Who’s feeling thrashy? Wanting to just wreck your neck? Wartooth will take you on a journey to quench your requirements with their album ‘Programmed Dichotomy’. You better be strapped in and ready to ride this roller-coaster. From soaring vocals, heavy everything, grit, pouring inspiration from every thrash band ever from the 80s and 90s there is nothing you will hate. Taking from the title of the album, the word Dichotomy, meaning, “A division or contrast between two things that are or are represented as being opposed or entirely different”, I feel Wartooth explore everything Dichotomy stands for within this world today. With all the division between certain groups within society today, ‘Programmed Dichotomy’ displays a perfect portrayal and representation of this through both their song titles and lyricism all throughout this album. Production wise, ‘Programmed Dichotomy’ is professionally done, filling every gap, no unclean empty pockets of space within mixing and mastering, leaving the listeners with their daily dose of dopamine release.
This record has everything for you. If you’re hating the world then you can look no further than ‘Programmed Dichotomy’ to help you raise some hell and jam out for 49 minutes.
Release Year: 2021
