WAKE Canada



Rumbling darkness from the far north, Canada's blackened grindcore cult WAKE sound like an exorcism gone wrong – no chanting or moody instrumentals, just hell unleashed in torrents of blood, vomit and fire.


Touring Europe for the first time in 2012 with their intense debut LP "Leeches" and 7” split with Greek 'astrogrind' trio DEPHOSPHORUS, WAKE introduced themselves to the scene at Eindhoven's BLOODSHED FEST, and now it's time for them to bring their evil-hearted noise further into the heart of the Old Country for OBSCENE EXTREME 2013.


WAKE are an intense metallic, hardcore-fused grinding 5 piece from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Formed in the fall of 2009 they released Surrounded By Human Filth 7" in the spring of 2010. In support of the record the group completed 2 west coast US tours in 2010, as well as playing extensively around Western and Central Canada.


2011 saw the band release a now critically acclaimed full-length titled "Leeches" (produced by Pig Destroyers' Scott Hull) on Germany's 7 Degrees Records, tour the mid-west and eastern US and Canada, as well as record at NYC's Menegroth Studios, with Colin Marston (Krallice, Dysrythmia, etc.) behind the knobs. Those tracks became a split 7" with Greece's Dephosphorus in April 2012, out again on 7 Degrees Records. With an extensive US tour completed in the summer of 2012 as well a foray into Europe in the fall, which included Bloodshed Fest, WAKE will be releasing another split 7" in the winter, this time with Saskatoon's thrashy grinders Rehashed, out on Boston's Give Praise records. Another full-length release is planned for the beginning of 2013, which, with appearances at Maryland Death Fest and Obscene Extreme, is shaping up to be a great year for WAKE.
