The german fivepiece END OF GREEN answers questions that no one wants to ask. But these powerful journeys into the dark sides of their mind seem quite frightening but still somehow beautiful.

Biography

Don’t build your houses near the shore. Chances are end of green will wash the damn things away. With HIGH HOPES IN LOW PLACES, their seventh record, these South German melancholics return in an impressive and profoundly fierce way. With HIGH HOPES IN LOW PLACES end of green paint the good life black, just to tear it down afterwards. Dream castles and palaces, too. This dark bulldozer is painfully real. But then again: there seems to be a little light in all of that darkness.

After their last effort „The Sick’s Sense“ peaked at an impressive Nr. 21 in the German Media Control Album Charts, HIGH HOPES IN LOW PLACES is a very bold record. Instead of taking a lap of honor, the German five-piece takes a brave trip to its own core and blows it up big style. Obviously they do it in all these glamorous shades of black that make end of green dangerous and irresistible at the same time.

There’s dark rock, goth, alternative, metal, and an undeniable penchant for pop. Now mix that up with end of green‘s sloppy „fuck you“ attitude and you know this one’s going to be an intense all nighter. Don’t let yourselves be tricked into thinking you already understood what end of green are all about. Because that’s exactly the moment end of green hit you like muhammad all. HIGH HOPES IN LOW PLACES is an explosion from the inside, a sonic moult. Brusque, relentless, cynic, yet unsparingly deep and of blinding beauty.

Once and for all they even dispose of the biggest misconception about end of green themselves: end of green are not caught between different stools. They choose to be there and they do it proudly and they do it on purpose. Their sense of „dark“ or „goth“ isn‘t determined by clothes and poses. end of green celebrate the lifestyle of those who smell flowers and instantly look for a coffin. Their constant fight with their own demons might not be pleasant for them, but for listening joy it‘s essential.

Yet calling Michelle Darkness, Rainier Sicone Di Hampez, Kerker, Lusiffer and Sad Sir notorious pessimists might be a little one-dimensional. There actually lurks a little hope in these songs. A little light... before the door smashes shut.

HIGH HOPES IN LOW PLACES was once again produced by Corni Bartels (Killerpilze, Hackneyed) at Munich’s Weltraumstudios. A fertile Alliance that’s insane and logical at the same time.

HIGH HOPES IN LOW PLACES is a pile of lead thrown right into the good life’s face. Because music that doesn’t touch is a waste of time.
