This is a review of a split 7 inch between Canada's Wake and Portland, Oregon's Theories which was released in 2014 by 7 Degrees Records as well as having both bands covering His hero Is Gone and we will start off the review with Wake a band that plays a mixture of crust and grindcore.
Their side of the split starts out with some static before going into more of a heavy and melodic direction as well as adding in screaming vocals before getting more brutal and adding in blast beats and grindcore style growls and after awhile the band starts adding in more elements of power violence along with a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and they cover some very dark and hateful topics with their lyrics as well as bringing in a very dark soundign production.
Next up is Theories another band that mixes crust, power violence and grindcore together.
Their side of the split starts out with spoken word samples before going into more of a heavy and brutal grindcore direction along with some fast riffing, blast beats and high pitched screams and after awhile the band starts bringing in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with some elements of hardcore and power violence, the lyrics that the band cover are very dark and violent while the production has a very heavy and brutal sound to it and on the last track they add some melody into their musical sound.
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and i would recommend it to all fans of crust and grindcore. 8 out of 10.
