THE REPTILIAN proves themselves worthy of worship by letting us marvel at their impressive songwriting and overall sense of quality. “End Paths” is a mature showcase for one of the most skilled and creative independent bands out there. Amazing job.
US math rock/screamo act The Reptilian make their I.Corrupt.Records debut with End Paths. Progressing from their roots on Count Your Lucky Stars and musical ancestors such as Envy and Slint, The Reptilian situates among contemporary acts such as Tiny Moving Parts, Circle Takes The Square and Battles without appearing derivative of them. End Paths is, for its grace and rage, a swanlike anthem crafted emotionally and intelligently to never soften too much for punk crowds nor lose the indie crowd with simplicity. Eight passionately shouted calls from within rapid structures of dynamically spry post-hardcore melody and flowing, adrenal rhythm.
