Back in 2013, I flew to Stockholm exclusively to attend THE END OF GRACE‘s live debut (see here). Four years later I was flying to Göteborg for another of their gigs – my 7th – but I was totally unaware that this would be the last.
With Glen Gilbert on the clean vocals and the release of “Infinite Shadows Of Memories” (review here), TEoG wrote a new chapter and decided to leave the previous ones in the past, revisiting only the page where “Beneath The Waves” had been written – after all, it’s still their biggest hit and everyone sang along. The new songs were equally welcomed, but people didn’t seem to know the lyrics yet.
I’ve been there since the beginning, through all the line-up changes and shaping stages of their sound, so even if I was sad when, a month later, they called it quits, I was also thankful for having played my part in their history. The grace may have literally ended, but I know something else will follow suit and I’m looking forward to see what that will be. “We ride with pride, we ride until we die”.
