End Of Green – “The Painstream”

End Of Green – “The Painstream” (Napalm Records)

Self described as ‘depressed subcore’ this German goth rock band have been around since the early 90s, playing well renowned festivals like Wave-Gotik-Treffen and Wacken Open Air. These days I tend to feel a more emo rock style characterized by waves of teen heart wrenching melodies along with Michelle Darkness’s sad vocals on songs like ‘Don’t Stop Killing Me’ and ‘Standalone’ – perfect accompaniment for a rainy day! Interestingly they don’t have a German Kraut rock sound making them universally appealing to emos all over the world (groan – Ed) or anyone in love with autumn lol. Every now and then they do try and ramp it up like on the rock n roll ‘Chasing Ghosts’ and the darkwave title track but for the most part sadness is bliss with End Of Green.
