Review by Mimi Robins
I really enjoyed this EP by Italy’s modern metal band End of Skyline – I played it on repeat while packing up my room and preparing for a move, to the extent that I’ve almost got them memorized. My first impression of the songs and the vocals in particular is that they’d be the perfect to sing along to in a car.
Though I wasn’t sure what to expect, I found “Protection” to be heavier than expected – it just hit me in the face. I was grinning immediately, and replayed the first track a few times because I enjoyed it so much. It’s been stuck in my head for ages. “Reproach” is still moderately heavy, and I love the guitar lines in it. The bridge is stuck in my head and I love it. “Alone” is a little more low-key, and there’s something about it that just makes me feel very still and quiet. The tone of it struck me as a really well-thought-out goodbye, something that hit me very hard as I prepare to move.
“End of Skyline” was just the perfect thing I needed to hear right now, and I’m so glad I came across it. I didn’t know what to expect when I first gave this a listen, but I was pleasantly surprised. I’d recommend End of Skyline to fans of Lacuna Coil or ReVamp. I really look forward to hearing more from them!
