|Ender comes from Middle Earth, or as we also know it, New Zealand. I can't remember having owned or heard an album that came from New Zealand before. This is probably their first release (they have their own label, Dark Room Recordings) and it contains what seems to me to be one song divided in four parts. (I can’t be really sure as I have no information on them and the titles are just 'Part One', '...Two', '...Three' and '...Four'.)|
I would generally place the band in the vaguest and made-for-the-convenience-of-reviewers sub-genre of Avant-Garde. The band places itself somewhere near Until Death Overtakes Me; basically sharing the same Ambient/Doom soundscapes, yet following a more electric and progressive road. In my opinion there are other moments where the band lies closer to Neurosis than UDOM., but without the chaotic structure of their songs.
I don't know what I like about in the band and their music. Somehow they convinced me that they like what they do and that is enough for me, a fact shown from the very good work they did with the packaging of the album. Definitely it will keep its place in my media player for a long, long time.
