Enigmatic psych doom outfit ENPHIN, formerly known as "Mr. Peter Hayden" or simply "PH" return with their 6th full-length album and Pelagic Records debut, titled "End Cut".

A movie script that became a record, "End Cut" represents a perilous yet enlightening journey for body and mind.

If you commit yourself to their guidance, ENPHIN will take you on a journey through post- apocalyptic wastelands into the deep caverns of the soul.

Throughout the years many have attempted to probe into the mystery as to whom Peter Hayden might be, but now the two letters have morphed into a new name which refers to the French enfin and which translates to the adverb `in the end'.

With End Cut the four-piece from Finland present a deeply philosophical space doom epic that acts as a final statement on this enduring mystery and which holds the sublime moment in which the true nature of Peter Hayden will be revealed.

Presenting the listener with a post-apocalyptic storyline, End Cut can be perceived as a first part of something new, even with a lineup reduced to its original size of four musicians.

End Cut continues the band's trajectory of writing increasingly shorter songs. Gone are the hour-long sonic journeys of former releases, eenter fifteen dynamic compositions that make up a troubling journey through dark landscapes and harrowing visions.

End Cut sees ENPHIN expand their sonic palette once more to an unprecedented variety, marking a shift in musical direction not unlike bands like Ulver or Boris pulled off in the past.

However, instead of wholeheartedly going in a different direction, ENPHIN use End Cut to expand their sound in a great multitude of directions, further exploring elements of industrial, synthwave, goth rock and techno.

The undiscerning listener will find the album to be a wild and compelling sonic trip_ but for those who are familiar with the band's previous records, End Cut will cut even deeper and reveal itself as a journey beyond the physical, beyond the meta, beyond death, towards an unknown gloomy place painted in the dark colours of the album's closing tracks Nothing, Sang Unity, and Endling.

With End Cut, ENPHIN are piercing the soul, creating an experience that supersedes their previous works and that might well be- come their opus magnum.
