The End were a Canadian mathcore/metalcore band formed in 1999[1] in Mississauga. They have been repeatedly compared to bands like Dillinger Escape Plan and deathgrind group Discordance Axis, as well as Neurosis. The band's debut full-length album Transfer Trachea Reverberations from Point: False Omniscient won a Canadian independent music award for metal album of the year in 2002. Their second album, Within Dividia was released on January 13, 2004 through Relapse Records. Their third album, Elementary, was released on Relapse Records on February 6, 2007. The album's sound is unlike previous albums, with partially sung vocals and a far more regular song structure. This change in sound has pushed many to compare the band to similarly accessible metal acts such as Tool, In Flames and even Opeth.

Their song "Throwing Stones" appeared on the soundtrack for the 2007 film The Hills Have Eyes 2.

In October 2007, The End announced that they would cancel their upcoming tour with Between The Buried And Me because guitarist Andrew Hercules had left the band. No reason has been given as to why he left.

After the breakup of the band, bassist Sean Dooley and vocalist Aaron Wolff have since gone on to form the band Solitary Sun.
