Wheel’s ‘Pyre’ Is Bruising, Progressive Finnish Hard Rock

6 22 18 WheelWheel’s ‘Pyre’ is bruising, progressive Finnish hard rock. These Helsinki natives “have been working together since 2015 when former guitarist, Saku introduced James Lascelles (singer/guitarist) to Mikko Määttä (bassist) and Santeri Saksala (drummer).” They claim to be known for their “meticulous attention to detail, a fondness for unusual meters and poly-rhythms and their explosive live shows. They have already toured Germany and the UK and are planning more shows in 2018 to support their latest release, The Divide EP.” These guys certainly bring the prog to radio rock. What’s really impressive about this piece is the way it doesn’t sacrifice compositional complexity or heaviness for its pop sensibility. These guys really have a handle on what could bring metal back to the mainstream. Check out ‘Pyre’ below!
