Wrekmeister Harmonies have always been a special band. They have had the best guests, the best compositions and the most overwhelmingly powerful sense of transcendence. Wrekmeister Harmonies are the kind of band who make me ask "Is this music?" Their latest offering, Light Falls is simply amazing. Featuring most of Godspeed You! Black Emperor as the backing band, Wrekmeister Harmonies have put out one of their most impressive and overwhelming records to date. A cohesive, brain altering artistic statement.
There's a lot to pick apart on Light Falls. This is an album that ebbs and flows but follows a solid narrative throughout. It's an album that climaxes dramatically and guides you by the hand towards something overwhelming. It shows you the grim and magical soundworlds that Wrekmeister Harmonies explore but also evolves on the theme and allows you to dig into all that this band represents. There is something wonderfully organic about Light Falls and it makes for some truly delicious listening. It shows you a new way forward in the world of outer sound and guides you into the bitter darkness of the modern age.
Light Falls is an album meant to be digested alone in your room so you can fully pick apart what this band represents. Wrekmeister Harmonies have gone above and beyond on this record and created something that forces you to question your very existence. When the album climaxes in screaming and beautiful noise, a slave to sheer volume Light Falls brings in whole new paradigms into the sound of a band who have never limited themselves sonically. Wrekmeister Harmonies is reigning triumphant, and better than ever.
