Wreck and Reference- No Youth

One of the heavier industrial albums I’ve listened to in a while, No Youth by Wreck and Reference, is the followup to the project’s 2011 album, Black Cassette. Hailing from California, Wreck and Reference are infusing heavy, doom-esque moments into otherwise spacious and hypnotic tracks. The track “Nausea” even showcases some loud and mechanically delivered black metal-style blast beats.

No Youth sets a very specific mood, but utilizes a variety of percussion, and a large range of intensity to stand out amidst its peers. The album was even mixed and mastered by Colin Marson of Krallice, which definitely gives the album somewhat of a seal of approval in some circles–this being one of them.
