New Heavy Sounds

MWWB 'The Harvest'

£19.00

‘The Harvest’ is MWWB’s fourth album, and is a record shot through with the trademark heavy MWWB sound. The chugging riffs and haunting melodies of Jessica Ball are all there, however it also sees the band adding more experimentation, a progressive approach, and going a bit more left field conceptually.

With ‘The Harvest’ MWWB have refined and honed their sound from their previous three records. 'The Harvest' is a carefully crafted distillation of ideas, written, conceived and sequenced to be listened to in its entirety (preferably in one sitting). MWWB have always loved film scores and this new album is in many ways, the soundtrack to a film. MWWB provides the musical narrative (the song titles also provide a pointer) and the listener's imagination does the rest.
To some extent, it shares similarities with Pink Floyd’s ‘Dark Side Of The Moon’. Not only by having the mix of experimentation and melodicism as that seminal record, but also in the way that it has been engineered and constructed as a seamless piece.

Nine tracks flowing into one another. Space age riff monsters segueing into shorter musical interludes, where John Carpenter rubs shoulders with Pink Floyd and a maelstrom of moog and mellotron. There are surprises, and of course a bucketload of heavy shit.

Kudos here must go to producer Chris Fielding, who has masterminded an epic sound world, with a much more close up ‘in your face’ mix. Meticulously bringing out every nuance, from soft and atmospheric, to expansive and crushingly heavy. The band have never sounded better.
