The End Canadian Music Week Toronto ON, March 5 to 8

The End are incredibly talented; I don’t know many bands that can start off without a bassist and then add one in the middle of a song. That act alone was a big holy shit factor. The band like to dabble with a progressive/ambient take on metal adding illuminating and atmospheric elements with differing guitar tones, sounds and a vocalist whose passion for their music was evident while he was pounding a floor tom in between his trachea turbulence. From some vantage points it might have seemed like he was just so into his own music he was air drumming, but a new vantage point would indicate otherwise. The End have been at it for a while now and something tells me it’s not even close to over.
