Left this world...
Genre: gothic metal
End of September is a Swedish female-fronted gothic metal band whose style also has a touch of nu metal. ow, if you like bands like Evanescence, then this probably sound very promising. Unfortunately for me, I am not the biggest fan of the style of metal that Evanescence and similar bands represent.
Let it be known that I definitely have no problems at all with female-fronted bands, and I think that End of September's vocalist Elin Redin is a very gifted singer who does a very good job on this album. Riff-wise, End of September make use of heavy and often groovy riffs with synths and piano overlaid on top, while the drum beats are solid and straightforward. Occasionally, Redin's clean vocals are accompanied by male growls. On the whole, there is nothing a such wrong with the music or the production, and even to my ears "End of September" is a fine listen with a couple of outstanding tracks, 'Silence' being well nigh sensational.
But at the end of the day, the album just does not rock my world. It is good, but not my thing. So, my advices is that you go and check it out for yourself. If you like Evanescence and similar acts, you should definitely acquire "End of Semptember", too.
