The End finns med på In Flames nya album Battles, som släpps 11 november via Nuclear Blast. Albumet är producerat av Howard Benson (Motörhead, Body Count, Sepultura).
Bandets gitarrist Björn Gelotte kommenterar låten: ”It’s a fairly straightforward In Flames song. Having said that, it’s a really positive vibe [to] the song. It’s not a slash-your-wrists kind of vibe; it makes you realize to just make sure you appreciate that moment.”
Om skillnaderna mellan Battles och föregående album Siren Charms säger han: ”Siren Charms had a very dark vibe to it. We recorded it at a cold, damp and dark time during the year in Berlin so it gave it a certain melancholy to the record. Now recording in L.A. with the sunshine, it’s a different energy. The writing process was different this time, too — that I would like for us to continue to explore. Also, working with Howard and his team was great. I got stressed taking a break for even five minutes because they were always ready to go for the next take and kept my energy up.”
