WithoutEnding

WithoutEnd is yet another cool metal outfit from down under. This threesome has only been around since 2001, and this is their debut album. They are a lot more complex and progressive, than the other bands we know from Melbourne (Vanishing Point, Eyefear & Black Majesty).

Their music has some strong roots in US progressive metal, and really takes some time and quite a few spins before it starts to sink in ... but if you take the time, then this album shows a lot of promise. They do not seldom remind me of another great progressive metal band from down under: Vauxdvihl, with their very emotional vocals. Nicholas Georgakopoulus has a very unique and strong voice, which he uses very skillful. His drumming is also very good, and along with Sam Schepis on bass, he builds a strong rhythm-section, Michael Totta on guitars gives the band a nice metal edge with his playing ...

WithoutEnd is a very unique and talented band, that surely deserves your attention, if you are into progressive metal ... I really like this album, and please check them out ...

Recommended tracks: "Again", "Analyse" and "I Still Remember"
