Canadian grinders Wake had a stellar 2018! Their break thru Translation Loss album “Misery Rites” was the toast of the grindcore town. Touring North America and being featured in Metal publications had the band in the thick of things for year end accolades. Being good Canadian boyz (eh) they had no prob crossing the country in the dead of winter. We caught up with vocalist Kyle Ball during their recent stopover in town. We discussed the success of said record and the trials and tribulations of being on the road. Run, don’t walk, and grab a copy of “Misery Rites” today! In our “News, Views, and Tunes”, we discuss “old timers” skateboarding and pay tribute to RAM alum Bruce Corbitt (Rigor Mortis, Warbeast). Musically, we crank Wake’s latest, Ossuarium, Reagan SS, and The Moth Gatherer! Horns!!
