Founded in 2004 by René Bogdanski (guit., Ninnghizhidda) and Lars Janosch (drums), The Very End are children of the Ruhr area, a region with a traditionally large working-class population, which has been a soil for metal music ever since.
Along with Björn Gooßes (voc., ex-Night In Gales), Marc Beste (bass, Onkel Tom) and Alex Bartkowski (guit.) the band has eagerly been perfecting their sound over the years. Like their neighbours Kreator or Sodom The Very End is forged from real steel and deem it their duty to not only keep the Ruhr area sound alive, but to bring it to the next level.
After the 2nd demo was named „Demo of the month“ in the German Metal Hammer magazine, the band signed their first record deal and released Vs. Life in 2008. Two years later they signed to Steamhammer/SPV. The following album Mercy & Misery has been produced by Waldemar Sorychta (Grip Inc. among others) and Dennis Koehne. 2011 also saw the release of The Very End’s first official video clip for the song A Hole In The Sun. The 3rd album Turn Off the World reached the 5th rank in the German Metal Hammer soundcheck in December 2012. The magazine later declared it to one of the most important metal releases in 2012.
In 2016 the band was featured at the in the exhibition “Rock and Pop in the Ruhr Area”. It was held in one of Germany’s most prestiguous museums, the Ruhr Museum, which is located in the World Heritage Zeche Zollverein.
