Album Notes
„What a question! Of course the new The Very End album is awesome! Otherwise I wouldn't have done it!“, states legendary producer Waldemar Sorychta (e.g. Sentenced, Moonspell, Tiamat, Samael). And he is damn right!

Massive, modern & unique – thrilling songwriting and an open minded interpretation of modern metal contribute to the genuine sound of The Very End's new album „Mercy & Misery“ as well as the heavy, yet always organic and dynamic mix of Sorychta and his partner in crime, Dennis Koehne.

Besides Sorychta some other familiar fellas already gave proof of their taste and made the following statements to „Mercy & Misery“, which by the way has been put in perspective by Killustrations (e.g. Aborted, Dew-Scented, Zyklon):

"The Best metal to come out of Germany in a long time!!" (Nick Barker / Lock Up, Ex-Cradle Of Filth, Ex-Dimmu Borgir, among others)

"It was a long time since I was so impressed by a german band. The Very End shows that you can succesfully combine quality with heart and honesty and I strongly believe in their powerful approach. A striking album that will leave noone untouched and an inspired and emotionally intense effort by one of the most promising new acts in Europe." (Tomas Lindberg / At The Gates)

"Impulsive and dynamic, yet refreshingly melodic Thrash Metal with big hig-potential!" (Leif Jensen / Dew-Scented)

„Awesome! Iam impressed. After the debut had a very positive impact on me already, you get the ultimate package now. After the perfectly arranged intro „Ball And Chain“ jumps out of the speakers with no mercy. Man! You instantly notice that crystal clear yet powerful production. Waldemar Sorychta had his fingers in the pie, and this is defnitely a bonus. Every musician has a really high recogintion value, which many new releases lack. After listening to the album more often, the wide range of inspiration sticks out, and it really offers something for everybody. They know how to slow down at the right moment just to go fullthrottle again. But always rich in variety and creative. The Very End left a mark and stand out of the masses of so called Neo-Thrash bands. I only hope that some of the makers of the music industry realize that, too! Keep it up, guys!“ (Tom Angelripper / Sodom)

But being children of the industrial Ruhr-Area, The Very End know for sure that the sweetest praise ain't worth a dime if they don't work off their own balls, too! Thus, the guys recently inked a deal with one of the most prestigous german metal labels, SPV/Steamhammer, as the foundation stone for a succesful future partnership. Not to mention that – despite of their prophetic monicker – the metal world will hear a whole lot of The Very End in the future!

After the acclaimed debutalbum „Vs. Life“ (Dockyard 1 Records, 2008) The Very End have tightened the screws and skillfully poise between classy melodies and 40-ton-groove. Pulling off brutal thrash steamrollers with a bluesy-doomish middle part like „Ball And Chain“, melodically impulsive songs with state-of-the-art guitar solos like „Dead Is The New Alive“, atmospheric tracks with some haunting yet enchanting acoustic elements like „Rat Nation“ or the crunching yet catchy „The Leper“ - „Mercy & Misery“ offers metal in all its shades, yet still reduced to the core. Categories are out of place, because The Very End are their own!
