Biography

Virginia – Year: 2006 - This is a story of friends. From a small town in southwest Virgina, this group has now ascended to play alongside bands like Mudvayne, Nonpoint, (hed)PE, In This Moment, The Autumn Offering, and Straight Line Stitch. The fans have loved them.

Jeremy Counts, Blake Stanley and Stephen Marney who used to jam together in high school. Back in those days they never had a fully assembled band, so they sought out help from Jeremy’s brother, Zack Counts, as a vocalist and began their infamous journey. Jeremy had taken on the songwriting project, where he wrote two favorites, “Diablo” and “Here I Wait”.

Jeremy Counts (guitar), Blake Stanley (drummer), Stephen Marney (Bassist) and vocalist, Zack Counts, now formed the group, “The Endless…”. They recorded their first demo in early 2008.

Their new single, “Diablo” was written during Jeremy’s path to recovery. The album EP is called “The Regretful Events of My Birthday”. The single focuses around the story of a lone warrior entering the pits of hell to slay a demon.

The music style of The Endless… is heavy metal. It is fast paced and gives you a true representation of what this group is all about. Deep, deep vocals, heavy bass, and heavy drums – very much reminiscent of past heavy metal groups like Metallica. But their sound is truly their own. It’s about time we resurrect heavy metal music to the way it once was.

This is The Endless…’s first EP. It has been released digitally for your listening pleasure. You need to listen to this one, even if you are not particularly a heavy metal fan. They bring up old sounds from the 90’s that we all miss. Bravo to The Endless… for not letting heavy metal slip away.

Lyrics

Illusion's Chokehold

Written By: Zack Counts

Black Death, the illusion’s chokehold
The body's warm but you're feeling so cold
And now you hear the siren's song
Eternity won't take that long
Blood and sweat run down your chest
In a darkened state of full unrest
Imagery seems an unkind friend
The laughing seems to never end

Never end, you can't pretend, no not again, it never ends

The first smile you have seen in years
The air is cold, their eyes filled with fear
A lie complete, leaves you with a bitter taste
Feel the warmth creep into your face
Lifeless forms, hate fills the minds eye
The battlefield, you march out to die
Nightmares wake for all of the damned
Save the last dance for the smiling man

Nightmares wake, the creature takes, for humanities sake, the nightmares wake

The smell of rancid tissue decay
The wind blows and everything falls away
Stop the fall into madness waking
Say no words, silence toll is taking
A broken will shattered into dust
Memories lost, no one to trust
Never again will you walk ‘round
A frozen laugh never makes a sound

Never again, this deathly sin, goodbye old friend, laugh never again

Diablo

Written By: Zack Counts

Cut and slash your way to safety
Freedom haunts your every dream
Destroy the ever present darkness
Nothing is ever what it seems
Use your strength and take what's given
Do not hide and run away
In the end it will all be worth it
So you can see the light of day

Don't lose your head, pull it together
You need every bit of your wit
Deeper into the dungeon you'll travel
Farther and farther down in the pit
You look at all the massacred bodies
You wonder how long ago they died
From the catacombs comes a sound
Open the door see what's inside

CHORUS

In the dungeon lurks the beast
Take his head and free his soul
Hurry now you must move quickly
Or the demons will take control
Hack away at all the bodies
Hack until you can wrench free
Kill off everything around you
Open your eyes that you may see

CHORUS

The horrid beast stands in the center
He looks at you with blood red eyes
You summon all that you can muster
Stab and stab until he dies
But his presence is overwhelming
Even after he is dead
He puts his soul into your body
And your whole world turns to red

CHORUS

Winter Rose

Written By: Stephen Marney

If there ever was one that I could love
It would have been you, if there was ever one
Who could make me forsake all others
It would have been you…my winter rose
And then he came

He came to take you away from me, and if I have any say
He will not win you; I will revel in this day
In a summer long ago he named you the queen
Of love and beauty, all of this I have seen

He is the one who will die here today
He is the one who will not walk away
He is the one who will pay for his sins
And I will stop until this ends

I went to war to get you back to me
I hate him with all my heart, my rage is all that I can see
I will meet him in a river of blood
I will kill him for you, my love

He is the one who will die here today
He is the one who will not walk away
He is the one who will pay for his sins
And I will stop until this ends

He has fallen down here before me
I remember our words, Ours Is The Fury
So I raise my hammer, it comes down and brings his end
I thought this would be all over I never knew that he would win

He is the one who will die here today
He is the one who will not walk away
He is the one who will pay for his sins
And I will stop until this ends

I thought I had ended it there on that day
I thought that we would be together for the rest of this age
If I had known I’d never see you again
I would have left it all, this iron throne to him
Now he has you and I’m left with her
But she can never compare to you…my winter rose

The Temptress

Written By: Zack Counts

Finding Cortez's gold
Was the original thought
One stop along the way
Left one man to rot
He made way the anchor
And along came the gale
He watched them move away
On a ship with black sails

It starts as a whisper then turns to a plan
And when it's all over you're short one more man
You leave your old captain on the next piece of land
But mutiny's a temptress that will leave you all damned

Now food turns to ash
And one man is blessed
To not share the fate
Like all of the rest
He gets off the island
And then mans a crew
To get back his ship
And revenge that is due

It starts as a whisper then turns to a plan
And when it's all over you're short one more man
You leave your old captain on the next piece of land
But mutiny's a temptress that will leave you all damned

The blood must be payed
And then they could leave
But the stranded old captain
Had a trick up his sleeve
He fought the new captain
And took his one shot
Threw the gold piece back in
And left him to rot

It starts as a whisper then turns to a plan
And when it's all over you're short one more man
You leave your old captain on the next piece of land
But mutiny's a temptress that will leave you all damned

The Joker

Written By: Zack Counts

Paralysis and Death
I laugh until no end
Nothing hurt people more
Then the mental pain I send

Before now was nothing
The past was only mild
It's a whole new era
And the Joker's wild

The girl thinks heroically
I put her in her place
I throw and infant in the air
Then shoot her in the face

Before now was nothing
The past was only mild
It's a whole new era
And the Joker's wild

Insanity is all that's left, there's nothing more to me
Insanity is all that's left, insane, insanity

Make me ruler, make me king
Who knows better than I
Killing all just for fun
I laugh until I cry

Before now was nothing
The past was only mild
It's a whole new era
And the Joker's wild
Before now was nothing
The bodies are all piled
Create a whole new legacy
Yes, the Joker's wild
