Wreche: Binds genres like a particle accelerator!

Wrenche – All My Dreams Came Through

Wreched states, «In Agony, to the Earth – and Heaven».

Wreche, a high stakes challenger of the metal genre returns with a violent haymaker on All My Dreams Came through. A colossal masterpiece, this album sees John Steven Morgan working alone – more unhinged, personal, and varied than on Weche’s 2017 eponymous debut w/ drummer Barret Baumgart. At once horrifying and beautiful, All My Dreams Came Through tfurther binds genres like a particle accelerator – an absolutely devastating collision, a nebulaic nightmare of spackled iridescent light and void-lusting despair.

Morgan’s brilliant songwriting and narrative structure, equally matched by his virtuosic performances on every instrument (piano, drums, vocals and synths) make this album something to seriously reckon with.

Pushing the boundaries of metal is a given when guitars have been trashed for an 88 key 700lb behemoth running hot on distortion and space echo. Terrifying, subterranean, and heavenly, Wreche transcends the sheer novelty of superficial texture swapping. The album hits the fringes of the most extreme musical ideas– simultaneously maintaining a loyalty to black metal’s aural aesthetic while hard-flipping the genres tired old past.

 Morgan’s lyrical poems tear through art, god, poverty, drugs, love and “life in the big city” as they are screamed with spine chilling conviction that sounds as mad and feral as the world around him. The otherworldly synth design and arrangements are unprecedented- an ominous spectoral presence levitating on the wasteland All My Dreams Came true paints. This isn’t just an experiment, it’s an interstellar meltdown.

Do yourself a favor and let this album rip your brain apart. Play it front to back and give it time to reveal its myriad miraculous stratified secrets. The invitation is an understatement and to miss this is to miss a masterful and haunting contribution to music, one that will inevitably set the tone for this year in metal. It is, and will be, unavoidable if you listen to extreme music – a ghastly expedition into the ether.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (5513 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
