ALARIC — featuring within its ranks current and former members of Dead And Gone, Pins Of Light, Noothgrush, Hedersleben and UK Subs — began their voyage in 2008 with an eye toward creating moody and compelling music unlike any other. ALARIC’s previous releases include a debut single Animal/Shadow Of Life (FYBS/ Buried In Hell Records, 2010), a self-titled LP (20 Buck Spin, 2011) and a split 12” LP, with Atriarch (20 Buck Spin, 2012). They released End Of Mirrors on CD, vinyl, and digital formats via Neurot Recordings, and on cassette via Sentient Ruin Laboratories in May 2016. The record was captured and mixed by Skot Brown at Kempton House Studios and provides an emotional and deeply physical journey viatheir shadowy sounds - beginning with influences from such progenitors as Killing Joke and Christian Death to the darkest, heaviest punk bands and psychedelia.

"Its a brave new direction that brings to mind the kind of electronic atmospherics that Tom Constanten added to the sound of The Grateful Dead at the height of their psychedelic San Francisco period during the late 1960s. Here, however, the Kool-Aid has been spiked with battery acid and the vibe is mean, lean and bristling with something that sounds like a hybrid of Motorhead and Genesis." - WIRE

“As a whole, it’s a dark, almost apocalyptic sweep of sound. Sitting alongside the recent releases by Se Delan and Madame Mayflower, 2016 is starting to look like the year goth is reborn. Forget darkwave and all that cal: emerging from a protracted period of social and economic turmoil, uncertainty, unrest, fear, and an all-pervading sense of existential trauma, we’re back in the late ‘70s and early 80s, and this is the real deal.” - AURAL AGGRAVATION
