Review Summary: Chaos, frantic screams, and everything else you know about The Number Twelve.

The Number Twelve's highly unnoticed "Here At The End Of All Things" exhibits the ferocity of one of the most (seemingly) disorganized, unpredictable, and fun bands in metalcore (mathcore? grindcore?). Within the recordings, we find the six-piece doing what they do best (no, not wanking), putting on one hell of a live performance.

Not much can be said about the music inside that hasn't been said by other reviewers. What is really noticeable though is the accuracy of the playing that is well-known as technical skull***ery. It really would have been better had the recording been cleaner though, as the sound can be pretty fuzzy at times. What is heard very well though is the relentless dual vocals of Jesse Korman and Justin Pedrick who both make the album worth listening to. Utilizing their spoken/crooning/whatever vocal approach, the two offer a performance that will be very pleasing to any Number Twelve fanboy.

Featuring not only songs taken from a live performance recorded in their home state of New Jersey, there are also a couple remixes included. The remix of "Imagine Nation Express" isn't necessarily much of a remix, but a remastering and lengthening of the song with the use of added effects. "The Weekly Wars (Endor Remix)" can go both ways with the listener. Changing the order of the formula of the song is the main thing here, and honestly it's passable. The live recorded tracks easily overshadow the remixes since the remixes hold very little relevance.

Here At The End of All Things is what every Number Twelve fanboy needs to acquire, but is not something that a casual listener should bother downloading. The live tracks can give the listener a taste of what a Number Twelve show was like before their breakup and the remixes are possibly the least important things they have ever released.

this entire review summed up is "it's cool if you love 12 to death and enjoy live albums, otherwise it's passable" so keep that in mind.

Then why is this a three?

But I hate myself. Around before they broke up, I had a chance to see The Number Twelve/FACT/iwrestledabearonce/Greeley Estates (Go West-era), all pretty good bands (The first couple better than the rest) but I fucking had to work

I love the DVD of this, Civeta Dei on it is amazing.

Only problem is Jase really fucked up on some of the growls namely the beginning of Jesus and Tori.

The cover of Texas Dolly was highly unexpected, but enjoyable.

how anyone could grow tired of this band i dont know. with 4 full lengths of vastly different material and a cool handful
of ep's.

i rated this as a 3 cause the quality is pretty terrible, but its the number 12 so its awesome.

I fucking love everything this band has done, yeah.

but I can't find a way to pirate the DVD for this :C And no, I'm not buying it.

Cool fact: I actually saw Jase Korman (the skinnier vocalist) at a Foxy Shazam show. I think he owns the record label they're on now.
