Our Indie Band of The Month feature for January is the U.K. progressive alternative band End Begin. The dramatic and evocative soundscapes on their debut album Empire Fools are strongly influenced by the likes of Tool, Mastodon and Karnivool also has a strong nod to epic progressive rock and, as we said when the album first came out back in July that this new band “really knows how to craft some powerful and ethereal music of the kind that is rarely found on a debut.” (original post link HERE) The band is comprised of lead singer and lyricist, Dave Rangel, guitarist David Freeman, bassist Rory Smith and drummer Dominic Turton. All are extremely talented and really use their vast musical abilities in service to the emotional and intellectual depth they intend to convey on this excellent debut.
