Grind from Canada that’s caustic, unrelenting and inventive, this latter point being no mean feat for a genre that can often be stuck in a rut. Over the course of eight savage tracks Wake mercilessly shift and surge, never failing to deliver in the brutality stakes and blasting away like a good ‘un while also lacing their foul concoction with sheets of dissonance, convoluted rifficity and a sense of texture that you might ordinarily expect from post-rock or the further fringes of black metal. Each part interlocks perfectly with the next, the songs flowing with an easy grace despite the many tangles and jagged edges on display and the whole thing ultimately serving as an excellent, awkward piece of grindcore wizardry that’s sure to satisfy fans of Triac, Watchmaker and Dendritic Arbor.
