One of the great bands of the '90s, Unsane's 1991 debut is often considered a major highlight of that decade, and this seventh record (their first since 2007) bears the marks of the noise, metal and hardcore niche they've bored out of the underground since their beginnings. Not surprisingly, the songs on Wreck are loud, loud, loud and grind forth at a tempo that is neither slow nor fast. It's just not stopping, maybe ever. "No Chance" is where they go straight over the top of any expectations. As usual, Chris Spencer's hate-spewing poetry and endlessly pissed-off vocals never get old.
