Dork
’End of Suffering’ ranges from being ridiculously catchy to visceral to heartfelt and has a real shot of being one of 2019’s great rock records.

Clash
His lyrics are blunt yet honest, taking personal demons and harnessing them to stadium-ready anthems like ‘Anxiety’ and ‘Angel Wings’, all the while avoiding self-parody.

Exclaim!

Their third album, End of Suffering, feels less like a compromise between two sounds and more like a cohesive band.

Northern Transmissions
‘End of Suffering’ feels like it’s trying too hard to tick vital boxes for radio airplay with the view of scaling up venue sizes and festival bills; Frank Carter and The Rattlesnakes: defanged.

If “the end of suffering”, the Buddhist philosophy of enlightenment, is about accepting the inevitability of pain, then surely Frank Carter has achieved it with this album.

Lyrically, End of Suffering is an outstanding album, in typical Rattlesnakes fashion, hard hitting topics such as mental health are covered, making anyone who really pays attention to what is being said feel rather emotional.

Interesting development for Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, but it really falls in the second half of the album. In my opinion it just doesn't do anything for me as an album, and being a Frank Carter fan since his days in Gallows, i can say i was disappointed. But if you can find enjoyment out of this new sound, then i deeply envy you.
