Ensoph  


Ensoph is a rather enigmatic Italian combo who formed in 1997 and have recorded several diverse albums over the last decade plus. Their earlier work was more in the avant-garde gothic metal vein, but on Rex Mundi X-Ile the techno/industrial influences are the driving force behind the music, bringing to mind bands such as The Kovenant, Korova, or even Marilyn Manson. The arrangements are quite busy, at times seeming as if they are trying to force too much into an individual song. The odd techno cover of Alice In Chains's "Would?" is novel and interesting, though probably not to AIC fans. Ensoph is not going for an easy or traditional listen, their music is dense and at times unapproachable, but Mundi in particular might be a good fit for the techno crowd.
