HOW IT ENDS
SO SHALL IT BE
Pennsylviania's How It Ends pile on the sludge on the band's bludgeoning 11-track release. Armed with lyrics brazen with lament and despair, this trio plays fast, downtuned odes that sound like Crowbar revved up on speed. Sounding evil as hell is made easy by this group, as the winning formula of crushing guitars, relentless percussion, and tortured vocals makes How It End the perfect mesh of hardcore's violent tendencies and metal's powerful grooves. Beware the pit when these guys are around, as there's bound to be a scuffle or twenty to flee from, as How It End's music will flip the switch in your brain to insane mode instantaneously.
