mourner This sounds fresh and incredibly good. Vocals are fierce and versatile as is the songwriting. Wether the song is fast paced or midtempo, it's always thought through and totally well crafted. You can tell that a lot of work was put in this album and I can only say that I'll watch these guys closely.

bmurator Romanian / German Black Metal. This album is practically perfect in every way! The melancolic melodies, the guitars & the drums sound flawless & the vocals are fantastic. The production is extremely good too. It would not be fair for me to pick a favourite, all the songs really are that good! So all that is left to say is "buy it & enjoy"! Thanks LRM! Highly recommended!!!
Proem 02:10
02 - "Isolated Illusion" all is moving around us and we are still blinded by the stars named after ourselves by a star surrounded with different arrows of different sizes, sharper, with more cutting edges but regardless of these characteristics the stars are here to destroy and to die they are complex, unimaginably complex, but only for the small steps of the universe whatever we think about each other, we are perfect thereof …of the universe the stars are here to destroy the stars are here to die
03 - "Lost Painting" the painting is dead the creator of death remains untouchable through times we're lost on one of his artistic manipulations we are lost
Cadavers 04:11
04 - "Cadavers" dangerous stock of humans perambulates around my existence routinely mistreated morally we fucking desire to die to humiliate the existence billions of graves surrounded by sea i light these cadavers to discover mine a new world to come, a new disorder, a new cycle, no fucking conclusion
05 - "Ship Of Hope" [featuring Joshua Kabe Ashworth] Chapter I: disconnected from the moral carnage separated from the mental massacre we sail in our story and we do not wait for the beautiful sleep to take us away we sail and sail through these libelous times til all our visions become alive Chapter II: i am the face that smiles i am the warm voice who supports you eternal and unconditional i am the loud, noisy, full of exuberance and whose energy you feed in these clouds inside their waters we swim relentless we'll let freedom to howl with us i am the one full of hope i am the ship of hope i am the one full of hope untouched by the darkness and nothingness i am your wild expression, free, without fear, bold and passionate nature is recording us she knows everything
06 - "The Painter Of Voices" voices making choruses that link corpses in a sea of noises life is a season in fire i laugh with understanding at your idiot thoughts mephistophelian islands are burning to carry your corpses into everlastingness being warned from the white pages written with white paste being mauled by the pride of being nobody your appreciation stabbed me in the back the painter of mind the painter of death in the sense of humans i am mentally deranged but the humans have no fucking sense
07 - "Earth's Necropolis" [featuring Michael Pilat] walk through minds to light innocent cadavers immure them around the mountain of complexes i am inside of this mountain choke with your revelations and become a part of the necropolis loneliness is a cage of freedom loneliness is my kingdom earth come take them
08 - "Trial Against Humanity" [featuring Costin-Alexandru Chioreanu] so strong so passionate shall i fly above myself or shall i save the world from the beauty of despair welcome to my funeral enjoy the tears and forever silence
Closure 02:24


The Wake is a Romanian / German duo and this is their debut album, the result of an 8 years work.

Pre-order jewel-case CD: shop.loudragemusic.com/the-wake-earths-necropolis

The first pressing of the CD is limited to 500 copies, 100 of them will feature a special insert and will be available directly from The Wake here: bloodandfire.bandcamp.com/album/earths-necropolis

The Wake’s goal is to show the world that black metal returns with simplicity, but great passionate songwriting, proving a high intensity capable to reach big audiences again.

The Wake plays black metal having Dissection, Venom and Bathory as main inspiration, but their style reminds of some of the biggest Scandinavian names (Immortal, Darkthrone, Dark Funeral) and shows also a powerful melancholic side, which resembles the British premiere league of dark and depressive music (old Anathema, My Dying Bride, Cradle Of Filth).
