« The Atrocity Reports » is WHEELFALL‘s new album, a follow-up and violent reaction to 2015 double album and novel « Glasrew Point ».
Provoking a reaction, discomfort, even disgust, denouncing mass control, to ultimately disturb the Establishment and awaken consciences, this is the basic premise of the industrial music activists in the late 70s. A implicitly political counterculture, structured and thoughtful. Without worrying about the music aesthetics and constructions marked-out by a Rock that became anything but subversive, the Industrial movement wished to think the present while Punk did not envisage the future. Fabien W. Furter (FWF) claims this inheritance and questions the instincts of Man through WHEELFALL, an ambitious project which led the band to the status of one of the best Industrial Metal band today.
WHEELFALL’s latest album, « The Atrocity Reports », reflects the violence of our time, this fascinating violence clumsily staged by the media and which the band analyzes the mechanisms. As instinctual as it is intellectualized, the band’s music is rich in nuances, experiments and interrogations.
For fans of Ministry, Tryptikon, Neurosis, Voivod

« A real journey into urban violence, the nightmarish vision of a society cast in concrete and blood, The Atrocity Reports is already a must have for industrial metal fans and more generally of « conscious » metal. »
Rock Hard France (FR)
« [A] feeling of suffocation that had not been felt to that extent since the Celtic Frost’s Monotheist. »
New Noise Magazine (FR)
« A kind of Ministry that is even more devious and aggressive than the original […] Is there a single french industrial metal band that can keep raising the bar for them? »
No Clean Singing (USA)
« There are different rooms in the mansion of Hell, and Wheelfall visit many of them. Unerringly bleak and disturbing. »
« There is absolutely nothing to throw away. A superb success. »
« Terror and provocation are specialities of the house. »
« A raw, life-threatening sound framework, which is able to teach the inexperienced listener the fear. »
