FUTURES END, the band featuring Steve DiGiorgio and Jon Allen of SADUS, has inked a deal with Nightmare Records for the release of the group's debut album. According to a press release, "this band is a rare combination of brilliance and amazing musicianship melodic prog-power thrash, sounding like a combination of ALICE IN CHAINS, COHEED AND CAMBRIA and SYMPHONY X."

Commented guitarist Christian Wentz: "The record is raw as hell for a power/prog album. We didn't go for the polish and shine; instead we built it from the drums and bass up and left a lot of the original grittiness of the demos in place.

"With Jon Allen pounding the tubs, and Steve DiGiorgio thumpin the low end, there is a fat element of thrash to it. Marc [Pattison] and I had written guitar riffs that we felt were progressive in nature but had a lot of spontaneity to them. Tons of alternate-picked, super-tight and fast riffs instead of a lot of hanging chords. It was really just the way it happened as we had no idea what we were going to do from song to song. Yet we did leave a lot of room for Fred Marshall [vocals] to bring us his inspired and dramatic melodic attitudes to the songs. In my opinion, Fred is the MVP on this thing. He has some sort of magic in his singing, his presentation, and the imagery of his lyrics."
