End Reign on Thrash Hits

Label Profile 003: Witch Hunter Records

February 22nd, 2013

In our ongoing mission to shout about some of our favourite-but-unappreciated labels in the UK, it was inevitable that our wandering eye would end up focussing on Nottingham. While also the birthplace of Earache Records, it’s certainly not the only label dealing in heavy music that has its roots in the city – one other being Witch Hunter Records. Several of our past Future Hits subjects – including Limb, End Reign, and Prelude To The Hunt – have had releases on the label, which specialises in the kind of nasty underground sludge, doom and hardcore that we like best, so it was inevitable we’d end up getting in contact with the label founder, Chris Kaye, to get the inside scoop on his gloriously nasty little label.

Future Hits 106: End Reign

End Reign
From: The North, UK
Lazy equation: (Cursed x Haust) + a tiny little bit of Lavotchkin (quite literally)

Thrash Hits Verdict:
End Reign are one of those bands that have been buzzing around on the edge of our awareness for some time now. Not only can they boast of a member of Lavotchkin in their number, but they’ve also just finished a tour with Bastions – two bands that we’ve previously sponsored tours by. They’re definitely overdue a Future Hits grilling.
