Wrought Iron Hex / Press

“A lot of music of the metal or prog-rock variety demands to be played long and loud. This is certainly the case with Wrought Iron Hex's "A&A," a freewheeling old-school metal dervish of a song that spirals and blares like it's trying to escape the confines of the band's instruments. Moreover, songs such as "Guilty Conscience," with its bass-driven lead-in and peculiar breakdowns, show the band has many more tricks to play beyond mere force and propulsion.”

“Anyone with an affinity for the heavier music created during the 1990s without question needs to check out this band. That being said, there are several other eras of music whose influence creeps into the songwriting.”

“Folks, the five songs that make up this EP rock. They rock hard. No ifs, ands, or buts.....If you’re looking for something new, heavy, and interesting then look no further.”

“The album “III” is full of punk infused post metal grunge inspired music that reminds me of something like a cross between Mudhoney and Screaming Trees with a tiny bit of Tool at times. Lead singer Jason Hurache Foster actually has a great voice and I really enjoy his deep, natural vocal tone. I love hearing a singer that you can understand.”

The Great Southern Brainfart

“In its sense of telepathic urgency, “Across the River” is brilliantly reminiscent of Wire ala “Reuters” and “12XU.” “A&A” is an epically clamoring communique which radiates a sense of chaotic desperation. The remaining tracks are a powerful melange of wild churn (“Know the Truth”), dynamic urgency (“Santa Blanket”) and foreboding, electrifying menace (“Guilty Conscience”). I am normally jaded regarding the bludgeon-core offered up by many heavy-duty rock bands, but in this case I am blown away by how emotionally gripping these flinty rock compositions are; there’s barely an ounce of fat on any of them and they represent an extremely high level of musical accomplishment in the hard rock field. The band avoids both the strenuous cliches of death metal and the vagaries of experimental music and forges a striking type of high art from iron chains of sound. Outstanding of its kind and quite good by any other standard. Highly recommended. a certified keeper.”
