2015 is already spewing up a massive amount of new releases! I'm starting with Greek old-school death metallers Wreckage and the reissue of their 2013 EP Rise From Ruins, courtesy of cracking extreme metal label PRC Music. This reissue features three extra tracks from their 2011 demo and their four-way split with Head Cleaner, Grassroll and EnPsychro, alongside the original six from the EP.
Wreckage are another name to come out the of the country that's already given us Dephosphorus, Kvazar and more. They're Entombed fans and played alongside the band's newest incarnation, Entombed A.D in December 2014.
1. Enslave The Tyrants
2. Screaming Weeping Bleeding
3. Deadliest Tool
4. Escaping The Tomb
5. Evemaster (Entombed Cover)
8. Twisted Mass Of Burnt Decay (Autopsy Cover)
Wreckage make a pounding racket. Opening song Enslave The Tyrants is a heaving mass of blasting drums, heaving guitars and rasping screams. There’s subtle melody and guitar harmonies hidden in the song, but for the most part it’s just a full-on show of power from Wreckage. That pretty much sums up the Greek sound for me. No matter what sub-genre a band chooses, they always go for all out obliteration. Screaming Weeping Bleeding is no different. It’s wall of noise is only just punctuated by top-end metallic guitar, but when it is there’s an edge to the music. I guess that’s the death n roll influence creeping in there!
