4 stars The first I heard of this band was when they opened up for Porcupine Tree on their most recent tour, and I was blown away by this band. Yes, there are similarities to Coheed and Cambria, who I am also a fan of, but I think this band is overall heavier and more technical, at least on this release, which I purchased from the band after the show. The album begins with the track, The Word is Born of Flame, which starts off with acoustic guitars and vocals and builds into a heavier part which blends seamlessly into the title track, The End is Begun, which is also my favourite track from this album. This starts of with a riff played on acoustic guitars and then joined by electrics. Overall, a heavy track with some nice melodies, which sums up much of the album. Three is by no means a metal band, but they can be pretty heavy, with great guitar work, particularly by the singer, who plays a quasi flamenco acoustic style, and the lead guitarist, who plays more influenced by classic rock like Zeppelin and Rush. Also interesting is that the band has two drummers, which gives an extra power to the sound at times. While I mentioned how impressed I was with the live show, I don't think the album wholly captured the power this band had live. I'll give it four stars. Not perfect, but highly recommended for those who like bands like Coheed and Cambria and Porcupine Tree.
