This is a review of another recording from Wake which shows them continuing their mixture of crust, grind and hardcore with the album being released in 2013 by 7 Degrees Records and called "False".
Dark sounding sound effects start off the album along with some distorted and melodic guitars which also leads up to more of a brutal grindcore direction along with some blast beats and high pitched screams and the band also uses a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts throughout the recording.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and all of the tracks are very short in length with the longest one being only 2 and a half minutes and as the album progresses growls can be heard in certain sections of the recording bringing in a death metal influence to the bands musical style and some of the alter tracks also show the band adding in elements of drone and noise while the main focus remains more on a brutal style of grindcore.
Wake remains true to a brutal style of grindcore throughout the recording while also mixing it in with crust and post hardcore to make their musical sound have more of a darker edge, the production sounds very dark, powerful and heavy while the lyrics cover dark and real life themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Wake and if you are a fan of grind, crust and hardcore, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Foster" "Mouth Breeder" "Ominous" and "Intrusion". 8 out of 10.
