Titled ‘The Quantum Phase’, their third album represents their most accomplished work to date. Girish Pradhan’s vocals blend melody and rawness, giving each of the eleven tracks a unique character. The addition of the new vocalist has significantly elevated the album’s quality, infusing each track with fresh energy. Standout compositions like the powerful ‘Killer of the Night’ showcase the band’s skill. Throughout the album, echoes of Dokken’s previous material emerge, partly due to Lynch’s distinctive guitar style, notably highlighted in the mid-tempo rocker ‘Hunted’.

Listeners can also enjoy the dynamic ‘Stranger in the Mirror’, with a memorable chorus, while ‘Shattered Glass Heart’ channels echoes of classic bands of yesteryears. The album kicks off ominously with ‘Black Hole Extinction’, opening with a premonitory spoken segment before revealing its essence of gloomy rock. However, the melodic interludes in the chorus invite audience participation. The pace picks up with ‘Silent Winter’, a track that belies its name, and continues with the blues-infused rocker ‘Stand Up’.

The End Machine’s album ‘The Quantum Phase’ impresses with its polished craftsmanship and convincing array of rock anthems, radiating a palpable sense of vitality. The combination of seasoned veterans and emerging talents proves to be a winning formula for the band, heralding an exciting new chapter in their musical journey.
