BRAKEL stream debut

Black metal noiseniks Brakel stream the entirety of their highly anticipated debut album, Wranger Wanen, at heavily trafficked web-portal Set for international release on May 1st via Signal Rex, hear Brakel’s Wranger Wanen in its entirety exclusively here: Exclusieve albumpremière: Brakel – Wranger wanen – Addergebroed

The first full-length recording of Belgium’s BrakelWranger Wanen comprises nine songs across a time-evaporating / stretching 27 minutes. Signposts among raw black metal’s elite exist here – be it Black Cilice, Candelabrum, Múspellzheimr, or those orbiting the Signal Rex-endorsed Clandestine Circle of Aldebaran – but beneath the alternately shocking / shimmering soundfield bubble torched debris of power electronics. Hateful and ghoulish in equal measure but utterly alien in effect, the ghostly surge of in-the-red decibels across Wranger Wanen get wrangled into obscene shapes; with all those indeterminate pulses underneath, sometimes Brakel’s sound approaches the mechanistic…if the Industrial Revolution was visualized in The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, such is the expressionist horror on display.

No identities, no fun, no past, no future: Brakel assault the unsuspecting with Wranger Wanen.
