Desert Near The End are a band from Greece that plays an epic mixture of heavy and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Hunt For the Sun" which was released by Metal Scrap Records.
Clean playing starts off the album along with all of the musical instruments sounding very powerful and then the music goes into more of a fast thrash metal direction along with some aggressive vocals and blast beats and after awhile melody is added into both the riffs and vocals and also mixes power and thrash metal together.
When solos and leads are added into the music they bring in a very melodic 80's style power/speed metal sound to the recording and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and all of the songs mix in a great amount of epic structures into a very heavy and aggressive power/thrash metal sound and one of the tracks also shows clean playing making a comeback for a few seconds.
Desert Near The End plays a style of power/thrash metal that is very aggressive and heavy while also bringing in a great amount of melody and epic structures as well as having a slight early 90's sound at times that is very close to the earlier Iced Earth albums, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Desert Near The End are a very great sounding epic heavy/thrash metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Across The River" "Angel Of The Deep" and "A Distant Sun". 8 out of 10.
