End of Mirrors is a dark and melancholy collection of post-punk from this Oakland band. Alaric have been making an introspective and aggressive punk for eight years now, but this CD and vinyl LP on Neurot is denser, more claustrophobic and more experimental than anything they’ve released before.

8/10 Tom Customer review, 24th May 2018

Oakland gloom-mongers Alaric return with End of Mirrors, their second album and first for the iconic Neurot Recordings. Using British post-punk and goth bands as a springboard, Alaric also have a notable metallic edge which is fitting given the metal pedigree of guitarist Russ Kent (he of Noothgrush infamy). Combining the gloomy atmosphere of the Cure and the angular power of Killing Joke, Alaric cast a perpetually long shadow across these seven tracks, but their sound has been refined and the songwriting has sharpened in the five years since their debut album, meaning that End of Mirrors is leaner and much better for it. On ‘Wreckage’ Rick Jacobus’ chorus-drenched bassline locks in with Jason Willer’s tribal drumming, forming the perfect canvas for Kent to thrash wiry melodies around like a demented Jackson Pollock while Shane Baker hoarsely preaches his end-time proclamations. By the time we reach the grandiose ‘Shrinking World’ it’s clear that Alaric are in perfect command of the shadowy world they navigate.
