Cleveland's NDE are no strangers to the scene, having been around since the mid '90s, yet "End of Trust" is the band's national debut. 

NDE's blend of electronic metal (a la Prong) mixes well with their potent hardcore attack, evoking at times reminders of Kilgore and Earth Crisis - bands that skillfully blurred the edges between hardcore and metal. In fact, the 12 tracks that comprise "End of Trust" chug along like Machine Head meets Biohazard, complete with crunchy guitars and bombastic drums.

Spirited and heavy as hell, NDE shows that its brand of metal is ready for the major leagues, tapping into the angst that so many before them have displayed.
