Jared Leto wrote a song called “End of all days” in February 2011, when he was seriously ill.

After the movie in 2007 “Chapter 27” Jared ill gout.

Tormented him constant pain at night. So he drinks tablets Naproxen, otherwise L490.

Shannon is so unique it hurt to look at it,that feeling of despair, from the torment,

himself wrote the song with the original name Equinox, which means equinox. At the beginning of the song sounds a droning sound

coming from a bowl, which is also called L490. In the end of the song is the voice of monks (prayer).

“How many years I share the pain younger brother, how much time I suffer with him.

Know we will win, renew as two of the Phoenix from the ashes, we will be happy and healthy. Just have patience”.

Shannon Leto not only wrote the song and played his usual drums, but also the guitar. Lead guitarist Tomo explained to Musicradar.com: “What most people won’t know is that Shannon wrote this song and played practically all the guitars on it. The only thing I did was I put a little electric guitar melody at the beginning - Shannon asked me to lay that part down. Shannon had the song kicking around and we really encouraged him to lock himself in his bedroom and do something incredible. After a couple of days, he emerged with this creation that was very beautiful. Even though I had very little to do with it, it’s my favorite song on the album to listen to. It’s a great ‘put on the headphones and lose yourself’-type track. And I have to say, the little electric guitar I put down is the best tone I got - that’s the Jazzmaster again.”
The song features a choir of Tibetan monks. Lead Singer/guitarist Jared Leto told Q magazine December 2009. “They’re the real deal. We recorded at my house in LA, one monk rescued a drowning bee from my pool.”

30 Day Echelon Challenge / Day 2 - Favourite Album

It has to be This Is War..

This was the 1st album I ever heard by Mars and it has been a huge part of my life as I have grown up. I personally think the songs on this album are the best 30 Seconds To Mars have ever produced and after watching Artifact I now know how much meaning is actually in them and I think it is more than an album to me. It is an idea of approaching adversity and literally fighting your way to survive. I love that. It also has my favourite song in the world on it: Search and Destroy.

“Sometimes we must fight in order to be free
