The Wake - Earth's Necropolis
Official release date: September 23rd, 2017
Although the composition and recording process started in 2009, Earth’s Necropolis was mixed and mastered throughout 2016. The band never rehearsed in their whole time of existence, nor a single live performance took place. Travis Smith (Death, King Diamond, Opeth) contributed to this release with his occult and dark art, while a few musicians joined as guest vocalists, such as Costin-Alexandru Chioreanu (Bloodway), Michael Pilat (ex-The Ocean) and Joshua Kabe Ashworth (Society’s Finest, ex-Zao).

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).
