End are a band from Greece that plays a very raw and primitive form of atmospheric and misanthropic black metal and this is a review of their self released 2002 album which was released by 150666 Releases.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being thrown into the music, while the synths bring a very dark, avant garde and atmospheric sound to t he music, as for the bass playing it has a very strong and powerful sound with primitive black metal riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast black metal riffs that are very raw and primitive sounding along with a brief use of clean playing being thrown into the playing in addition there is a brief use of thrash style riffing and there are no guitar solos or leads present on t his recording, as for the acoustic guitars when they are utilized they use finger picking to enhance the darkness that is coming out of the music.
Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams with a brief use of gregorian chants being utilized on one song, while the lyrics cover paranormal, misanthropy and anti human themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it in the true black metal tradition.
In my opinion End are a very great sounding atmospheric, misanthropic, raw and primitive sounding black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Pitless Paranormal Reek" and "Humanitarianism". RECOMMENDED BUY.
