Screamy, chaotic, metallic hardcore. You know the drill. There are a million bands around these days that sound like this. So many, in fact, that it’s hard to stand out with any kind of originality within the genre. Some of these bands can stick out because they are relentlessly fast (Discordance Axis) or super heavy (Akimbo) or have really good vocals (Daughters) or are really mathy (Dysrhythmia). The End of the Universe aren’t particularly memorable. They’re good at what they do, but unfortunately it’s not quite enough. This isn’t a bad record, it’s just not anything special. Really nice cover art, though.
