3 stars This is a four piece band from Australia aka Down Under. The band was founded in 2002 by a group of friends who started to make music along with the drinking of some beer (according to their biography)! It lasted until 2006 (perhaps because of the poor quality of Australian beer?) until they finally succeeded to make their debut album, it was released by USA label ProgRock Records.

The Third Ending sounds modern and alternating, often from dreamy with acoustic rhythm guitar, piano and warm vocals to compelling with lush keyboards (frequent violin-Mellotron sound) to prog-metal-like atmospheres featuring propulsive drums and varied, powerful guitar work (from slide-guitar to heavy riffs and sensitive soli). Listening to The Third Ending, Rush comes to my mind due to the dynamic, clear and modern sound and Dream Theater because of the heavy guitar riffs. My highlights are Can You Hear Me? (alternating with wonderful acoustic guitar solo and a howling guitar solo, supported by violin-Mellotron waves), Falling (also very alternating with great tension between heavy guitar riffs and ominous sounding choir-Mellotron, this is Progheaven!) and Coming Around (a sensitive guitar solo with pleasant organ waves and an exciting break delivering propulsive guitar riffs and sumptuous keyboards).

To me this debut-CD sounds very promising, I hope this wil not be just another one-shot-band! My rating: 3,5 stars.
