Snapcase are one of the most important hardcore outfits of the last ten years. Their original, energy-fuelled sound is both an inspiration and a revelation to anyone that's into them or just heard them. This album is no exception.
I got into Snapcase with Progression Through Unlearing, their highly acclaimed 1997 album, and it blew me away. Since then, they've released Designs On Automotion (1999) and then this album, this year. Designs On Automotion was a good album and certainly got them a lot more mainstream acclaim, but it could be described as a second, but not equal, to Progression. This album is very much a first.
From the first track, Coagulate, you know this is Snapcase - those beefy, fat hardcore riffs, with Daryl's high and shouty vocals. But from track two onwards, it's a new Snapcase that beckons you forward, with unexpected prog-rock experimentationalism, pianos, and even epic-length songs. However, even though it may be an obvious step in a direction that takes them further and further away from all that could be called stereotypically hardcore (which they never were anyway - just in spirit), it is still as vital and refreshing as anything that any punk / hardcore fan may own and relish. Yes, it's modern-sounding, so old school traditionlaists may find it 'Too Trendy' or whatever, but that's just an opinion.
My opinion is that Snapcase are there, among the few truly great hardcore bands left around these days, keeping alternative music alive.

With the current resurgence in hardcore, witness great recent albums from converge, hatebreed, dillinger escape plan and Thursday. I was wondering how relevent the return of Snapcase would be. They don't disappoint from the opening bars of coagulate right through the album is melodic hardocore of the highest order, with lyrics that will not only excite but challenge as well. If you like your music loud and hard with a touch of melody this is the album for you.

The hardcore kids are gonna hate this! 28 Dec. 2002
By Kerry Ledbetter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Is the hardcore scene getting more jaded and closed-minded on purpose? Hardcore used to be the outlet for all those individuals who wanted to be so creative that they didn't fit in anywhere else. Now, there are all these little "rules" about what's hardcore and what's not. But don't worry, in a few years the kids will grow up a little and stop worrying about their hardcore image and the fresh group of immature kids will take over. Then, the entire hardcore scene will shift yet again and have a totally new set of "rules" that you have to follow to be "true". The one thing that will remain the same, however, is that hardcore is no longer open-minded or creative. Every time a hardcore band brings in new influences or does something truly special, they are practically booted out of the scene or pressured into going back to a formulaic sound.
Enter: Snapcase
This band was one of the few hardcore bands that somehow walked the line of being "true" while still pushing the genre to keep evolving. With 'End Transmission', they've finally pushed too far and music lovers everywhere can be greatful. This just isn't hardcore anymore. It isn't stilted into any of the formulas that are mandated for modern hardcore. This isn't all power chords and breakdowns. 'End Transmission' is artistically fresh, musically creative, and emotionally intense.
Snapcase have blended their hardcore roots with a melodic, almost indie rock feel. Don't think this is "emo" by any stretch of the imagination. It's too focused and precise for that. The songs are catchy without ever being formulaic. Accessible without ever seeming commercial. Dark without ever feeling morbid. There are touches of ambience and electronics, but they fit perfectly in the futuristic, yet organic vision of the album. Snapcase is still making the music of the underclass - it's just the underclass of the future.
This kind of album is dangerous to the jaded, elitest mindset of the modern hardcore scene. It makes people look at music a little differently and breaks the "rules". While Snapcase will lose a good portion of their audience with 'End Transmission' they'll gain new fans by the dozen. This crosses boundaries with it's creativity and freshness. I have no idea what genre this would fall into ("post-hardcore" seems a popular term), but whatever it is, it's too original to be hardcore.

very refreshing 24 Sept. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
anyone whos heard "progression through unlearning" by snapcase will know that it had solid riffs that were very hard and good catchy song structures that would stick in your head for weeks.
Like all hardcore albums, they PTU was very short and sweet and a definite classic. Its very sad to see good hardcore bands go under and quit or sell out, but its a solid fact of music, music has to move on and stay fresh or its not worth writing recording or buying. So when a band like snapcase peaks in their heavyness after their second album, you have to wonder where they will go next. Well after listening to end transmission, i can say that it isnt a progression throught unlearning pt 2 or even a designs for automotion pt 2, its not as heavy, but fortunatly for snapcase they actually they pulled a new album off that doesnt sound like their past work at all but still sounds like snapcase. The whole album, right down to the packaging gives off a very different atmosphere. Overall I must say that im impressed where snapcase is going. The songs arent standard snapcase structure, they experiment alot and even pull off five, six minute songs which is rare. Yet with all these new ideas brought to the table, you'd think that there would be some confusion, but snapcase pulls it off in excellent form. Snapcase fans should indulge in this masterpiece.

Another solid disc from a solid band 25 Oct. 2002
By Gregory M. Eccleston - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Snapcase deliver on one of the most anticipated hardcore albums of the year. The familiar Snapcase power and package is present throughout the entire CD, but Snapcase is definitely looking to make a statement. It sounds as if there have been heavy influences from bands such as the Deftones and At The Drive-In throughout the disc as Snapcase have raised the bar in hardcore by involving ambient breaks and making the music much more complex than your average hardcore album. Even with the experimentation there is still the trademark sound and the songs on this disc are no less heavy than anything on one of their prior releases.
While this release treads new ground there are a few bumps along the road but it only leaves more room for growth. Look for this to be a pivotal recording in the band's history, I can't wait to hear what their next release will sound like.

Surprisingly Good 29 Sept. 2002
By Matt Anich - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I first heard about Snapcase from a friend when he gave me their album End Transmission. I was skeptical at first, but as I began to listen to it I was amazed at how talented this band really is. This album has excellent guitar riffs mixed with a distinct brand of vocals. I especially enjoyed the vocal effects used in A Synthesis of Classic Forms. I also liked the songs Coagulate, Exile Etiquette, and Hindsight. The only negative comment that I have is that all of the songs start to sound the same after a while. I had to take off a star due to lack of vocal variations. All in all, this album is worth buying. I hope that this review helps.

Era Ended -or - He Just Said "Baby", Didn't He? 23 Jan. 2012
By Khyron - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
By 2002, Hardcore was on life support. Most of the foundational bands: Quicksand, Inside Out, 108 and Mind Over Matter had long since called it a day. In 1998 Refused gifted us with "The Shape Of Punk To Come", the prophetic shot across the bow that the end was in sight for this scene. Even by then pop had crawled out from under the rock Grunge remanded it to and Nu Metal, like audible tuberculosis, had utterly infected our radios. By 2002, the writing was on the wall (probably with little "X"s around it), that it was time for Hardcore to pull the plug.

Unlike Grunge, HC was not going to die a slow, uninspired death; poisoned by a Kid Nickel Smack or Seven Mary Creed. Not even close. Snapcase, one of the genre's most well respected bands both in the studio and on a stage, insured that not only their own legacy, but that of 90's hardcore would be properly cemented. So much more than a death rattle, Snapcase's final proper record was and remains their most complex and polarizing effort (provided we go ahead and ignore Bright Flashes, which we will). To this point, no 90's Hardcore band was more formulaic than Snapcase. They were the poster children for surgical precision Hardcore, delivering record after record of audible energy and frenetic DIY ethos. With End Transmission however, Snapcase threw us a curveball. Perhaps that's why this record maintains its underdog status among the "die hards" and a place of honor in my record collection.

From the pale purple cover to the trapezoidal bar code to the cleverly folded inner sleeve, even the packaging hinted that this was not going to be a standard issue Hardcore record. The album doesn't start that way, however. "Coagulate" is meat and potatoes Snapcase and arguably one of their best songs on this record or any other. What follows is why we're here. Much of the rest of End Transmission plays like Daryl's vision of a post-apocalyptic, dystopian future. In place of songs about self-reliance and strength through perseverance, we're given warnings about a police state and Daryl's promise that we won't see him there. The abandonment of their standard song structure opened up a world of possibilities in song writing for this band, best executed in both "The Beat" and "Exile Etiquette".

The record is not without its faults. Just like Jake and Elwood Blues found out that Country AND Western are the only two types of music, Daryl has always had exactly two voices in his repertoire: "scream" and "almost scream". Listening to "A Synthesis Of Classic Forms" it's so easy to hear the need for a clear female vocal in the verses. Contrasted with Daryl's screams during the choruses, this could have been the band's greatest singular triumph. The argument could also be made that the "concept" did not go far enough. While "ID/Hindsight", the albums final track, earns points for sounding like an ethereal Canon in D, it offers no real conclusion for the listener. It should also be noted (both for the purists and those who welcomed this new direction) that many of the songs on End Transmission are interchangeable with Snapcase's two previous records. Call it a criticism if you like, I think of it more as a point of order.

So why does End Transmission hold the distinction of being the last "true" Hardcore album? The answer has less to do with Snapcase and much more to do with what was going on in the New England underground scene. Alongside End Transmission, 2002 saw the release of "Alive Or Just Breathing" from the relatively unknown Massachusetts band Killswitch Engage. Featuring absolutely no guitar solos and one of the most potent and dynamic screams ever given to a singer, KSE wrote a brilliant first chapter in what would become the next wave of American metal, or Metalcore if we have to go there. In a sense then, hardcore didn't simply die, it was assassinated by a younger, faster version of itself. Fortunately for us Snapcase gave us one last inspired record before giving up the ghost.

Bright what? You're ruining the ending, baby.
