End Christian are a band from New York that plays a a mixture of blackened noise, dark ambient, psychedelic, trip hop drone, shoegaze and dream pop and this is a review of their 2017 album "Energy & Strength" which will be released in August by Translation Loss Records.
Spoken word parts start off the album before the music goes into more of a trip hop direction while also adding in elements of dream pop along with some clean singing male and female vocals a few seconds later and on the second track piano's and bass guitars are added onto the recording.
As the album progresses elements of dark ambient, noise and psychedelia are added onto the recording and most of the tracks sound different from each other and some of the tracks are all instrumental and drones are also used briefly as the album progresses and spoken word parts are also used briefly while some of the songs also mix in the atmosphere of black metal and one of the tracks is very long and epic in length.
End Christian plays a musical style that takes blackened noise, dark ambient, trip hop. psychedelic, drone, shoegaze and dream pop and mixes them together to create something original, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark, depressive and philosophical themes.
In my opinion End Christian are a very great sounding mixture of blackened noise, dark ambient, psychedelic, trip hop drone, shoegaze and dream pop and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Froze Red" "Delivered In Shame" "A Relaxing Time" and "Call About Trix". 8 out of 10.
