Wreck and Reference - Black Cassette (Remastered)

A remastered version of Wreck and Reference's Black Cassette was added to the Flenser Records Bandcamp. This is experimental doom/noise rock, done without guitars, they use keyboards, synths, samples, and excellent drumming to provide the heavy sounds. The vocals and the almost "poppy" feel of some of the tracks makes it sound kind of like The Cure playing doom. Here are two reviews from Don't Count on it Reviews and Invisible Oranges and an interview from Cvlt Nation.

The original (non-remastered) version of Black Cassette is available from Wreck and Reference's own Bandcamp

  1. New one from Wreck and Reference, No Youth is definitely worth a mention here. Now available as a "Name Your Own Price" download, it's a no brainer!

    1. Listening to it right now, and you're absolutely right. It is dark stuff.
