We first heard from Maximilian Wentz in December of last year upon the release of his single “Sorry.” That track introduced us to a multi-talented young singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Boston, Massachusetts. The 2021 New England Music Awards nominated artist launched his solo career in 2019 and since then has released a series of seven singles, each with a nod to one or more of the many musical genres within the artist’s palette. With familial roots in both Germany and Latin America, the young musician grew up listening to everything from Latin Pop to Classic Rock and European Heavy Metal. He incorporates all of his many influences into his unique sound.
Maximilian Wentz has performed all over New England, first with his teenage Metal band ‘BunkerHill’ and in recent years as a solo artist. Since 2019 he has released 7 singles as a solo artist and has performed at festivals and numerous other venues from Cape Cod to Hampton Beach, and of course in his hometown of Boston. His new rock band project, 51st State, just dropped three singles in July. However, the prolific artist is continuing to release solo material as well.
“The Sixth” is the latest single from Maximilian Wentz, released worldwide to all major streaming services on Friday, September 120, 2021. The song is the first in a series of singles to be released from his forthcoming concept album “Mare,” inspired by the video game, “Little Nightmares”. The track opens on a beautiful melodic acoustic guitar. A hint of strings swell in the distance as the singer enters the mix with a soulful tale of loss and disillusionment. As the song progresses it gradually builds to an Art-Rock/Metal production featuring guttural vocals and power chords. Lyrically Wentz uses metaphors of monsters and shipwrecks to paint his dark scene.
