** WAKE only
Relentless transformation, aggression, and transcendence have written the script for WAKE. Since their formation in 2009, they’ve released numerous EPs and singles, plus five full-lengths – touring the world in support of it. Now, for their upcoming sixth album, WAKE has joined forces with Metal Blade Records, marking a new chapter for the quintet.
WAKE’s latest full-length, Devouring Ruin, was featured on several “best of 2020″ lists (including Decibel Magazine, Exclaim!, and BrooklynVegan, among others); soon after its release, the group dropped their Confluence EP, once again to critical acclaim. Most recently, WAKE released the track “Vast and Infinite” in October 2020, exclusively through Decibel Magazine as a part of their Flexi Series. Stream “Vast And Infinite” HERE.
Stand by for a new song from WAKE next week at THIS LOCATION. Set a reminder!
“[Devouring Ruin] is a masterclass on experimentation and untethered ideation filtered through a prism of extreme metal’s most radiant attributes.” – Metal Injection
“WAKE…are standard bearers for uncompromising, intelligent extreme metal. Their refusal to aim at the ever-moving target of extremity gives them the bandwidth to focus on becoming the best they can be.” – Everything Is Noise
“With Devouring Ruin, these guys are in another league. In a scene that is full of surprises, WAKE have put out a fitting benchmark to start this new decade of heavy music.” – Exclaim!
