Yet another positively stunning release from the Universal Consciousness label. They describe WRATH OF THE WEAK as "wall of sound/noise/shoegaze/black metal," and while I'm not one to typically agree with promotionally provided tools, their generic all encompassing genre descriptor pretty much nails it. Hypnotic swirls, making distortion seem so brilliantly deliberate and full of passion, this cassette is an emotional workout and not one suited for casual listening. I should have waited until winter, as these are sounds best heard alone, at night, and safely bundled. Solace is apparently the final release from this Buffalo, New York outfit...we should all be lucky enough to go out with such style.
