From 1988 till 1993 the Dutch doom/death metal band Dead End was considered as one of the pioneers and the most-promising ones in this style. They got attention of quite some good labels, but unfortunately it never came to a full length release, not until after the reunion in 2015. After two demo’s (“Tales” - 1991 & “Purity” - 1992) and the 7” vinyl-single “Wartime In Eden” (1993) the band splitted.
The first songs had more pure Swedish death metal influences from bands as Dismember, Unleashed and Obituary, while the later songs - from the second demo, with new bass player Alwin Roes (Wish, Stygian Dark) - also had more doom influences from bands as Candlemass, My Dying Bride, Anathema and Paradise Lost.
The label Vic Records released these tracks as a compilation cd in 2014. After the release was quickly sold out, now Doc Records does a re-release of this album in a slipcase-cd-edition and the songs are pressed up for the first time on 3 different vinyl-formats (black, clear gold smoked and gold marmered).
