Published Apr 09, 2018Wrong return with Feel Great, an album that further expands on their Helmet riff-worship sound. Borrowing elements from bands like Torche, Nothing and Fight Amp, Wrong create something unexpected.
Wrong have always been a slimmed-down sludge metal band of the most basic elements, never staying too long on an idea and trimming away all the bullshit. What resulted, from a bare-bones place of their raw elements, has built up from there — they have incorporated elements of lead guitar melodies on this record. Songs like "Pustule," "Upgrade" and "Come Apart Mend" stand out as melodic tracks that would be at home on a Torche record. These intermittent spurts of melody throughout give the album much-needed variety and depth.
Wrong are really good at what they do. So good that they do not need to charm you with any excess. While this type of music doesn't speak to everyone, it hits home loud and clear to its core audience. If you pine for '90s alternative metal, look no further than Feel Great. (Relapse)
