Chatham-Kent connection: Both guys live in Toronto, but grew up in Chatham-Kent, and both are Pain Court high school graduates. Joel & Nigel played locally in heavier bands before moving away.

4. WRK4
5. WRK5
6. WRK6
7. WRK7

Notes:
  “For the 2nd album by Toronto group Biugek, called WRK, the drums-and-keyboards duo go deeper inside their metallic and mathematical vortex. And go to work. They aren’t laying back into the jams here, this is full on running a tight ship experimental polyrthythmic metal – a palate of dry black-and-white shadows mechanically running off course, a puzzling mind within the mind. This is fucking sick and it keeps coming at you in the best way. Picture an eccentric machinist curious what the gears can do when pushed to the limit, before they pop and pull apart in a chopper whirl of tools and die, that second before it explodes, all that study for a firework flash of time. Where perfect left turns act as alleyway shortcut savvy, blueprint navigation theirs alone, laying the dynamite’s trail, with the smoke cloud’s tail, where unwinding and serpentine entanglements of traps and keys pummel, work the shadows, and tease utter deterioration. For that firecracker blaze in a powdered second, they go to work.” – Kevin Cahill, Rotational Review
