End of All delivers a torrential downpour of volatile heavy metal on their eponymous debut, extending their meaty repertoire to encompass massive metal epics that exceed the six-minute mark quite often. While this is not necessarily a detractor, End of All's incessant crunch wears thin shortly after the blistering "Days That Never Change." The remainder of the album travels down a well-worn road of average death metal and never quite excites the listener. Loyal metalheads should find plenty here to embrace, as Jeremy Stowers' thundering double bass slaughters the ears with enraged force and William Jackson's rotting-throat vocal technique is similar to that of Krisiun. Jamie King's outstanding production allows this effort to adhere to a thin level of appreciation, which allows the songs contained within to slam with a much cleaner intensity. End of All isn't exceptionally original nor exciting enough to proclaim the new messiahs of heavy metal have arrived and this self-titled release is a good listen but nothing more.
