The debut album by alternative CCM act Red, END OF SILENCE blends impassioned but not preachy lyrics with heavy alt-rock in a vein that's similar to nu-metal acts like Linkin Park and Evanescence. Singer Mike Barnes's better than average voice and thoughtful lyrics are the band's strongest points, but the group provides a massive rock wallop on tracks like "Breathe into Me" and Let Go."
