Metamorphosiz - The End Remixes Vol. II [edit]
by Thousand Foot Krutch | Genre: Electronic/Dance | Release Date: July 02, 2013
 

Modern rock favorite THOUSAND FOOT KRUTCH will release its second remix EP, Metamorphosiz II The End Remixes Vol. 2, as an exlusive to digital retailers, including iTunes®, Amazon.com and others, on July 2. The EP features six songs from the independently released, five-star acclaimed and No. 1 selling Billboard Hard Rock album, The End Is Where We Begin, by noted remix talent Robbie Bronnimann, Andy Hunter, Solomon Olds, Rui Da Silva and Joshua Silverberg.

The new EP follows the success of Metamorphosiz: The End Remixes, Vol. 1, which released Dec. 4, 2012 and not only spent time at No. 1 on the iTunes Rock Albums chart in its first week out, but futher sparked ESPN2 to load up "War Of Change," "We Are" and "Let the Sparks Fly" remix tracks for placements on its show "First Take." New ESPN placements for "Vol. 2" are being considered now, including for NASCAR coverage.

Bronnimann (Nicki Minaj, Chicane), Hunter (The Matrix: Reloaded, The Italian Job, ABC's Alias) and Olds (Family Force 5, Newsboys), all featured on the first EP, return with brand new remixes. Bronnimann tackles SiriusXM's Octane Big 'Uns Countdown Top 10 single "Fly On The Wall" and hit radio single "Be Somebody. " Hunter and Olds 'trip out' "Down" and "The End Is Where We Begin," respectfully. New to the mix are Portuguese musical innovator Silva ("Touch Me") who takes on the militant "Courtesy Call," and producer/songwriter Silverberg (Edison Glass, Abandon) with an unsullied take on "So Far Gone."

The End is Where We Remix | Posted July 01, 2013
A few months back, Thousand Foot Krutch showed off how well some of their songs from The End Is Where We Begin translated to a remix with their Metamorphosiz EP, The End Remixes Vol. 1. In an age where remix albums seem to be growing ever more popular, TFK showed that their music could hang with the best of the techno and dubstep kings. 
 
It was pretty clear by the "Volume I" designation that a follow-up wouldn't be too far off, and that bring us to Metamorphosiz II - The End Remixes, Vol. 2, featuring more hits from their most recent studio album making the jump to remix.
 
"Fly On The Wall (The Robbie Bronnimann Mix)" opens up the EP and is an exciting transformation from the original. While the original was an emotional mid-level rock number, the remix version sounds great as an electro-dance number. The song's emotional depth remains and McNevan's vocals gain even more nuances set to this electro beat. 
 
The theme of speaking to our vices through the context of a dream and declaring that we're ready to move on remains solid and perhaps takes on new meaning in the new setting.
 
"The End Is Where We Begin (Solomon Olds Remix)" is Family Force 5 frontman Soul Glow Activatur's faster-paced take on the title track. It's a clever transition and helps to add a new layer of excitement to the song. 
 
"Courtesy Call (Rui Da Silva Remix)" is next and opens with the strings similar to the album version plus some of the album's memorable creepy voice introduction. The song was always perhaps a logical candidate to be remixed as it sounded much like a club song the first time around. And a lot of rock elements are still present, with electronic elements added in between and over these elements. 
 
Unsurprisingly, this one turns out really well and feels like one of the more natural remixes on the collection. "The mark you make is up to you" is also a great message to bookend the song. Of all the songs, this one feels the most like it could've passed as the original.
 
"Down (Andy Hunter Remix)" is an appealing take on the rap number and the electronic beats actually work out pretty well, perhaps better than the original. The song about standing up to critics who put you down offers a positive message and the new coating of paint makes it a positive club-ready tune.
 
"Be Somebody (The Robbie Bronnimann Mix)" offers a bit of a slower electro beat, appropriate for a slower song. The original album version was one of TFK's most emotional singles yet. The beat adds some welcome eeriness and tension to the chorus, and some delectable piano hooks add an intriguing kick to the track that I really like. The emotional power of the original is mostly present here. While this isn't likely to replace the original on TFK playlists, it's good enough to merit it's own space there.
 
"So Far Gone (Joshua Silverberg Remix)" has a more ambient take on the track than the stripped-down original. This approach offers a different angle on the intimacy of the song. Some of the electro elements, restrained though they are compared to the others, could use to be dialed back even more. The piano and synth backing was enough to add a different take to the song—although the electro beat does make for a fun bridge. Still, the track is a definite success as a remix and is a great way to close out the album.
 
As a rock fan, I'll still probably always prefer the originals for the large majority of these remixes, as I do with most remixes. But as one who isn't generally a fan of remix projects, this EP was a pleasant surprise and offered some fun and memorable takes on the originals. Whether they are an improvement or not will depend on individual tastes, but I'll at least be giving these some playback in the future. 
 
Closing Thoughts:
This is a great second half to TFK's remix EPs. There are new facets of depth revealed through these remixes. It's a satisfactory holdover until the next full-length TFK project. Whether you like remixes projects or not, it's definitely worth your time at least giving a few listens to.

TFK Does It Again | Posted July 06, 2013

The second half of Thousand Foot Krutch's remix project is spot on. I think it's better than volume 1, but that could be that these are my favorite songs off the orginal album. Anyway, fans will not be dissappointed. I usally don't like remixes that much, but these are great. A very enjoyable listen. A good holdover til the next full album. Thousand Foot Krutch rawks as always.

Amazing...as usual | Posted July 03, 2013
 What I love about Thousand Foot Krutch is that they take the time to put out an album that is fully finished and each song well developed.  They don't rush to genreate a large number of albums but rather quality.  Their remix albums are great.... they chose just the right artists to add to their sound.

Awesome album | Posted July 02, 2013
This album is another brilliant release by the band. I have always enjoyed their music and is was definitely not a disappointment. They are keeping it very contempary, matching the current music tastes that are sweeping the world. Would be a good addition to any music collection.

TFK does it again! | Posted July 01, 2013
 There isn't much to say aside from the fact that it's awesome!  Thousand Foot Krutch continues to deliver some of my all time favorite music!  I would recommend this to anyone, but I would alos recommend listening to The End is Where We Begin album first so you know where the songs come from.
