Boasting a hearty crossover of punk, hardcore and metal influences, Wisdom In Chains has been crushing through the competition since its 2001 formation. Mid-2015 will see the rise of the band's fifth studio full-length, "The God Rhythm." Fast Break! Records comments:
"'The God Rhythm' injects a continued evolution of awareness and intelligence into the genre, all while destroying clichés, relentlessly crossing boundaries and claiming those new territories, effectively ushering in a new era for the band. Mixing a hardline return and development of infectious oi!/punk-inspired hooks and courses, while maintaining their traditional hardcore roots, Wisdom In Chains has clearly has pushed the envelope of their previous works beyond all previous thresholds, and the result is the band's finest work to date. 'The God Rhythm' is also the first recording with new drummer Luke Rota from the Bronx (ex-Roger Miret and The Disasters, Stigma), who joins the rest of the crew, vocalist Mad Joe Black bassist Evan, and Richie Krutch on and Mav on guitars."
