Review by: Urban "Wally" Wallstrom
I know that some may now think of me as Anti-Italian, but nuthin' could be further from the truth. I love the country, their culture, language, calcio (that's footboll), food, women, wine, and pretty much all of their other ARTists with the mere exception of most heavy metal acts and their more brutal followers. Endless Pain is just another fine example of a rather average sounding aggressive Thrash/Death metal act from northern Italy and Brescia?
Are they crap? certainly NOT!!! But's it's so, 'been there, done that', and to be perfectly honest, I'm not a major fan of the 90's sound of Death which they've decided to mix inbetween their fine 80s structure of thrash metal. Their lead vocalist goes under the name of 'Hate' and literally spits and growls like a man possessed by demons and, ehhh, hate. Monotone fits like a glove when everything is highlighted and it's like if you're in a chamber of darkness where utter blackness consumes your entire body and soul. I wish he would tone down the cookie monster approach as the riffs aren't bad at at really.
