THIS ENDING, the Stockholm, Sweden-based band formerly known as THE PLAGUE (before they were forced to change their name for legal reasons), recently entered Offbeat Studio with guitarist Linus Nirbrant at the helm to begin recording its sophomore album, "Dead Harvest", for a late 2008 release. Songtitles set to appear on the CD include "Dead Harvest", "Parasites", "Tools Of Demise" and "Deathtrade".
Commented the band: "We have finished recording drums and rhythm guitars. Due to some technical problems we're slightly delayed but hopefully nothing that will affect the release later this year.
"In other news, this past weekend we shot our first video. It was filmed at two different locations in Stockholm by director Marcus CF. Tinnerholm with crew. For the video we chose the song 'Parasites' from the forthcoming album 'Dead Harvest'."
THIS ENDING's debut album, "Inside the Machine", was released in Europe in December 2006 via Metal Blade Records. The CD was recorded at Offbeat studio in Stockholm with producer Linus Nirbrant. Mastering was done by Peter in de Betou at Tailor Maid.
According to a press release, "The music of THIS ENDING embodies the qualities of technical death/thrash and the catchiness of melodic death metal! A combination that is refreshing to the genre yet still brutal and dark enough to scare your parents. Ushering in a new era of Swedish death metal, THIS ENDING is brutality and darkness, yet melodic and catchy. 'Inside the Machine' features 10 tracks of non stop violence with astonishing musicianship and a new approach to songwriting that leaves you wanting more."
Formed in 2005, THIS ENDING existed in a previous incarnation as A CANOROUS QUINTET. After several years of absence from the metal scene the guys decided that the time was right for a new era. Members of the band are/have been active in the following acts: AMON AMARTH, GUIDANCE OF SIN, NIDEN DIV. 187 and SINS OF OMISSION, among others.
