Taking the innovation of a "contempo-noise" alternative genre and joining it with the fundamental excellence of bands like Converge, Deadguy and Zao, Wrench In The Works has honed a style of progressive music that is genuinely unique and savagely majestic. A sound which is brutally aggressive joins with well-written metal-influenced-hardcore to show its unabashed rebellion against the genre's restricting conventions. As experimental metal begins to flow with the mainstream, Wrench In The Works desists from the gimmicks that plague the stage during so many metal-hardcore hybrid shows, allowing the unconventionality of their writing to shine through.
Wrench In The Works' accomplishments have exceeded the status quo of the average underground band. The release of their 2005 full-length, Prodigal Transmission, took the band on their first self promoted national tour as well as an eastern Canadian tour and countless weekend shows, continuously teaming up with a broad range of bands including P.O.D., Maylene and the Sons of Disaster, Hatebreed, The Red Chord and Pig Destroyer.
With seemingly limitless ingenuity and passion, members Andy Nelson, Greg Thomas, Darrell Tauro and Derek Andersen will continued shattering eardrums as well as genre barriers as they released their sophomore Facedown release Decrease / Increase in 2010.
In late 2010 however, the band announced that they were calling it a day:
After over a decade of playing music together Wrench In The Works has officially decided to call it quits. We would like to thank everyone at Facedown Records for believing in us, giving us an opportunity and most of all being our friends. We would also like to thank all of the amazing bands we toured/played with and became friends with through our travels as well as all of the people we met and became friends with, it was definitely awesome and we couldn’t have done it without you.
