Decibel Magazine takes this day to spit forth a venomous new single from Calgary grindcore faction, WAKE, and their impending Sowing The Seeds Of A Worthless Tomorrow LP, unleashing the album’s “Wretched Tongue” through an exclusive premiere. Issues the mag of the record, “their newest full-length is on the horizon and it is what WAKE fans like myself crave. Sowing The Seeds Of A Worthless Tomorrow is eight tracks of the quintet showing off, well, everything I mentioned up above but with harsher production, tighter execution and somehow a few extra doses of absolute carnage.”
Jack yourself into The Deciblog and deploy WAKE’s “Wretched Tongue” to hear the demolition for yourself at THIS LOCATION.
WAKE’s Sowing The Seeds Of A Worthless Tomorrow was recorded and mixed by Joel Grind at Falcon Studios (Toxic Holocaust, Poison Idea, Lord Dying, Abyss, etc.), mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Nails, The Secret, Black Breath, Old Man Gloom etc.) and features mesmerizing art and layout by Hal Rotting of Rotting Graphics (Plague Widow, Napalm Raid, Atriarch, Barghest). A coalition of underground labels will release the album on a variety of formats, the cassette tape and digital by Sentient Ruin, the CD by Everyday Hate, and the LP by 7 Degrees Records and Nerve Altar.

While WAKE remains true to their underlying grindcore roots, showcasing clear affinity with stalwarts in the genre like Nasum, Brutal Truth, Discordance Axis and Napalm Death, attentive listeners will also notice the encompassing, dissonant and twisted craft of Deathspell Omega, the slow and pounding sludgecore of bands like Breach and Knut, and the grandiose post-hardcore architectures of bands like Cursed and The Secret. All in all, Sowing The Seeds Of A Worthless Tomorrow is a monstrous achievement in the realm of modern and forward-thinking extreme metal and hardcore elaborations, and is a must hear for any fan of bands like Ulcerate, Full of Hell, Nails, Buried Inside, Celeste, and beyond.
