The End of Silence

The End of Silence is the fifth release and the third full-length album by Rollins Band, led by former Black Flag singer Henry Rollins. The album's cover features a stylized drawing of the sun identical to the one tattooed on Rollins' back. The album's liner notes credit the artwork to California tattoo artist Rick Spellman.

In Metal Hammer's list of the Top 10 Albums of 1992, they describe the album as "Taut, ferocious, withering" and that it is "the record that took Rollins from hardcore punk renaissance man to bona fide alt-rock icon."
