“an immersive and transformative listening experience that should make a big impact for these Canadians.” – No Clean Singing
“In the spirit of Epic Black Metal and the Cascadian style, Wilt have crafted a worthy addition to the sub-genre ” – Wonderbox Metal
“Wilt have provided a tremendous piece with “Moving Monoliths” that proves digging down into your deepest self can have rewarding results. Things don’t have to result in war and bloodied scalps all the time, and it’s great to have a band like this that can offer volume and heaviness but also a place to find solace.” – Meat Mead Metal
“Moving Monoliths” is a crushing feat that has been labored over for quite some time. By digging deeply inward, the songwriting core of this band has dredged the mournful depths of the self to unveil a unique glimpse into the human condition, for all its faults, heartbreak and despair. The results are impressive as Wilt skillfully unveils a wide range of emotion and atmosphere on these 4 lengthy tracks to effortlessly entwine the creative forces of black and doom metal to call their own. A fierce live entity in their own right, Wilt has broken the “studio project” mold to bring this quintet’s jarring sound and fire to the masses as they are soon to embark on a Canadian Tour. Moving Monoliths is a fantastic debut full-length and we at Bindrune are proud to share this crushing entity with you all.

Wilt was formed by Brett Goodchild and Jordan Dorge in 2010 with the original intention of creating a black metal studio project. After the reception of the Self Titled debut in Oct 2012 surpassed all expectations, and gained some serious international attention, the duo decided to make Wilt a full time project and assemble a live lineup. Wilt has done a bunch of Canadian tours, played many festivals such as Noctis Metalfest 666 where they shared the stage alongside blasphemy, carcass, bolzer, candlemass, possessed to name a few. In 2014 wilt decided to break the mold of the 2 piece studio/live lineup band and continue as a full band where all 5 members involved will contribute to the sophomore effort. Early 2015 Wilt signed with Bindrune recordings and will be releasing the bands sophomore effort ‘Moving Monoliths’ in Sept/Oct. Taking their unique brand of cold atmospheric black metal into new progressive and even unexpected domains. “Moving Monoliths” was once again self produced by Goodchild himself in Saxon Sound Studios, and the beautiful gatefold cover art was done by renowned artist Nick Keller.
