The Flenser is proud to reissue No Youth, the debut album from California heavy experimental duo Wreck and Reference. Originally released in 2012, No Youth quickly went out of print and has become a sought-after collector’s item. Formed by drummer Ignat Frege and multi-instrumentalist Felix Skinner, Wreck and Reference augments the typical heavy-guitar-driven doom tradition with frenzied electronic samples. Usually filed under “Metal,” the duo defies genre classifications, presenting an existential threat to the tired and trite conformity found within the metal hegemony. Their melancholic, fierce and catchy sound is crafted with synths in place of guitar, along with live drums and vocals. Drawing on influences ranging from industrial to doom metal and noise rock, No Youth is a unique mix of seemingly contradictory elements that results in a devastatingly heavy, somber and addictive whole.  “The uncategorizable Wreck and Reference has released two weirdly heavy and unnerving records thus far—Black Cassette and No Youth—by scribbling together doom metal, industrial, drone, noise and whatever else with drums, guitar and a Korg sampler. Riffs and sonic quirks are regularly abandoned as the songs move forward, making for unpredictable cliffhangers that leave listeners wanting more.” —NPR  “... spare, haunted, and riveting.” —Stereogum  “Youth is an unconventional composition. Wreck and Reference have no rules.” —Cvltnation
