"The Scars of Enteric"

Originally founded by guitarist Owen Rees in 2005 as a songwriting project, the band Enteric camouflaged its shape several times during the years, going from a 5 members- male brutal metal band, followed by the introducing of guitarist Dimitar Ralev in 2009 and drummer Will Pickering in 2010, towards their first try as a female fronted group with the entrance (and following exit) of the singer Zul’fiya Muckanova in 2011, to their current set up leaded by the powerful vocals and strong stage presence of the singer Ruby Angelos.

After last summer tour in the most alternative and iconic London venues such as the Camden Proud, the Enterprise, the Boston Music Room and the Intrepid Fox, and the release on the 25th of July 2011 of their EP “SCARS”; Enteric faced a long period of silence and volunteer abstinence from the stage, in which it was possible for them to find the missing piece of the Enteric puzzle in Ruby’ vocals.

The new Enteric got the chance to hit the stage again on the 7th of April 2012 at the Miller Pub, followed on the 11th of the month by the Boston Music Room, the warm up for an unstoppable tour which saw the guys taking in the Retro Bar in Manchester on the 1st of June and the Camden Rock in London on the 2nd by storm, and will see them for their next gigs TONIGHT at the Water Rats (June 18th), at the Fiddlers Elbow on the 21st and on the 22th of June their return to the Boston Music Room in Tufnell Park, alongside Derek Trotson, Brutal Horizon, Hundred and Black Sixteen: an event that will certainly not disappoint.

Showcasing a tantalizing miscellaneous of rough guitars and melodic sounds, bound to their never ending experimentalism all combined together with unmistakable and tormented lyrics, the huge influence of bands like Karnivool, 30 Seconds to Mars and Meshuggah, guide and still Enteric on their personal path to find a definition of themselves as artists and is definitely is going to launch them as the next London based alternative metal band to watch out for.

Enteric are currently busy with an intense recording session in the studio to edit their EP, the guys giving it an edgy feel which is said to put their mature and distinctive sound under a well deserved and long awaited shining light. An undoubted example of it is one of their 9 songs: “Credence”, which starts with the defining and secure beats of Will Pickering’s drums. Coming straight ahead with the decisive riffs of guitarists Owen Rees and Dimitar Ralev to the initial murmuring of and then screaming from the effective voice of Ruby Angelos, the song is a desecrating visualizing of the past, a getting back to personal awareness of the distortion and blindness in which we find ourselves sometimes, from falling apart to starting to fight again to survive; a simple toast to life.

“Fade away” is still on the wave of reflecting on how relationships tear people apart into despair and pain, brought much higher by their expectations, and on how relationships can easily expire too without leaving no trace, followed by the desire and passion, when they are coming to an end.

“Scars” instead comes with a totally different message; it is a shaking wake- up call from a sleepy state of mind, a rebounding anthem and encouragement to fight and not hide ourselves behind our mistakes, our scars.

It is the representation of a mixture of desolation splashed in a profound state of disillusion and turmoil that is the main topic in the lyrics of “Desolate”, which turn to a resurrection full of dignity and revenge in the end.

“The Resolute” and “Innocent child” seem to be themed up together; even if introducing slightly different shades. The first one is an insisting warning, the second sounds much more as a declaration of defence of personal intent and integrity, but they both talk about the same escape from another’s manipulation of our minds, revealing the undeniable truth that what others are taking from us is going to consume them first - The Ringmaster


First official EP release due September 2012!



Through numerous lineup changes, Enteric finally settled on a stable lineup in early 2012. The trademark synthesis of powerful instrumentation, melodic sensitivity, and rhythmic experimentation remains intact, but now comes a new drive and forcefulness that demands to be heard.

The band’s influences are as diverse as the backgrounds of the members themselves. Enteric cite bands such as Tool, Meshuggah, 30 Seconds to Mars and Soundgarden among their inspiration.
