The album is very much a tribute to all of Bjørn’s musical influences. From the dark and dirty riffs of Toni Iommi and Zakk Wylde, to the emotional playing of David Gilmour and Steven Rothery. The melodic and sombre voice of Steven Wilson and Tim Bowness and the cinematic landscapes of composers like Thomas Newman and John Barry.

Album Forever Comes to an End. Forever Comes to an End Lyrics. Feel, feel my deceive Cause I'll leave you here I'll leave you all alone. Do you feel, do you feel the hate What you've done to me And force me to do. But I'm scared to let you go out of my life And I want you here, I need you by my side. I'm on my way, way out of here I'm not coming back I'll leave you on your own.
This is the 2nd solo album from Norwegian progrock Airbag's guitarist Bjorn Riis. Forever Comes To An End is much heavier than 2014s Lullabies In A Car Crash. Forever Comes To An End is a great album. Start to finish solid tracks, well written, great playing, not so much Floyd influenced and a little darker. It's amazing how much great music comes out of Norway these days. Which led me to Lullabies. This is a very solid album with very strong influences coming from Pink Floyd and especially David Gilmour's dreamy guitar solos. What I really like, is he has done this new Floyd kind of sound with his own uniqueness as well.
Bjørn Riis’ second solo album surprised me. Twice. Only being familiar with his work as the guitarist for Airbag, I was expecting scenic guitars punctuated with melodic, emotional solos. Forever Comes to an End instead opens with an attack of guitars and drums – still emotional, but heavy and distorted. It grabbed me hard, right away. My first expectation gave way to my second – that this would be an album where Riis gets to throw off the familiar trappings of his playing, and explore heavier riffs. That’s where I was surprised again. Light on lyrics, heavy on atmosphere; Forever Comes to an End delivers an emotional story through music. Don’t expect a display of technical wizardry or guitar acrobatics or catchy tunes: Instead find a cohesive, gorgeously crafted story; with few words, little excess, and so much depth.
Common DNA is hardly a surprise as, in both cases, Riis sings, plays guitar and takes care of all the songwriting and the producing. He’s even recruited two of his fellow Airbag comrades to assist him, blurring the difference between the two entities even more
