THIS ENDING was created in 2005 but the history goes further back than that.
The band existed in a previous incarnation as A Canorous Quintet which was
formed in 1991 by Fredrik Andersson, Mĺrten Hansen and Linus Nirbrant. After
some changes the line-up was complete with the addition of Leo Pignon and
Jesper Löfgren. The band released an Ep; "As tears" 1994 and two full length
albums; "Silence of the world beyond" 1996 and "The only pure hate" 1998.
They performed numerous shows with acts like At the gates, Dissection,
Hypocrisy and Edge of sanity to name a few, and got known for being a very
aggressive live band. They have received a cult following since the mid
nineties especially in Sweden and Germany.
A Canorous Quintet has been inactive since 1998 when the members decided to
go different ways. Linus, Jesper and Fredrik continued with Guidance of Sin.
Fredrik however left in 1999 to continue his duties in Amon Amarth. Leo
pursued his commitment in Niden div. 187 and Mĺrten, apart from singing in
October Tide amongst other bands, later joined Sins of Omission.
The first seed for a new collaboration was sown when Fredrik recorded a 5
song demo under the name Curriculum Mortis in 2004. During winter of
2004/2005 the members played with the idea of regrouping for something new
and early 2005 they decided it was time for a new era. During the spring and
summer 13 songs were created, three of which were chosen for the downloadable
demo "Let the world burn" recorded at Offbeat Studio later the same year. The
demo was sent to one record label only and landed the band a deal on Metal
In September 2006 THIS ENDING once again entered Offbeat Studio to record
their first full-length album "Inside the machine". 10 songs of top notch
technical, brutal yet melodic metal were recorded for an early 2007 release.
Expect the best possible dark and destructive death metal from these high
