Wake/Sowing The Seeds Of A Worthless Tomorrow/Sentinent Ruin Laboratories/2016 CD Review


  Wake  are  a  band  from  Calgary,  Canada  that  started  out  as  more  of  a  crust/grind  band  in t he  beginning  but  have  incorporated  elements  of  avant  garde,  black  metal,  sludge,  and  post  hardcore  into  their style  this  time  around  and this  is  a  review  of  their  2016  album  "Sowing  The  Seeds  Of  A  Worthless  Tomorrow"  which  was  released  by  Sentinent  Ruin  Laboratories.

  A  very  dark  and  avant  garde  sound  starts  off  the  album  before  going  into  a  very  fast  and  brutal  grindcore  direction  that  also  utilizes  a  great  amount  of  blast  beats along  with  some high  pitched  screams  that  have  almost  a  black  metal  tone  to them  while  the  slower  sections  of  the  music  are  very  heavily  influenced  by  sludge  and  doom  metal.

  Throughout  the  recording  there  is  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  while  some  of  the  melodies  bring  in  elements  of  post  hardcore  and  the  faster  sections  remain  true  to  the  bands  d  beat,  crust  and  grindcore  roots  and  as  the  album  progresses  elements  of  noise  can  be  heard  in  certain  sections of  some  of  the  tracks  and  all  of  the  musical  instruments  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  while  some  songs  bring  in  death  metal  style  growls  and  the  whole  album  also remains  true  to  a  very  brutal  and  aggressive  musical  direction  and  spoken  word  samples  are   added  onto  the  last  track. 

  Wake  creates  an  album  that  is  very  much  rooted  in  the  brutal  crust/grind  direction  of  previous  recordings  but  also  changes  things  around  by  incorporating  more  elements  of  noise,  black  metal,  sludge  and  post  hardcore  which  also  helps  the  music  evolve  a  lot  more,  the  production  sounds  very  dark  and  heavy  while  the  lyrics  cover dark,  angry  and  hateful  themes. 

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Wake  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  crust  and  grindcore  with  elements  of  black  metal  and  sludge,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Wretched"  "Low"  and  "Endless  Decay".  8  out  of  10.

Necrosadik Interview

1.Can you give us an update on what is going on with the musical project these days?

Necrosadik has been in a lethargy state since two years ago, due to the little -almost null- time at my day to day activities as a lawyer; however the composition and recording for the 11th album "Scars Are Sexy", as long as one EP "Delirium Tremens" and several splits.

Necrosadik itself closed a cycle with the last full-length "We Are All Wounds", with this 10th album, Necrosadik explored his own history, experiences, mistakes and improvements; with this last album a self-destructive and existentialist cycle was closed, and for this reason Necrosadik chose to collaborate with 9 different talents, 9 different voices.

Necrosadik's new path would support the perversion of the human being, the self-mutilation as a essential part of hedonism; Necrosadik has a new flesh.

2.How would you describe the musical sound of the current music and also how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?

As everything, Necrosadik has been in a constant evolution, always reshaping to suit my will; if we go back to 2008 at the first and second album "Destroying Your Life!!!" & "The Portrait Of My Sorrow", the sound behind Necrosadik's mind was chaos, simple as that, pure and total chaos; if yes, Necrosadik has tried to melt chaos with other human emotions as hatred, suffering, desolation and the almost psychotic need of self-destruction, the sound itself was very raw, very dissonant; this was the line till the 5th album "Speak In Silence", so for that I could name it as Dissonant Experimental Black Metal.

For the 6th album "Assisted Suicide" a inner change took shape and sharp, something change, something died.

Since the 7th album "Casket Of Pain" till nowadays, Necrosadik has been working in a more complex and introspective atmosphere, trying to create new dimensions and new emotions through tunes and gasping voices, I think that Necrosadik's sound shall be described as you mentioned it at the review: Ritualistic Experimental Black Metal.

3.Over the years you have released a great amount of material, do you put a great amount of time and effort into writing and creating music?

The recordings arose as part of specific moments of inspiration, sometimes I had more lucidity, and for that reason some years I have released more than one album, however I am sure that in these seven years of existence, and after 10 albums, 15 splits, 13 compilations, 3 EPs and 3 Box Sets I have develop pure devotion, and sooner new offerings would be unleashed.

4.Wat are some of the lyrical topics and subjects you explore with your newer music?

Since the 6th album, Necrosadik left behind the self-destructive path and was instructed to teach how to spread this feeling toward the rest of the humanity; then since the 8th album the lyrical topic has been the devotion to the Death itself, pure and total devotion.

5.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Necrosadik'?

To understand the root behind Necrosadik's name, it is important to point out the reason of the creation of Necrosadik; at 2007 and 2008 I have experienced the most difficult moments in my life, and many emotions and anxiety episodes began to arise into my day to day activities, and after many years following the Black Metal scene, I realized that giving birth to Necrosadik would be the most healthy way to funnel all those feelings. The name came throughout my mind when I saw how life's will could be so sadist and lacking of mercy, giving pain and suffering to the people, giving them a "sadistic death".

6.With this project you record everything by yourself, are you open to working with other musicains or do you prefer to work solo?

Since 2008 I have recorded everything only by myself, except for some tracks at the 3rd album "The Pain Between Birth & Death", in which I collaborate with three session musicians; also a session musician was used for some tracks in a few splits; then at the last album "We Are All Wounds" I asked for the collaboration of 9 vocalists, from around the globe: Scum Noise from Scum Noise (Belgium), Kai Grimmsberg from Kai Grimmsberg (Belarus), Vald from Inner Disease (Mexico), Meister Müller from Dead Trooper/Trollfest (Norway), Bukkakeiser from Azaghal (Finland), Vitios from Vil (Mexico), Balpehor H.C. from Balpehor/Morbid Funeral (Costa Rica), SS66 from Härääys (Finland) and Einarr from Fortress of Negativity (United Kindgom).

Regarding that I prefer to work by myself, because I am an egocentric asshole (as the common opinion out there) or because I feel more comfortable working within my schedule, my structure and my will.

7.Over the years you have worked with a variety of many different record labels, can you tell us a little bit more about the lesser known record labels you have worked with?

Normally the labels have contacted me, and the relationship has been very fruitful, without any problem; working with lesser known labels is always an exciting experience, I mean, as an artist you have the risk of being rip off from the label, however I have never experienced that fortunately.

Working with lessen known labels is a win-win business, as an artist you are always looking for some labels to release your stuff, with quality and without noticing if the run-out is lower or just a few copies will be made; the important fact is to gain new territories, and then the label would be get exposure too.

8.On a worldwide elvel how has the feedback been to your music by fans of black metal, noise and experimental?

The feedback has been very pleasant for me, since the first months of Necrosadik back at 2008, many critics reached me at the almost extinct "myspace", in which many people express their admiration for my creation, calling it as chaotic, sick-fuck, etc.

Also, and it is understandable I have received negative critics, regarding that Necrosadik's music is pure sound without any logic, and I respect this kind opinion.

I have been banned at some towns in Germany, been forbidden in some places of South America and the Middle East; a French label has refused to released one of my EP "Endlösung" (Final Solution) with the original cover, due to the fact that I used a picture of a National-Socialist Concentration Camp, "Auschwitz".

The feedback has been good, in a black metal standard point of view of course; but at the end the most important thing is to play and compose whatever you want and feel, without focus in if this new recording will be good for anyone else.

9.Where do you see yourself heading into as a musicain in the future?

Necrosadik will be alive as long as I feel comfortable with his existence, this shall be perfectly melted with my professional career and my personal environment.

10.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your newer music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

Since Necrosadik creation, my main inspiration has been Abruptum; nowadays many other inspiration has been coming through, Stalaggh, Gulaggh, Ulver, Deathspell Omega, etc.

What I have been listening nowadays?, well I listen Black Metal mostly all day, these last days I have been listening Darkthrone's first albums, and well I also enjoy other kind of music, as Frank Sinatra, Chris Cornell, for example.

11.Does Satanism or Occultism play any role in your music?

Not at all; just at the first album I had a minimum contact with it, and at the last albums I have been more a strictly death worshipper.

12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

I just want to express my gratitude for your time and interest in Necrosadik; Necrosadik shall awake from this lethargic trance, and will be arise with a new flesh.

  Picture  Ann  creates  an  album  that  is  very  diverse,  atmospheric  and  experimental  sounding  while  also  mixing in  elements  of  black  and  progressive  metal  which  also  makes  the  whole  recording  sound  very  original,  the  production  sounds  for  dark  while  the  song  themes  focus  around  the  German  expedition  to  Tibet  in  1938,  the  writings  of  Edgar  Allan  Poe,  and  the  Royal  Conspiracy  Theories  dealing  with  Jack  The  Ripper.

  Breathing  noises  start  off  the  album  along  with  some  militant  drum  beats  and  operatic  female  vocals  a  few  seconds  later  and  the  music also  starts  getting  more  experimental  and  avant  garde  as  well  as  adding  in  ambient  style  synths  while  on other  tracks  they  also  bring  in  the  atmosphere  of  a  70's  horror  movie.

Bosque Interview

1.Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the musical project since the recording of the new album?
The recordings were finished just a few weeks back, so I have been mostly dealing with the final adjustments of this release (artwork adjustments, etc).

2.You have a new album coming out in 2016, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording and also how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?
This time, the songs were recorded in a different way (which originated a different overall sound), no keyboards were added and all melodies are guitar based this time. Besides that, the essence of the music is the same as it always was.

3.This is the first album to be released since 2013, can you tell us a little bit more about what has been going on during that time frame?
During this time Bosque did a few live concerts with session members. All songs featured in Beyond were played live before recorded and the live experience somehow shaped the new songs, adding different dynamics, only possible when you rehearse as a live band.

4.I have noticed you use a regular style of singing instead of growling and screaming like most bands in the genre, what was the decision behind going into this direction?
Bosque, as a form of expression , naturally developed into this sound, vocally and instrumentally. It is simply the way it makes sense to me. 

5.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects you explore with your music?
My own death, transcendence, the beyond.

6.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name ‘Bosque’?
Bosque means woods/forest in Portuguese. It is a place of isolation and contemplation as this project is to me. 

7.On the albums you record everything by yourself, are you open to bringing other musicians on the recordings, or do you prefer to work solo?
Beyond had session drums played by DA, who also played live with Bosque in 2013/2014. Anything can happen, there are no rules. 

8.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?
A live show of Bosque is a sort of ritual for me. The perceptions of others are not important to me.  

9.Do you have any touring or show plans once the new album is released?
The stage is not the natural habitat of Bosque, as it is for many bands. We might play again but nothing is certain yet.

10.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of funeral doom metal?
I don’t search for it. Personally music is a deep personal experience and doesn’t have to be shared.

11.Where do you see yourself heading into as a musician in the future?
Going deeper into my own inner self. Any music without emotion is pointless.

12.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had na influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
Since the early beginning in 2005, the main references for Bosque are Skepticism, Morgion and early Mourning Beloveth… even if Bosque doesn’t sound like these bands, they helped to shape the idea of a doom project in my mind.
