With a crushing heaviness that feels more like a personal act of God going off in your face when you press play than merely listening to a record, it’s an understatement to say that WRAITHS bring the mosh.
Hailing from the North East of the UK, WRAITHS have committed five tracks of downbeat, downtempo and downtuned pit-bait to tape, a 20 minute pummelling of truly mammoth proportion. Recorded, mixed and mastered by Richard Doney at Landscape Studios, Cleveland, this EP is a primal force of nature, mixing up the fast with the slow and the slower still, each palm mute hitting like a hammer, every self-loathing scream clawing at your soul. And when the mosh drops 20 seconds in to opening track ‘Pyramid Head‘, you’ll not resist the urge to regress, tear off your shirt and pound the ground.
Recorded, mixed and mastered by Richard Doney at Landscape Studios, Cleveland. Artwork & layout by Ben Aucott.
