Directly afterwards comes the last part of the trifecta, appropriately named “The End”. You might recognize this as a cover of The Doors, especially because Lord somehow managed to dig up Jim Morrison’s 27-year-old corpse and make him sing like he did in his prime. Seriously, Guy Lord sounds almost criminally similar to Jim Morrison on “The End”, particularly in the opening verse. Morrison’s power, his subtle idiosyncrasies and tone—they’re all captured by the chameleons living inside Guy Lord’s throat. It’s massively cool, because Jim Morrison sounds fantastic in a metal band. Lord had the good sense to inject a thrashy riff and some squealing leads to a very understated song, but also had the tact to stay true to the spirit of the original song. The result is an updated version of “The End” that preserves the pensive schizophrenia of the song while also intensifying its chaotic violence.
