Toronto Thrashers Entropy released their new full-length album in August, Force Convergence and it’s full of shreddy guitars and anthemic bangers, and killer vocal hooks. The band has shared a new guitar playthrough of the song “Ripzone” today through the TechnicalMusicReview site and their YouTube. The clip was shot by guitarist Dan Lauzon in his home studio and edited by Omar Cordy (OJC Photography, Ghost Cult Magazine). Watch the video now!

Lauzon comments on the video:
“‘Ripzone’ is a straight-up ripper!! This was the 1st or 2nd tune written for the album. For years, the working title was ripper! Right from the start, I wanted a less is more approach on this tune for leads; man I wanted to shred all over the middle parts… but knowing this was likely the lead-off track I wanted to melt faces with the crush. Pound it and snap some necks!!
The throwback to some classic Maiden/Priest style harmonies going on in the 2 bridges before the lead really sets the table so when the lead does finally come in, I feel it has way more of an impact. The 2 guitars layered under the lead make it feel huge. It’s the first time I’ve harmonized a lead since the ‘Ashen Existence’ album. It just made sense to me to go for it.
Our tuning is E-flat drop D so the E is C sharp. Have fun with it – warm that right hand up first for maximum jackhammer action!”
