If you don’t have Spotify and you don’t feel like immediately dropping ten dollars on my new favorite techdeath album, and current album of the year (tied with Eidola‘s opus Degeneraterra), WRVTH’s new self-titled record is streaming over at Metalsucks. The quintet’s new album is an unignorable masterpiece, so you owe it to yourself to give it at least one listen, which will probably quickly become five or six.
The album is undeniably emotional: the clean arpeggios reverberate throughout the listener’s skull and drench the album in a melancholy atmosphere, the vocals cry out in anguish across every track, and two incredible saxophone solos provide an incredible grounding after marathons through distant and spacy writing. The guitars, when they go from post-black/post-metal mode into their technical riffing freakouts, are a blast of pummeling sound that brings it all back around to where the album started. It’s a potent combination, and it’s really not to be missed.
Wrvth comes out today. Pick it up on iTunes, or download it on Spotify, or something, because this is one of the most incredible, genre-encompassing, emotive albums to come out in a long, long time. Trust me. You won’t regret it. Check out the stream here if you haven’t been swayed to immediately drop in before testing the waters.
