“When it comes to grindcore, few bands these days can top the overwhelming barrage of wrath and aggression unloaded on the listener/spectator by Calgary’s WAKE. In a career spanning a mere seven years, this Canadian unit of aural assassins have brought terror and war to crowds all over the northern hemisphere, destroying venues across Europe and North America on multiple occasions, and establishing them selves as an infamous and unstoppable killing machine when it comes to performing live. In this sense the band’s name seems to perfectly match their nature within the live environment: leave nothing standing – level everything in an endless wake of terror and destruction. But WAKE are far from being only and aural cataclysm restricted to the live environment, quite the opposite, as the band has released a string of albums and splits that speak for them selves, and are just another horrifying statement of the violence and sheer aggression which nests inside the soul of this band.”
w/ local upstarts:
“…really fucking good if abrasion, self-loathing, discord and flirtations with the edge of out of control gets you hard/wet.” – Kevin Stewart-Panko, Decibel Magazine
“More than a band, it’s a primal scream, a rejection of comfort, and a point of convergence for all extremes and abysses” – Metal Oddities
Exhausted misanthropes, world weary fuck-ups, and End-Times enthusiasts gather ’round, we’ve got your house-band right here.
A bleak and despondent blast of post-punk menace with a healthy appetite for chaos and dark greys. Equal parts compelling exhaustion and self-assured right-cross.
Extreme music Voltron featuring former/current members of Narcissistic, Silent Era/Dirty wounds, and Black Tremor. An early blow to your sanity that you would be a sorry fool to miss.
