Biography

Doomsday scenarios are often predictive about an ending in life, revealing just what would occur if the world pushed itself to the brink of extinction. And the term “endgame” typically parallels such thinking, often evoking concepts of finality or termination.

But for Rise Against, this particular endgame might just be their beginning.

Editorial Reviews

Limited edition pressing. 2011 album from the Chicago-based Punk act. The lyrics of the album touch on real world events, such as Hurricane Katrina and the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. According to Mcllrath, although the lyrics discuss grim topics, they actually take on a positive view and were written from the perspective of: 'What if the place on the other side of this transition is a place we'd all rather be living in?' Mcllrath tweeted a clarifying message stating that the record is not a concept record and, fret not, has absolutely nothing to do with the Dixie Chicks. The first single from the album is 'Help Is On The Way',

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best July 15, 2011
By S. Kile
Format:Audio CD
I love all of Rise Against's albums. The Sufferer and the Witness is the only album that is better than Endgame. Endgame has some of their best songs. Tom's raspy vocals are better than ever, the guitar riffs are mind blowing and the drums are pounding just the way a Rise Against album should be. I will go track by track to explain the awesomeness of the album...

1. Architects: 8/10
A very strong start to the album. As usual in Rise Against songs great lyrics and great vocal power. Some have diminsihed because of its apparent mimic of an Against Me song but I really could careless, it's a great song that deserves recognition.

2. Help is on the Way: 8/10
A great chose as a lead off single, it's powerful and its a great protest song against the way FEMA handled Hurricane Katrina. THe music video is very good and really exasperates the song. It's a perfect punk rock anthem. It's not a boring song in anyway and even has a tempo switch. Very Rise Against like...

3. Make it Stop (Children's September): 9/10
All I can say is that it's a very important song about bullies that bully gays and lesbians and how these bully victims have commited suicide. The song is powerful and is amongst my favorite on the album. It's a little bit slower than most songs on the album, probably the slowest but its damn good. The music video is powerful. When Tom mentions the names and ages of teenagers that commited suicide from being bullied, it really touched my heart. Amazing song...

4. Disparity By Design: 8/10
Sounds like something of Sufferer and the Witness, it's just a classic Rise Against song with great lyrics. The chorus is amonst the catchiest on the album, another damn good song.

5. Satellite: 9/10
Another classic Rise Against song.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad album, but their worst March 19, 2011
By Jen
Format:MP3 Music
When "The Unraveling" came out, I was blown away. One of the best hardcore/punk albums in my opinion. "Revolutions Per Minute" continued with greatness, with great lyrics, anger, and speed. "Siren Song..." and "The Sufferer..." were both great in their own rights, but "Appeal To Reason" is where a downward curve began. "AtR" had some kick-ass songs, but the bad songs were really bad. "Endgame"... very safe, too long, too slow.
Some pretty good songs featured here ("Architects", "Survivor Guilt", "Satellite"), but there doesn't seem to be any songs that are really great. On the other hand, no songs are really bad either. It's a very middle-of-the-road album.

I bought it, I don't regret it, but after a few songs I always just end up putting "The Unraveling" back on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Disclaimer: I Enjoy "Mainstream" Rise Against June 4, 2011
By TGJ
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I understand why some fans are turned off by Rise Against progressively making more commercial music. My buddy, who loves Rise Against and introduced me to them loves the first two Cd's, and thinks they then peaked at Siren Song. Me personally think the first two albums were good but rough around the edges. Siren Song was a big step, and The Sufferer and the Witness is there pinnacle so far. While Appeal to Reason and now Endgame don't match that peak, I think they are still better than most rock music out there.

Rise Against purists, and music fans by nature are going to love when the band was raw, before they "sold out". I disagree, I think if Rise Against was still making music like The Unraveling, I know I wouldn't have ever been into them. After a few days of listening to Endgame, I find it better than Appeal to Reason (which I thought was a solid album). Highlights for me include Survivor Guilt, Satellite, and the title track. After hearing the children's chior on "Make It Stop", I wish they would do just that. Besides that sappy touch though, it is a good song, although on of the weaker on the album.

I really had to search for something negative to say about the album. I guess I could say there are not as many catchy hooks as on previous albums. Still though, I find all the songs listenable, and while some may look at it as a negative that no songs stand out, I think the album flows nicely. Good cohesion throughout. I hope the Rise Against purists can understand the band maturing and try to embrace the direction they have taken.

Big credit to Amazon for offering this cd for under 5 dollars, down with Itunes.

4.0 out of 5 stars What A Surprise! March 15, 2011
Format:Audio CD
It's been a few years since their last album came out, and I've to say I couldn't wait for this album to come out. This album is a mix of things. This album is interesting from start to finish. I've been a fan of Rise Against for six years now. I've always wondered what they would come out with next. This album is alright, but it's not their best album to date. The musical style on this album isn't my favorite, but it's good. There is a lot of songs on this album I really like:
1. Midnight Hands ( This is my favorite song on this album )
2. Wait For Me
3. This is Letting Go
4. Endgame
5. Help is On The Way
6. Make It Stop ( September's Children )
7. Satellite
I don't connect with the rest of the album, like I connect with these songs, they are amazing. I personally think this is a really good album, but could have been better, just a little bit. I am happy with this album for the most part, and I recommend this album.

Love the Satellite track! Lots of energy without being too aggressive! They are like a cross between older Green Day and Nickleback

what is in the limited edition?
I believe the limited edition just means the Eco packaging it is in as that is what Rise Against's official store is selling right now. And as with Appeal to Reason they released an ecopack for that but after a while they switched to regular cd cases
