Uniform have certainly chosen the right style to articulate their pessimism. Clanging metal-on-metal, palm-muted riffs and unrelenting drum beats are ample tools to fashion a machine of apocalyptic torment. Wake in Fright isn’t much removed from the duo’s previous records. Blown-red synthetic kicks and cracks pummel away, while guitars scrape and pound with a grindcore intensity. Terrifying and violent, Wake in Fright is a perfectly logical response to the state of the world.|
