This is a replacement CD.
Tenacious
What really impresses me is the way both/all of the voices sound together.

Tantric exploded onto the scene in 2001, releasing their first album with the hit songs Breakdown and Astounded. Unfortunately, due to label pressure among other things, the band broke up after their sophomore album.

Hugo, the lead vocalist, has reformed the band and added a violin player. Down And Out was the first single off the record and immediately reminded me of that classic Tantric sound and how great the band is. This album, The End Begins, is everything rock should be and more. It is clear that Tantric is very passionate about their music with a slew of powerful songs. Not to mention, the violin adds a really nice touch to the heavy sound. This album is a must!

Unlike most people, I liked more songs from Tantric's second CD than the first. This album's sound definitely returns to Tantric's roots and will please those who liked the first album more but it is definitely NOT the same Tantric. Since the original band left, it goes without saying that Tantric does not sound the same. Lead singer Hugo Ferreira is the sole remaining member and has rebuilt the band with new members. Hugo decided to NOT try to imitate Tantric's previous efforts. You will not hear another "Breakdown" or "Astounded" on this album. Songs like "Regret" and "Lucky One" sound more alternative than rock but tunes like their single "Down and Out" and "The End Begins" give us a taste of what we're used to while songs like "Lay" and "The One" (which was written before the breakup) take us in totally new territory. NONE of the songs on this album sound like After We Go. Also, without Whitener you will notice the vocals don't have the "Alice in Chains" sound either which was criticized by some but relished by others. The new members are more multi-talented and all the new instruments involved give them an expanded repertoire more along the lines of "Evanesence". The vocals on this album are not as processed as previous albums even though Toby Wright produced this too. The most striking difference of course is the loss of Whitener's guitar. Practically all Tantric songs began with one of his extended riffs and the other instruments "stacked" on top of it. The new lineup does practically none of this. Some people will find this a bit of culture shock--but if you'll remember the complaints about the second album were that it didn't break enough new ground. This album certainly does that----but it's still Tantric.
The songs are angry, introspective, and loud......

I've been waiting four years for some new Tantric. And what we got, a really new Tantric. New drummer, new bassist, new guitarist, and an addition of a violinist (which is really cool). The only person the same in the singer. The new Tantric, appropriately titled 'The End Begins' is just what we expect. They don't do the same old stuff other rock bands do. They are truly unique (especially now that they have a violinist). The first single, "Down and Out," gives me goosebumps with the line "We come from the bottom and knock it out," which is just a fantastic line. I love the song "Love Song" but can really listen to every song on this CD, start to finish. The songs themselves make a beautiful 5-star album.

So why the 4 stars? Simple. The physical CDs are edited. Two songs, "The One" and "Monopoly" each have the f-word in them just once, but they are muted out. I happen to got those legally, buy buying them from iTunes (the digital versions can be bought at Amazon as well) so that I'd have the real deal. A minor inconvenience to me, but I've waited so long just to hear new tunes by the band, I can live with the additional 1.98 I paid to download those two songs.

Tantric attracted me from the beginning because of their connection to their former Band [Days of the New]

Their first album was somewhat of a disappointment. Far better than most music at the time, but something just didnt seem right. At least for me. Perhaps i expected more because i am a huge Days of the New fan.

Hugo's voice didnt connect with their sound. But today, i decided to give them another try. And when i first started listening to the CD.. i noticed something. I never knew that 3 members left the band. But i something hit me.. this album was working for me, far more than i expected.

This is a different sound.. a more complete sound.. heavier.. but just a bit.. more of a groove and an Energy. Hugo's voice sounded better than ever. Gone were the background Vocals and the sappy lyrics.

The added touch of the Violin was much welcomed. The guitar work, may not be as technical as before since they lost their lead guitarist. But this time around, Tantric began to rock.

Lyrically this album is a bit darker, i can feel something in the lyrics that i was never before able to connect with.

Fans of the former Tantric may be put off a bit. But music fans like myself, may have just found something much better, and thats a good thing.

To each their own i guess. Enjoy the album!

Many reviews will indicate the new band members and the changed sound.
I like both Tantric bands and find that the new sound maintains enough of the original sound, but takes the music to different directions. Personaly I appreciate a band that does not put out the exact same album
every time, so the new members are cool with me. I admit at first I was wait a minute this is not the Tantric I am used to, but after several listens I like the whole thing. I would say give it a chance and don't get caught up with the fact the band is all new but the singer.
