THIS ENDING was created in 2005 but the history goes further back than that. The band existed in a previous incarnation as A CANOROUS QUINTET which was formed in 1991 by Fredrik Andersson, Mårten Hansen and Linus Nirbrant. After some changes the line-up was complete with the addition of Leo Pignon and Jesper Löfgren. The band released the Ep "As Tears" 1994 and two full length albums; "Silence of the World Beyond" 1996 and "The Only Pure Hate" 1998. They performed numerous shows with acts AT THE GATES, DISSECTION, HYPOCRACY and EDGE OF SANITY to name a few, and became known for being a very aggressive live band. THIS ENDING has had a loyal cult following ever since.
THIS ENDING continue to deliver their own brand of death metal in grand fashion with Dead Harvest, evolving a dark concept and further distinguishing the band from its contemporary peers. Spanning from heavy riffs and mesmerizing melodies to blast beats and industrial sounds - Dead Harvest has it all. Expect some of the most brutal and dark melodic death metal ever heard from Sweden! The music of THIS ENDING embodies the qualities of technical death/thrash and the catchiness of melodic death metal! A combination that is refreshing to the genre yet still brutal and dark enough to scare the sh$t out of your parents. Ushering in a new era of Swedish death metal, THIS ENDING is brutality and darkness, yet melodic and catchy. "Dead Harvest" features 10 tracks of nonstop violence with astonishing musicianship and a new approach to songwriting that leaves you wanting more.
