Ending Quest are a band from Sweden that plays a very brutal, raw and old school form of death metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "The Summoning" which will be released by FDA Rekotz.
A very dark and melodic sound starts off the album along with a mixture of leads and riffs and after awhile the music starts getting heavier along with some death metal growls and high pitched screams and after awhile the music starts going into a faster direction along with some blast beats and the band also starts to bring in a mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
You can hear a small amount of synths and spoken word parts in certain sections of the recording and the music sticks mostly to an early 90's style of Swedish death metal while also bringing back a more raw and brutal sound that is rarely utilized in the Swedish death metal revival bands.
As the album progresses the music starts evoking a more dark atmosphere as well as adding clean playing into certain sections of the recording as well as a brief use of bass leads being utilized on one of the tracks and the band also brings in a brief synth instrumental before closing the album with a heavier tack.
Enging Quest are another newer Swedish band that goes for the traditional death metal style of their home country but bring in a more raw, less melodic and brutal approach to t heir sound, the production sounds very old school yet professional all at the same time while the lyrics cover Occultism, Gore, and Horror themes.
In my opinion Ending Quest are a very great sounding old school death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sumerian Invocation" "A Host Of Flesh" "Evocation Of Carnal Flesh" and "The Lament Configuration". 8 out of 10.
