Canada’s THE WRING New Video “Fallen” Comments On The Chaos of Last Year’s Political Protests In Canada and USA
New Album “Spectra” Out Now! via WormHoleDeath Records
Releasing the third album “Spectra” this past December via WormHoleDeath Records, Sudbury, ON’s The Wring fronted by solo artist Don Dewulf with guest musician Marco Minnemann (The Aristocrats), vocalist Chandler Mogel, Canadian bass superstar Reggie Hache and sessions keyboardist Isamu McGregor is sharing the next video “Fallen” in support of the full-length.
Don Dewulf explains the track:
“The theme of this was a response to the protests and civil disobedience in both Washington DC and Ottawa, Canada during the Covid pandemic. It’s incredible how a single charismatic mouthpiece can gather the rabble of humanity and shape it into a weapon. The intro is odd and staccato, my musical interpretation of crowds of rioters with no real purpose other than chaos. The main riff is simple and, I think, powerful. Love the solo and the end section on this one.”

Don Dewulf’s project has been growing by leaps and bounds, and this new release will intrigue listeners across the heavy spectrum. “Spectra” is a bit like a 1970s King Crimson album, but without any ethereal soliloquies and certainly with a more significant hard rock/metal influence. It is a cauldron of hard rock, jazz, metal, classical, 80’s rock, 70’s rock, and probably a few other influences. It’s a vivid progressive sound that is tight, concise, and well-executed with interesting melody, rhythm, and lyrical themes.
Dewulf comments on the album:
“I called this record ‘Spectra’ because it really touches on a wide range of musical styles and themes. I think that each listener will hear something different in the compositions. The mixes are very layered with a lot of detail; you can listen to it many times and still continue to hear new things! I also like the somewhat incorrect interpretation of Spectra as the plural of Spectre as there are interesting themes that are hidden in the mix, lyrics, and artwork.”
“Spectra” was produced by Don Dewulf, mixed by Francis Perron at Radicart Studios, mastered by Yannick St-Amand, and the album artwork was done by Gord Woolley.
“Spectra” was released on December 16, 2022, via WormHoleDeath Records and is recommended listening for fans of Opeth, Porcupine Tree, and Rush.

“Here’s one for prog dorks. This outfit’s third outing (Spectra) features drums by Marco Minnemann so you know the rhythms are mad. The regulars in the band ain’t slouches either though. This is intricate and melodic prog done well.” – Metal Injection
“A band composed of top artists from the world prog scene, each of whom brings their own style to the band’s sound. Technique and energy, melodic passages, dynamic and expressive vocals and elaborate instrumental sections characterise the album. A recommended listen for all lovers of Progressive Metal sounds, an album to listen to again and again, always managing to give us positive emotions.” – Progressive Rock Journal
“Tired of prog metal bands who fire away odd rhythms, fast solos and complex arrangements? Half of them trying to sound like Dream Theater but all failing completely? Look no further. The Wring from Canada offers great musicians who find their own way through the prog metal jungle. I said great musicians and I really stand for that. Or how about Marco Minneman (drums), Chandler Mogel (vocals), Don Dewulf (guitars), Reggie Hache (bass, keyboards) and Isamu McGregor (keyboards)”… Sometimes they are a bit more commercial, like in the first song ”Stiletto”, reminding me a lot of Threshold. Other songs bring a bombastic wall of sound, with riffs do die for – ”The Wolf” is a great example. The early parts of ”Fallen” has some Rush vibes (of the later and more rock base Rush era) and also softer parts Mogel is a very good vocalist, and he can alter his voice a lot. Something of a voice chameleon!” – Melodic.net
“The opening notes of ‘Sins’ remind me of the opening salvo in Judas Priest’s ‘The Ripper’. Some of the riff structures are also reminiscent of Priest and it’s another great track.” – TheProgSpace
“The third album Spectra by the Canadian progressive rock project The Wring is downright infectious with its joy of playing and catchy Hard Prog Rock songs. There really is a lot of light and very little shadow here.” – Soundmagnet
