Endura (sometimes written Endvra) was a dark ambient band that was active during the 1990s. The band had only two members, Stephen Pennick and Christopher Walton. The name of the band comes from the Cathars' practice of ritualistic fasting to speed death.
Pennick and Walton met in early 1993.
Endura mixes elements of ambient music with tribal rhythms, chants, moans, and sounds effects such as rattling chains and echoes. Their style has been described as "combining synthesizers reminiscent of Tangerine Dream with (un)healthy doses of Aleister Crowley, H.P. Lovecraft, and psychedelic drugs", "absolutely haunting and dark", or simply "Neoclassical". Walton has stated that Pennick has more melodic talent while Walton himself is more conceptual.
