Not sure how you began your New Year, but we did by continuing to find talented new bands to feature. Point in case, Chicago, IL metal trio, Endmember, which consists of musicians Greg Livas (guitar, vocals), Frank Lato (bass, vocals) and Troy Hoff (drums). These guys are mad new but they rip pretty hard! Grab a free download of their track “Miserable” then read on.

The guys literally released their debut album Pathetic yesterday, January 1, 2016. Recorded and mixed at Bricktop Recording in Chicago with Andy Nelson from Weekend Nachos, and mastered at Audiosiege in Portland, OR by Brad Boatright, Pathetic is 8 songs of metal/death metal that somehow also manages to inject elements of thrash, doom, sludge, and even black metal. It’s a wicked mix and it works very well. The digital album can be found on Bandcamp.
