Editorial Reviews

Taking the innovation of a contempo-noise alternative genre and joining it with the fundamental excellence of bands like Converge, Deadguy and Zao, Wrench In The Works has honed a style of progressive music that is genuinely unique and savagely majestic. A sound which is brutally aggressive joins with well-written metal-influenced-hardcore to show its unabashed rebellion against the genre s restricting conventions. As experimental metal begins to flow with the mainstream, Wrench In The Works desists from the gimmicks that plague the stage during so many metal-hardcore hybrid shows, allowing the unconventionality of their writing to shine through.

Wrench In The Works accomplishments have exceeded the status quo of the average underground band. The band released their Facedown debut Lost Art of Heaping Coal in 2008. Now, with seemingly limitless ingenuity and passion, members Andy Nelson, Greg Thomas and Darrell Tauro will continue shattering eardrums as well as genre barriers as they release their sophomore Facedown release Decrease/Increase due out March 16, 2010.

4.0 out of 5 stars brutal metalcore February 4, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Wrench In The Works seem to have found their feet. I had their debut album (Lost Art Of Heaping Coal) for review and wasn't overly impressed as they had a similar sound to many of their Facedown label-mates. However, both the technical ability and production are better on this outing. It all combines to give a brutal intensity that spits in your face, before trampling you underfoot.

Typically the songs feature 100 mph drumming with frenzied double bass, metalcore riffs and raspy vocals. The lyrical content is equally tough. For example, `Project AK-47' is about a ministry to save former child soldiers in Southeast Asia who were often forcibly recruited; "The face of war has never looked so young/armies of enslaved daughters and sons/denied existence so the world may never know/tiny foot solders of the dope machine/underground evil regimes/ mistreating children/creating killers".

The latter half of `A Desert Voice' features melodic tones and a spoken word section by Levi the Poet. There is not much to distinguish the following songs until you get to `Vows (I Must Decrease)' which is woefully short at just over 1 minute long. This feels like a wasted opportunity as it has an original structure that should have been made into a full blown song. `Walk Amongst The Tombstones' is about the loss of a friend through heroin addiction.

They are still classed as "contempo-noise" and "savagely majestic", whilst being compared to Converge, Deadguy and Zao. The main problem that I have is that they are being marketed as being progressive in the metalcore scene. Progressive normally means songs that clock in over the seven minute mark. The whole album ends in less than thirty minutes and I'm left wanting more!

No long review here. For metal/hardcore fans. One of the decent albums to come from Facedown records.
Great album. Better than their first one. Like Impending Doom, A Plea for Purging, Demon Hunter? I recommend Wrench In The Works.
