THE END creates new perspectives on contemporary experimental music. Elements of noise and layers of extreme energy interact with the different experiences of the musicians in genres like free jazz, noise, alternative rock, free improvised music, contemporary music, opera, grindcore, folk and jazz.

The members of the group have worked in a huge variety of
 creative music ensembles over the past years: Cloroform, Møster!, The Thing, Fire! & Fire! Orchestra, Ultralyd, MoHa, Paavo, Datarock, The Core, Noxact, NU- ensemble, Brutal Blues and many more.

The first album Svårmod och Vemod är Värdesinnen was released on RareNoiseRecords in June 2018

for a whole slew of fresh perspectives in experimental sound, cauterising corrosive consignments where free jazz, noise, improvisation, opera and grindcore coexist at the poles of musical perversity. (Jazzwise)

When [the musicians] joined forces in the studio, the resulting sonic maelstrom was so fresh and ferocious, so daring and audacious, so darkly apocalyptic that The End seemed like the only name for this band of rebels. (Bill Milkowski)
