Unleashing The Beast With DAVE LUPTON From FLAMING WREKAGE

Share This:

“There’s a few things on this album that we haven’t really done before.”

Dave Lupton

For the last decade and a half the name Flaming Wrekage has been synonymous with hard, thrashy and brutal Australian music.

Since forming in Sydney in 2009 the band have raised the bar for touring and commitment in this country, constantly throwing themselves at the mercy of the metal Gods in countless trips around this country and beyond.

Not content to live on past glory, Flaming Wrekage are about to unleash their hardest-hitting record to date in the form of Terra Inferna on April 26.

Showcasing a more experimental side of the band that can only be borne from self-confidence and belief, Terra Inferna looks set to elevate Flaming Wrekage even further, with vocalist/guitarist Dave Lupton joining HEAVY to talk about the album.

“It’s all systems go at the moment,” he began. “I just picked up some merch from the printers this morning, so we’ll be going out with the pre-orders pretty soon. It’s been really good. It’s an intense process, but super rewarding, much like the recording of the album, I would say. We really jammed everything we could into the time that we had and I think we’ve got something really special with this one. We’ve had a couple of singles out already, so hopefully everyone’s digging it, but I’m really looking forward to getting the whole thing out. It’s going to be a cathartic experience to get the whole album out on the world.”

In the full interview, Dave speaks more about the upcoming album release, Terra Inferno, and the band’s experimental approach to songwriting, including the use of synths, slide guitar, and percussion. He also reflected on the band’s evolution and shift towards a more diverse and cohesive sound. Lupton shared insights into the band’s decision to use vintage equipment for recording, emphasizing the desire to create a big, impactful sound reminiscent of classic metal albums.

The conversation also touched on the band’s upcoming exclusive album launch shows in Melbourne and Sydney, where Lupton shared insights into the band’s approach to preparing the set list and announced a competition for fans to win a bar tab and early merch access. Additionally, Lupton explained the intentional decision behind the band’s name without the letter “C,” which has become a recognizable feature of their logo.
