Taking the innovation of a "contempo-noise" alternative genre and joining it with the fundamental excellence of bands like Converge, Living Sacrifice, Mastodon and Dillinger Escape Plan, Wrench In The Works has honed a style of progressive music that is genuinely unique and savagely majestic.
A sound which is brutally aggressive joins with well-written metal-influenced-hardcore to show its unabashed rebellion against the genre's restricting conventions. As experimental metal begins to flow with the mainstream. Wrench In The Works desists from the gimmicks that plague the stage during so many metal-hardcore hybrid shows, allowing the unconventionality of their writing to shine through.
Wrench In The Works' accomplishments have exceeded the status quo of the average underground band. The band released their Facedown debut "Lost Art of Heaping Coal" in 2008. Touring nation wide supporting such national acts as War of Ages, Life In Your Way, Our Last Night, Once Nothing, as well as festival appearances at Cornerstone and Stillborn Fests'.
Now, with seemingly limitless ingenuity and passion, members Andy Nelson, Greg Thomas, Darrell Tauro and Derek Andersen will continue shattering eardrums as well as genre barriers as they release their sophomore Facedown release "Decrease/Increase" due out March 16, 2010.
