling prog-metal closer inspired by RUSH and DREAM THEATER… definitely deserving of some respect and a few loud spins. Welcome back, Entropy!” – Bravewords – E3 Review
“E3 is only Entropy’s third album but their heritage and history stand out hugely with this release. “Means to the End” and “Premonition” immediately bring to mind the best of this era while “Bloodrites” draws you in with its power and aggression.” – Planet Mosh – E3 Review
““Means To An End” puts everything in a Thrash order with a headbanging rhythm and vocals that reminded me of the early SACRED REICH. Everything you know or have experienced in the early US based Thrash is here, served with a vintage sound production that has absolutely nothing to do with triggered drums or over-compressed vocals and plastic guitar distortion. No, ENTROPY sound like they play live in your garage as loud as possible, not paying attention to the neighbors’ complaints.” – Metal Kaos – E3 Review
“Their debut album Ashen Existence turns 25 years old this year and features dirty death metal-inflected thrash, akin to an unholy alliance between Slaughter and Forbidden. Blastbeats, Overkill-style shrieks and psychotic solos supply an abundance of action.” – Hellbound
“Ashen Existence is, for the most part, a wise voyage through technical thrash with quirky, progressive flavors and some of the finest death/thrash drumming this side of Protector’s late, great Michael Hasse.” – The Metal Archives
“Entropy’s Ashen Existence really hits the mark. The debut of this group must be one of the best “unknown” albums ever heard, composed of highly complex but fully consistent thrash metal. The sound of this album is unique and stylish, a wall of captivating riffs and distinctive vocals that range from high screams to low growls with ease.” – Classic Thrash

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.
