Editors’ Notes

Endgame picks up where its successful predecessor, Appeal to Reason, left off: contrasting anger with melody. But as the title suggests, this 2011 offering takes the end days of mankind as its theme. “Architects” kicks off as a pummeling hardcore rhythm section pounds under winding guitars and Tim McIlrath rails against political apathy; he sometimes sounds like Ian MacKaye fronting Bad Religion. In the highly accessible “Help Is on the Way” he jabs at those who pine for a liberal-leaning superhero to stand up against the corporate machine before the even catchier “Make It Stop (September's Children)” muses on the everymen fighting for the right to live as the corporations destroy the world. “Broken Mirrors” features old-school punk with relevantly empowering lyrics set to sing-along melodies, while the anthemic “A Gentlemen’s Coup” works in winding guitars and staccato rhythms that make way for powerful, fist-pumping gang vocals.

Customer Reviews

Rise against are back

in truth i would rate this at 4 and a half stars. I am as big a fan as the next however i feel this album does lack the same level of originality whereas the others progressed greatly from one another, this one isnt as large of a transition, which personally i think is fantastic, but if youve heard their music and didnt like it, it wont win you over. This is an album to their fan base, so if youve ever liked their music before you are sure to like this one.

Amazing

Best album from Rise so far! Love architects & satellite

Amazing.

I got into Rise Against about a year ago, and haven't actually been listening to them that long. However, everything they have done I've listened to and loved straight away. This album just seems to be consistently brilliant through all the tracks, with really strong lyrics. This is a must buy album for all fans.
