BandMetalPunk

W.I.T.W.'s sound is incomparable, barely imitated and never duplicated. Brutally aggressive and fervently well-written Metal influenced Hardcore which is unafraid to rebel against the genres restricting conventions.

Biography

What was created as an experimental metalcore sound just 4 years ago, Wrenchintheworks drops the gimmicks and the “dog and pony show” that thrives on the many stages of popular metal-hardcore hybrids’ shows. They take the originality of the contemporary noisy sounds along the lines of the legendary faces in underground music - Converge, Every Time I Die, and Zao – and have honed a style of progressive music that’s genuinely unique and savagely majestic. A sound in which is incomparable, barely imitated and never duplicated. Brutally aggressive and fervently well-written Metal influenced Hardcore, which is unafraid to rebel against the genres restricting conventions.
Praised by many as “the hardest working band in CT,” Wrenchintheworks’ accomplishments have exceeded the status quoe of the average underground band. The release of their 2005 full-length, “Prodigal Transmission,” took the band on their first self promoted national tour, an eastern Canadian tour, and countless weekends of shows, contiously teaming up with a broad range out of state bands. Proving that even without the help of a record label, Wrenchintheworks is ready to take their place among the ranks of national touring and recording acts. The members of W.I.T.W., Andy Nelson, Justin Mehl and Darrell Tauro are seeking to collectively drive into the frontiers of the future of music as leaders. With limitless imagination, work ethic, and passion for the music they create, Wrenchintheworks is looking forward to shattering new ground in ears and on tour.
