New York's Wreath Of Tongues continue to blow my mind every time I check in on them. Like the perfect soundtrack to a bloodbath killing spree, their songs are filled with more angst and hate than most humans can handle, and rarely ever comes up for a breath of air. They're easily one of the most violent sounding bands I've heard to come out of the big apple, and I can't wait for them to knock you in the face.
That's why I'm beyond stoked to premiere their latest offering, in the form of a 45 called Like Rats. Which means not only one, but two songs for your disgusted pleasures! Both songs contain the unrestrained level of raw aggression I spoke about earlier, and if you're into that sort of thing, buy the damn thing right now!
Wreath Of Tongues comments on the track meanings:
Reprobate – "When you wake up and it seems as though the universe keeps playing sick joke after joke on you: that's this song. Not a lot changes for people who are just trying to get by and live simple lives. More and more just keeps getting shoveled on top."
Enemy – "The sick, broken, boring and bored go out of their way to create drama where there is none. No matter where you go, you'll find these people in every nook and corner of life. How you handle these people that want to rattle your rage due to their own inadequacies is your choice."
Pre-order your copy of Wreath Of Tongues' Like Rats via their Bandcamp Page right now, or grab it for the official release this Friday!
