This is a review of another recording from Wake which shows the band continuing their mixture of crust, grind and hardcore with the album being released by 7 Degrees Records in 2012 and called "Leaches".
A very dark and heavy hardcore sound starts off the album along with some death metal growls and aggressive screams which also leads to the music speeding up and adding in blast beats as well as adding in elements of brutal grindcore and the b and also brings in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Spoken word parts can be heard in certain sections of the recording and all of the songs are very short in length with the longest one being close to 3 minutes as well as some tracks bringing in spoken word samples and they also avoid using any solos and leads except for the last 2 songs and instead focus more on a very fast and brutal sound while some of the later tracks shows the band adding in small amount of melody.
Wake sounded more brutal on this recording with their crust/grind sound while the music still had a good amount of hardcore elements in t heir songs, the production sound s very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover dark and violent themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Wake and if you are a fan of crust, grind and hardcore, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Cult of War" "The Lies That Blind" "Vigil" and "Recycle The Sickness". 8 out of 10.
