A Journey Through Concern
The Missing Fragments
Label: Ek Product (2011)
The Swedish Electronic band Endless Shame are back. A little more then 18 months have passed since the second studio album Unspoken Words was released and now they return with the third album Generation Blind.
It starts out slow, with the distinct Painkiller before it continues with one of the most powerful tracks on the album. Halo, who also was the first single, is an uptempo song with a very catchy melody. Mattias deliver a very strong vocal appearence, something we already know from previous albums.
Something I witnessed already back with their last album is that they are really good at deliver great variety in all the tracks on the album, but also with a different structure. Some may use the heavy guitar, some more to use it in the background. They also lightly flirt with the EBM style in a great way like with the And One-inspired Sisters Of Mercy. The backing violins in the ironically titled Erase The Beautiful really is beautiful.
The outstanding track The Reaper adds a quite puchy edge to their sound and it sounds really great. An infectious melody, catchy beats and great lyrics. The band created an amazing video for this track. Do not miss it.
Generation Blind feels darker and heavier, but yet more mature then previous albums with a more complex structure, more guitar riffs and driving beats. Once again, they deliver a strong production and great diversity in the tracks. Review from Blackvector Magazine.
