Track: The Halo Effect – The Needless End

Markus Esselmark

The Halo Effect have shared new track ‘The Needless End’, in anticipation of the band’s debut album ‘Days Of The Lost’, due 12th August via Nuclear Blast.

Frontman Mikael Stanne tells about the track: 

“The Needless End deals with the crippling inability to deal with abstract problems. Issues that just seem too huge or incomprehensible falls by the wayside in order to deal with more immediate but less important issues. We end up somewhere not because we want to but because we were unable to understand what we needed to do. There is an intensity to this song and a uplifting melody that I think suits this idea. Among all the anger and resentment it’s also hopeful and has an infectious groove and drive.”

A glorious-sounding track that rises and falls through the rampaging verses and the chorus dominated by the melodic theme. Stanne shines with his impressive growl, as he has done on all the singles, and the band bring the heavy during the breakdown. Nothing short of epic.
