Thriller by New End Original

Naming an album Thriller is a daring move, but I think the album lives up to its name. Too bad they didn't blow up with this album. The world sucks.

Here is the Jade Tree bio:

Perhaps it was too good to be true. Forming out of the ashes of some of the underground's most beloved bands, New End Original was conceived by Onelinedrawing's Jonah Matranga in late-1999 as a plugged in rock band not unlike his former band Far-an idea that would only come to be a year later when ex-Chamberlain drummer Charlie Walker and Texas Is The Reason alums Scott Winegard and Norman Arenas signed on. Setting out as a supergroup with an immediatte following, the release of their 2001 debut Thriller proved New End to be a great band period, crafting an album full of skyscraper-tall riffs and infectious melodies that would stick in their fans' heads for years to come. Too bad they didn't have that long: together for just two turbulent years, New End Original split up in 2003 to allow its members to explore everything from progressive house to serene experimental pop to All-American arena rock.
