The October issue of Modern Drummer magazine, which features, among many other stories, an interview with ex–Animals as Leaders drummer Navene Koperweis about his new band, Entheos, won’t be on sale for a couple weeks. But this playthrough video of the track “Neural Damage” from the group’s debut album, The Infinite Nothing, should hold you for a while. “‘Neural Damage’ is the fastest and most technical song on the album,’” Koperweis tells Modern Drummer Online. “It was both challenging and fun to shoot this video. I’m happy with the way it turned out, and I hope you all enjoy it.”
In the video, Navene is playing a Tama Birch Silverstar drumset that includes an 18″ bass drum, 10″ and 14″ toms, a 13″ S.L.P. G Maple snare, and Speed Cobra pedals. His Meinl cymbals are Classics Custom Extreme Metal and Classics Custom Dark models. He uses Evans heads and Promark sticks.
Video filmed by Chaney Crabb, edited and audio-mixed by Navene Koperweis.
