In late 1996, first line-up of E.N.D. (Evil Never Dies) was gathered for their first rehearsal in Zadar/Croatia. One year later, serious work starts to be a part of their interests. Through the years, besides the large number of people that passed through, band's image and genre were changing gradually. Today, the style they grew is based on experimenting with many extreme metal and hardcore directions but in every way it's a combination of powerful drum beats, low tuned guitars, thrashy riffs with occasional breakdowns and polymetrical parts followed by mid-pitch screaming vocals.

Experience that the band collected over the years can be expressed by a large number of gigs all over Croatia and neighbour countries, couple of demo records, videos, participation on compilation CD's, EP, official full length album, countless interviews and presentations in magazines, newspapers, web portals, blogs, Radio and TV shows which gave them status of one of the most known, as one of the oldest active metal bands in the county and wider.

In a list of shows which include festivals, such as BRUTAL ASSAULT, METALCAMP, METALFEST, MARTINSKA FEST, MONTEPARADISO, UFO, METAL MANIA OPEN AIR, UNDERWALL… and other kinds of venues, E.N.D. shared stage with: TESTAMENT, MALIGNANT TUMOR, XENTRIX, HATESPHERE, SKITSYSTEM, DECAPITATED, MUNICIPAL WASTE, THE OCEAN, GOD DETHRONED, PUNGENT STENCH, ONLY ATTITUDE COUNTS... and many other foreign and local great names.

In April 1999, band records their first studio demo "Shortest Distance From The Truth". Two years after, their potential was recognised and they were invited to participate in their first regional metal compilation "Stormbreed" with song "Free Yourself" for which they also shot their first video piece.

Year 2003 was the year of their second studio demo "Thru The Thorns" and the year of many changes.

In march 2005, the band recorded three new songs. This promo EP named "...to the bones!" contains also second video for the song "Pointless Revelation", live pictures and mp3's arranged as flash multimedia interface.

On October 3rd 2005, the band suffers a tragedy. They have lost a dear friend and bass player, Brane (R.I.P.). The world has lost one of the kindest, most respectable and honest human beings and a damn fine musician.

In October 2006, E.N.D. signs with DALLAS RECORDS for two of their songs from "...to the bones!" EP for "New Underground - Hard Hitters From Croatia" compilation CD that collected very good reviews.

Three years after the last record and one year of hard practicing in a new "three man band" situation, the band finally records their first official full length album called "Depravity". They entered the studio in summer 2008. and a small local publisher releases their album in March 2009. The album has received very good reviews and the new line up left the best impressions so far. For the first time E.N.D.'s album can be found on the shelves of local CD stores, worldwide online shop CDBaby and all major mp3 distributors like iTunes, Amazon, Napster, Rhapsody...

Shortly after the album “Depravity” was released, Segy parted ways with the band but never lost contact and still contributes.

In June 2013, the band signs with Geenger Records who releases their second full length album named "Illustrating Evil".
This album offers something different in terms of music style and production. Generally, they preserved their well-known style of playing but this time complexity of riffs and arrangements kicked in more than ever.
Even though they've done most of the recording process by themselves, with a help of Subscalar Studios who mixed the album, the final mastering was done by Jocke Skog, taking the listening experience to the next level.
