Wildspeaker is a blackened crust band from Dallas, TX consisting of vocalist Natalie Kahan, guitarists Nelson Favela and Zak Pitts, bassist Garry Brents (Cara Neir), and drummer Ricky Rivera. Their sound is heavily influenced by early crust punk, black metal and grind while thematically and lyrically the band focuses on the resilience of nature and downfall of human civilization. Wildspeaker's Prosthetic Records debut, Spreading Adder, features 11 tracks of grinding, blistering, crust self-produced in Brents home studio.
"Texan blackened crust miscreants Wildspeaker have a penchant for making music of the abrasive and filthy variety. Equal parts black metal misanthropy, doom despondency, crust vitriol, and hardcore aggression, their debut full-length a shining example of the best that can happen when (sub-)genre restrictions get left behind and bands progress freely into previously unexplored territory." - Decibel Magazine
