Wake dropped their crushing new album Devouring Ruin in March and they're not done yet! Wake has already returned with a brand new EP titled Confluence, which the band said "is our place to carry on with some of the experiments we had composed and flesh them out into something concise." It's one hell of a ride through three songs and 20+ minutes of music that really ought to solidify Wake's place as one of the best metal acts out there.
"The whole idea of this EP was to go out of our comfort zone and try some different things," said vocalist Kyle Ball. "This time around, I avoided writing overly personal lyrics; there’s a bit of it sprinkled throughout the album, but not a lot. The concepts on this album are about exploring the boundaries of reality and altered states of consciousness; hypothetically inhabiting these realities causing them to crash within themselves.
"Confluence—meaning the merger of two or more things—directly plays into the artwork, as well as the lyrical themes. The album title was inspired by the album art, which depicts two realities inhabiting one space through a window or doorway.”
