Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes - End of Suffering
Published: 1:45 pm, May 02, 2019

Frank Carter and his venomous Rattlesnakes are back with what is a surprisingly good third record ‘End of Suffering’. Opening track ‘Why A Butterfly Can’t Love A Spider’ is a slow creeping intro to the rest of the record while ‘Tyrant Lizard King’ (featuring Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello) is ridiculously catchy. Songs like ‘Heartbreaker’ and ‘Kitty Sucker’ sum up what Carter has aimed to do with this record, a shot at the mainstream rock sphere with his vitriol intact.

Fans of Carter’s heavier output will undoubtedly be disappointed but there’s no need to be, this album contains some of Carter’s best work in his long and illustrious career. On ‘Angel Wings’, Carter’s vocal performance is intense, fierce, and dark while on ‘End of Suffering’, which sees bandmate Dean Richardson break out an acoustic guitar, Carter’s vocals are wonderfully tender as he sings about his worries of being a father.

’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.
