Wucan always tried to tie hard rocks loose ends where others would drop them. Deliberately they reference the european traditions of the genre. What separates them from epigones is the time reference. Wucan aren’t Escapists. They place themselves in the moment. »Heretic Tongues« is an album, that speaks of this world, not killing dragons. That is how Wucan want their new songs lyrics to be perceived. Therefore the band addresses the audience in their song »Fette Deutsche« about rage in German. It’s about attitude. And it’s about message.

Charismatic bandleader Francis Tobolsky once again presents herself as a singer, who can deliver a powerful and authentic performance. Her parts are often subtile layered arrangements. Francis proves to be on the peak of her ability and that she has advanced to one of the current top singers in Germany.

The band experiments not only with synthesizers and theremin, but also with complex soundscapes. Without diluting the original hard rock, they skillfully break out the genre from metal to disco. The flute, which always has been a unique trait of Wucans sounds, lines up with a multitude of instruments, only appearing where its necessary and without dominating.

Wucan’s latest studio album »Heretic Tongues« is more than just a sucession of hits. It’s an album to enjoy as whole.

Wucan is:
Francis Tobolsky – Vocals, Flute, Guitar, Theremin
Tim George – Guitar
Alexander Karlisch – Bass
Philip Knöfel – Drums
