ALL ENDS' video for the song "Wasting Life" is available for viewing below. The track is the title cut of the group's debut EP, which was released on May 11 through G.U.N. Records. The CD was produced by Christian Wolff (WITHIN TEMPTATION, RAGE, LINGUA MORTIS) and the Resetti Brothers (IN EXTREMO, EXILIA). Two video clips from the EP's recording sessions in Germany have been posted online: Clip#1, Clip#2 (Real Media).
According to the band's official bio, "ALL ENDS, founded in 2003 in Gothenburg, Sweden, feature a sound housing somewhere between rock and metal that lives first and foremost through the fascinating voices of the two front-ladies, Tinna Karlsdotter and Emma Gelotte. It is this two-pronged female approach that distinguishes these Swedes from the rest of the crowd and gives them their own unique sound. The debut EP 'Wasting Life' doesn't sound like NIGHTWISH or WITHIN TEMPTATION or EVANESCENCE…on the contrary, it sounds like nothing other than ALL ENDS!
"And if the name 'Gelotte' sounds familiar, then it should, because IN FLAMES guitarist Björn Gelotte is the brother of singer Emma. Björn and his bandmate Jesper Strömblad are highly creative songwriters with a huge musical spectrum, and the inspiration for ALL ENDS. Jesper and Björn's role with ALL ENDS is solely a creative involvement behind the scenes.
"The fact that ALL ENDS is made up of five top musicians of their genre is evident in the magnificent 'Alone', which skillfully treads the line between metallic wrecking ball and pop anthem. And the title track, 'Wasting Life', is also equally characterized by the simultaneously powerfully and melodic guitar work that is simply irresistible in combination with the sleek grooves and whale-sized hooks."
