New York City noise-rock gods Unsane return with a vengeance on their long-awaited seventh album. Recorded by the band and producer Andrew Schneider at Brooklynâ€™s Translator Audio (Shrinebuilder, Keelhaul, etc.), Wreck is an unfettered burst of pent-up emotions and frustrations channeled into songâ€”an unflinching glance into a type of life others probably should not lead. Â From the shock and awe of lead track â€śRatâ€ť and the stunningly damaged â€śDecay,â€ť to the doom and gloom of the heavy-handed â€śNo Chanceâ€ť and the transcendental brainwork of â€śStuck,â€ť Wreck is darkly abrasive and poetic music delivered with a fearsome intensity. A punishing yet ultimately tuneful album, realistic in subject matter and as engaging as it is abrasive, the album showcases Unsane at their legendary best. Chris Spencerâ€™s vocals and lyrics positively ache with fear and loathing (resembling the sound of a man trapped in the New York Subway system) while his searing Telecaster howl and pulverizing chords wreak havoc over Vincent Signorelliâ€™s thundering drums and Dave Curranâ€™s muscular, thick-as-lava bass lines. Â Unsane celebrates its 20th anniversary by delivering the darkest and most personal record of their celebrated career; Wreck is the bandâ€™s defining moment.
