Wolves At The Door, the new album by Chicago metallic hardcore outfit NEQUIENT, is streaming in its entirety at New Noise Magazine as the album is prepared for release this Friday through Nefarious Industries.
An unrelenting eleven-track assault, Wolves At The Door merges elements of hardcore, sludge, grind, death, and black metal, with a vibrant punk energy, showcasing NEQUIENT’s talents as writers and performers earned through their years of DIY recording and touring. The band pummels listeners from all directions but never forgets to land the hook, packed with relentless, fleet-fingered riffs, backed by d-beats, single-foot blasts, and an array of inventive fills. The vocals shift from mid-range barks to death metal grunts and pained shrieks, unified by inexhaustible aggression and a lyrical bent toward social critique.

Recorded by Pete Grossmann at Bricktop Recording (Weekend Nachos, Immortal Bird, Disrotted) and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Integrity, All Pigs Must Die, Full Of Hell), and completed with artwork by M.G. Miller (Bongripper, Lord Mantis, Sick/Tired), NEQUIENT’s Wolves At The Door is a dystopian, by-the-throat album in the vein of Converge, Baptists, Cursed, and Early Graves, with intense views on societal and political aspects of the modern world.
