Fireworks On Ice
Proudly standing as the only band we have ever signed from and unsolicited demo, By the End of Tonight are a young 4-piece from a tiny town just south of Houston called Alvin, TX. The technical gymnastics are there in spades, so much so that it's not even worth talking about. It's like telling a crowded room that you're naked. Not so obvious right away, however, is the passion with which this EP unfurls. Beginning like a twisted prog-rock Georgia stomp, the four songs here are equal parts hardcore, speed metal, jazz breaks, epic avant-rock and sentimental 80s soundtracks. It's a refreshing change of pace for a scene that is so saturated with one-trick ponies. Plus, it's loads of fun trying to guess which 80s songs from which some of these riffs were lifted.TRACK LISTING
