Wreck & Reference's No Youth art
Wreck & Reference

Demo is an abbreviation for demonstration and Wreck & Reference's Black Cassette demo last year was a clear demonstration of intent - of what this California band was capable of. Now the band have created No Youth, a new LP that sits somewhere in the nether between gothic post-punk darkness, noise and ambient shadow, and epic metallic majesty with elements of black metal and hardcore, Wreck and Reference occupy a unique space on No Youth. Bauhaus-ian moments meet with Swans style dirge-and-purge and evolve into shoegaze-y black metal in a wholly cohesive manner; check out the wild trip for yourself. The album is available for pay-what-you-want-download and it is streaming in full below....

reads like a line from an Onion article.
