END / Cult Leader – “Gather And Mourn” 12″EP

New Jersey’s END follow-up their Splinters From An Ever-Changing Face LP of 2020 with two news tracks on a disc shared with Utah’s Cult leader – who we last heard on their second album, A Patient Man, in 2018.  Both bands deliver a brutal sonic beating, the collision of two unpredictable forces of nature. Featuring Billy Rymer of The Dillinger Escape Plan on drums END’s tracks are, not surprisingly, a roar of twisted, super-technical mayhem to melt your brain. The fact that the rest of the band are made-up of ex members of Counterparts, Blacklisted, Fit For An Autopsy, Misery Signals, Shai Hulud, and Reign Supreme makes END something of a metalcore supergroup. Cult Leader meanwhile, offer-up a slightly different version of crushing-devastation: a very taught, dense, collision of grindcore, blackened hardcore and technical death metal. Heavy music of cataclysmic intensity. Shit ya’ pants repeatedly. Artwork and layout created by  Converge frontman Jacob Bannon.
