All Ends

All Ends, is an alternative metal band from Gothenburg, Sweden, founded in 2003. It started as a side project of the In Flames guitarists Björn Gelotte and Jesper Strömblad, but currently they are no longer playing with All Ends. With the initial line-up of Jesper Strömblad and Björn Gelotte handling guitars, Emma Gelotte and Tinna Karlsdotter doing vocals, and Joseph Skansås playing drums, they recorded a 5-song demo. The demo was recorded at Studio Fredman and produced by Fredrik Nordström and Patrick J. Sten. In the spring of 2005, Michael Håkansson took over bass duties and Fredrik Johansson took over guitar duties. In August 2005, Peter Mårdklint joined the band as the second guitarist. The most notable feature of All Ends is the duet vocals provided by the two female singers in the band, Emma Gelotte and Tinna Karlsdotter, against a background of heavy melodies. All Ends signed a worldwide contract with Gun Records, a division of Sony BMG Music Entertainment. On May 11, 2007, they released their debut EP, Wasting Life, were the new line-up recorded again the songs of the demo. On November 7, 2007, they released their self-titled debut album, which was later reissued with bonus tracks on September 2008. All Ends took part in the Earthshaker Roadshock Tour in 2007. They played alongside Finntroll, After Forever, Tarot, Die Apokalyptischen Reiter, and Machine Men. The Earthshaker Roadshock Tour was cancelled before completion. All Ends also performed in the annual Sweden Rock Festival throughout its length, June 6–9, 2007.

Discography (That I Own)

  1. Wasting Life (2007) – An EP by All Ends. The band has two female vocalists, which is a switch from a lot of bands. This band is not like most metal bands. While the guitars often have the classic alternative metal sound, everything else has more of a pop element to the music. It’s an interesting listen.
  2. All Ends (2007) – First full length album by All Ends. This album has a definite pop element to it and many of the songs from their demo “Wasting Life” is on this album. This album definitely has a rock n roll element to it. The music is marvelous and the lyrics are catchy.

In Conclusion
I am interested in hearing more from All Ends. The songs on Wasting Life and All Ends were fun to listen to and I want to hear more and find out how they evolve.
