Cripple Ewe
The Common Ending
April 2008
Released: n/a, Independent
Rating: 2.5/5
Reviewer: Simon Lukic

Modern Metal is the name of the game here, with tortured vocals, breakdowns and melodic Death Metal riffs leading the way. Cripple Ewe (pronounced Cripple You) is a young band from the States and THE COMMON ENDING is their debut effort.

Even though I’m not the greatest fan of this style, I do appreciate the energy and aggression of the music and that can certainly be heard on opener “F.D.A.F.O.L.”, “Miseries Hour” and the title track. Vocalist Matt Coglianese whips up quite a storm and the remainder of the band offer enough energy to get the blood pumping.

Unfortunately the band and their style of Death Metal tinged Metalcore is already in full swing and that somewhat dates THE COMMON ENDING a little. Bands such as Heaven Shall Burn, All That Remains or Despised Icon have progressed beyond what I hear here which means that Cripple Ewe needs to progress further if they want to keep up with those leading the way.

Cripple Ewe have a lot of potential and should appeal to those you who enjoy or follow any “core” related sounds. THE COMMON ENDING is a solid effort, so check it out if it’s something that would appeal to you.
