    2002 RELEASES:
    GREEN CARNATION - Light Of Day, Day Of Darkness (Jan. 8th)
    SCHOLOMANCE - The Immortality Murder (Jan. 8th)
    VIRGIN BLACK - Sombre Romantic (Feb. 12th)
    WINDS - Reflections Of The I (April 9th)
    ARCTURUS - The Sham Mirrors (April 9th)

    --------------||
    VIRGIN BLACK - Sombre Romantic
    We are proud to announce that "Sombre Romantic" is now available in North America! Arising from Australia, Virgin Black is the epitome of what is dark in music. "Sombre Romantic" combines a myriad of musical elements and will be appeal to those of you who like Fields of the Nephilim, Arcturus, Enigma, Devil Doll, Nick Cave or even Cradle Of Filth, among others. Our version will also include as a bonus CD songs from their "Trance" EP.
    "Sometimes a band emerges that defies all expectations, takes control of one's body and soul, and never let's go. Virgin Black is precisely that kind of a band" - Deadtide
    "This album is a wonderful journey that I suggest everyone takes" -- 1340mag

    --------------||
    ARCTURUS - The Sham Mirrors
    As we have already announced we are releasing the new and highly anticipated album by Arcturus! The entities who make up the band Arcturus are true musical innovators, as their creativity and experimentation runs at endless plateaus! They have released some of the most influential albums in the scene, and the new one branches out in countless directions as it combines mesmerizing vocals in a gamut of theatrical/progressive/avant-garde/dark-art metal!
    Release date is April 9th!

    --------------||
    WINDS - Reflections of the I
    Also on April 9th, we are releasing the debut full-length by WINDS. This supergroup, which includes members of Arcturus, Mayhem, Kovenant, Sensa Anima, Khold, etc., plays a seamless and most inspiring mix of classically oriented metal, fronted with clean vocals, dark progressive guitars, philharmonics, classical piano and floating synths. A spiral of dazzling melodies and intricate arrangements makes their music a truly superb sonic journey! Two of the members won a Norwegian Grammy Award in 2000 and 1999!
    "As a real stimulation for the mind, WINDS' music ignores any limits, breaks the clichés and summons the innovation as a motto to the band's art." -- Thrashing Rage

    --------------||
    AGALLOCH - The Mantle
    Agalloch is still in the studio and it seems that they will need a few more weeks until recording is completed. Early indication seems to foreshadow that "The Mantle" will be a phenomenal album. The music appears to draw from a lot more diverse references, most notably Pink Floyd and Godspeed You Black Emperor coming to mind!

    --------------||
    COMPILATION - At The End of Infinity [Echoes & Thoughts Of Wonder]
    On February 26th we will be releasing a sampler CD that would include tracks from all our new and upcoming releases:
    Agalloch
    Arcturus
    Green Carnation
    Scholomance
    Sleepless
    Virgin Black
    Winds
    This sampler will be mostly for promotional purposes but a limited quantity would be available at a very low price through our mail-order.

    EXCLUSIVE DISTRIBUTION:
    The End Records proudly distributes these new releases for North America:

    --------------||
    PROPHECY PRODUCTIONS
    The End Records and Prophecy Productions are pleased to announce that they have entered into an exciting new collaboration. After the very successful results of the mutual new Green Carnation release, and the fact that both labels commonly work on the more eclectic, artistic metal styles, they have decided to take it a step further and exclusively distribute and promote each other's releases in their respective territories. Thus, The End Records will be handling releases from both labels in North and South America and Prophecy will do the same in Europe.
    Upcoming releases by Prophecy include: Ewigheim, Autumnblaze, Empyrium, Tenhi, Dornenreich reissues of the first two albums with bonus tracks.

    --------------|
    LISTENABLE RECORDS
    We are also proud to announce that we will be distributing releases by Listenable Records. We will begin with their two newer releases:

    THEORY IN PRACTICE - "Colonizing the Sun"
    One of the most complex bands in the scene today! After 2 highly acclaimed albums they are now offering us a new opus "Colonizing the Sun"! Considered by the band as their most 'accessible' album this is still a highly complex mix of technical death and razor-sharp thrash, bringing to mind classic bands like Cynic and Atheist, and even newer ones like Scholomance and Cryptopsy. The band also pays their tribute to 70s music by covering a song by the progressive band Spark!

    PALE FOREST - "Exit Mould"
    Brand new album by this great female fronted sensational band from Norway. After 2 releases on VOW they have now signed to Listenable records and finally released their new album "Exit Mould". This was recorded with producer Jacob Hansen and similar to their countrymen, The 3rd & The Mortal, this offers an array of complex emotions and sweet melodies into their music.
    This will appeal to fans of The Gathering and anyone that likes accessible rock music with sweet female vocals!
    Exclusive distribution in the USA through The End Records.

    --------------|
    WOLVERINE - "The Window Purpose"
    The new album is now available and can be best described as a mix of Evergrey, Nevermore, and even Dream Theater. The music brings together a progressive and technical style, full of emotions and dark melodies. The creative arrangements are wrapped in strong clean vocal performances but also use some grunts as well that further add to the diversity of the album! Graceful, thought-out and memorable, this makes one mesmerizing listening experience!
    Exclusive distribution in the USA through The End Records.

    --------------|
    SQUEALER - "Under the Cross"
    Now Available! After Squealer's great album "Made for Eternity", the new "Under the Cross" is not only a worthy follow-up but also marks a new chapter for the band. Working together with drummer Mike Terrana and led by Tommy Newton and the legendary producer Andy Sneap (a.o. Machine Head, Testament, Nevermore, Kreator) the new album coalesces the gamut of melodic German metal from power metal ballads to venomous Thrash. One of the greatest German metal releases for the year!
    Exclusive distribution in the USA through The End Records.

    --------------|
    Also coming soon:
    CADAVERIA - "The Shadows' Madame" -- New Italian project which includes the vocalist of Opera IX and 2 members of Necrodeath!
    KHOLD - "Phantom" -- The brand new album by this great black metal band from Norway!
