Album Review Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes - End of Suffering

Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes - End of Suffering

A bold, brave effort that’ll continue to see them rise through the rock ranks.

Rating:

Ever since the release of fiery debut ‘Blossom’, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes have focused on pushing their own musical boundaries. While follow-up ‘Modern Ruin’ saw them eschew more of their earlier hardcore-infused tendencies, it’s on ‘End of Suffering’ that they’ve grown into fully-fledged rock titans. In Frank Carter, the outfit have always had an effervescent and chaotic frontman, yet it’s with their third album that his brand of cathartic storytelling manages to be both intensely personal and explosively extroverted. The devastating one-two punch of ‘Anxiety’ and ‘Angel Wings’ – which sits exactly in the middle of the record - takes his fraught tales of existentialism and transform them into a rallying call-to-arms, tailor-made for giant stages and lighters-aloft singalongs. A bold, brave effort that’ll continue to see them rise through the rock ranks.
