The End: Within Dividia

Sound — 10
A key release in anything hinting towards the genre of "Math-Core" and "Technical Metal", "Within Dividia" takes technicality into a chaotic dream of ecstasy. Every song reaches sporadic time signatures, crisp destruction, and instrumental panic. All the tracks have a high heart-attack rate of splitting-tempos in half, then rising them back up again out of nowhere, into utter original ballistics. There are no complaints within "these walls". Raw, Canadian talent, "The End" spew forth a neck-breaking landslide of 8 tracks, involving some of the heaviest riffing I have heard in years. "These Walls", a killer start to this masterpiece blasts the surrounding elements to mere dust when played. The amount of explosive distortion packed behind each slide of the fretboard is pure beauty, as the drums are pounded until broken, cymbals and skins littered with psychotic strokes/rolls.

Another polished gold to the album is the vocal work, absolutely tearing the ears from your head with screams/growls/and shrieks to explode any blister on the skin. Mid track song "The Sense of Reverence", how the vocals & instruments flow perfectly into "The Scent Of Elegance", pumping the adrenaline through the speakers into the veins. Their lead vocalist promotes incredibly ferocious vocal disorder, enriching the album with a horrific sense of hell. Lyrics reach ocean depths surrounding inner struggles, asphyxiating, problematic love, and severe depression.

Overall Impression — 10
People may argue their opinions on a bit of a style change comparing this to their new album "Elementary", but "The End" still have a hold on their Tech-Core roots, putting forth some of the best of their genre. This is an absolute must if you are seeking massive waves of brutality, beautiful poetic lyrics, and to defy many musical boundaries.
