Abandon ‘The Dead End’ was one of the most crucial albums in the realm of extreme metal of the last 10 years. Released in 2009 ‘The Dead End’ was a post-mortem album recorded by the Gothenburg natives after the death of the lead singer, Johan Carlzon. It has been written and confirmed by his family that Johan had struggled with depression in his later life and he died of an overdose in 2008. The band then decided to finish the album and I am glad they did. The quality of the recordings is paramount, some of these songs are so intense and crushing that they needed to be released to give Johan the last credit he deserved. RIP Johan.
