The Wake’s goal is to show the world that black metal returns with simplicity, but great passionate songwriting, proving a high intensity capable to reach big audiences again.
The Wake plays black metal having Dissection, Venom and Bathory as main inspiration, but their style reminds of some of the biggest Scandinavian names (Immortal, Darkthrone, Dark Funeral) and shows also a powerful melancholic side, which resembles the British premiere league of dark and depressive music (old Anathema, My Dying Bride, Cradle Of Filth).
