Cracking little album from some jolly good headbangers!,
This review is from: Nothing Left to Burn (MP3 Download)
To What End are a bunch of hard-rock, heavy metal preachers, who perform with tremendous enthusiasm, legitimate passion and the genuine talent you'd expect to find from independent bands/artists who are working hard to catch their big break. Nothing Left To Burn is the group's first album, and their potential is blatant from start-to-finish.
Listening to this album reminded me of why I love listening to stuff like Alter Bridge, Sevendust, Trust Company, Eighteen Visions etc. The content on Nothing Left to Burn is fast, furious and ultimately ideal for metal fans. The songs are well-written, and they're all performed with SUCH vim & vigour that you can't help but admire the efforts of the band.
Overall, there's some really energetic and blistering sounds here; the best tracks being "My Demon, My Angel", "It Has to Be", and "Enemy in Me". Criticisms? One or two of the songs haven't quite got a distinctive enough flavour, and I WISH there were a few more tracks to sink my teeth into, but these are only minor issues of what's (all-in-all) a strong debut album. And really, you're getting six tracks here for three quid. It's a no-brainer.
To What End have got a lot of potential going for them. With more discipline, I reckon they'll go far indeed. The levels of enthusiasm and talent clearly show, and the result is an album I would really recommend.
