Wail comes to us from Norway and the music moves in the paths of heavy classic metal. The topics they record musically on their album "Civilization Maximus" are topics of mass control and brainwashing, as they talk about disasters such as global warming, epidemics, etc. They claim to be preachers of the "revelation of the civilized world" and who I am for to doubt?
You will find the songs a lot of fun, they will remind you a lot and maybe some of you will identify them a bit, saying that they have got something from Maiden or from Judas or Ghost. I will tell you that his musical influences are clear and the singer's voice has often been almost identical to that of Dickinson. They have the same hues and grits and that is impressive to hear. Of course, it does not reach the master, but I do not think he needs it at all. They have "spread" a veil over them so that this secrecy regarding the names and the CV can intrigue the listener.
Starting with "Down The Mountain", I found their first and perhaps greatest influence, that of the Maiden. Oh bandara, you have grown up generations and generations and you continue. And after the delusion (s.y .: you are constantly rising in my estimation) I will take you to "Endless Repetition", which from the first notes will take you back to the golden age and specifically… no, you better find out on your own. As for the voice, if they told me that Bruce has a brother in Norway I would eat it normally. Voice matching is creepy. With "Presage" we have more stable melodies, more solid and more maiden. NWOBHM / Priest mood in "Through The Ice", while of course they maiden ζουν they mine I wanted to say. Did you see any confusion?
Strong introduction, riff groove, fast pace with a need for speed in "You've Got Nothing" while "Manherder" has its own energy. Intense and dynamic "Overwhelmed", with anarchist wedge rhythms. "Civilization Maximus", which is also his latest album, has a doom mood and more solid vocals.
The album is fun, a bit dark, but also with very nice themes. A beautiful work unglazed and with earthy flaws that show a different aesthetics. Have a nice trip, guys!

Satire. A word that lost it's weight the day the world became so obscure that yesterday's satirical content became the news of the day. It’s time to step up the game.
The cultiest of cultist cult bands, a Norwegian heavy metal quintet best known as preachers of the 'apocalypse of the civilized world' as well as being observed claiming responsibility for catastrophes such as global warming, epidemics and commercial radio. They seem to be using their mesmerizing heavy metal music to lure young and old into their cultist organization.
A spokesman of the group has been quoted with the following comment regarding the choice of musical direction: "I’m intelligent. Some people would say I’m very, very, very intelligent. According to my research, heavy metal is the most commercially available, sexy and danceable genre out there. It was quite obvious really".
The band has been nurtured, cultivated and refined to be able to write, perform and seduce on a level that few can assert to. This under close observation of the terrifying and quite flamboyant front man that goes under the name «The Singer».
Wail has been getting recognition as a hard working live band on both festival and club scenes, and the response is usually in the vein of 'International standard' and 'who or what the hell are these people?'. The group prefer not to discuss the latter.
The dust has just settled after their debut album «Resilient» 2018. Produced by Kjartan Hestehaugen and Ronni Le Tekrø (TNT).
The follow up album, produced by Titan Labs studio/Riccardo Daga «Civilization Maximus» features 9 tracks circulating a theme of manipulation/indoctrination as the band ventures deeper into the antagonistic rabbit hole.
Wail has been getting recognition as a hard working live band on both festival and club scenes, and the response is usually in the vein of 'International standard' and 'who or what the hell are these people?'. The group prefer not to discuss the latter. Get ready to rejoice in salvation, tribalism and an oblique glance at extremism.
You are hereby invited to partake in song, a secret, a promises of eternal life, presented by the masterful crossroad salesmen of Wail whom might not be as glamorous as they make themselves out to be.
