Artist of the day: Order of Ennead
Blending elements of black, thrash and conceptual metal, Tampa's Order of Ennead have toured the world behind a thick, pounding tornado of guitars and percussion. And they've got their Tampa death metal bona fides intact: Drummer Steve Asheim is also in Deicide, and singer-guitarist Kevin Quirion has toured with Deicide as well.
The band's newest album, An Examination of Being, "wasn't intended to be a concept album," the band stated on their Web site, but it ended up as one. The lyrics touch on religion (Lies Upon the Lips of Judas), creation (This Mortal Journey) and "inner meaning" (A Portal to Rapture).
