Release Date: August 26, 2016
Following in the wake of frontman Karl Simon's titanic and much-respected former outfit The Gates Of Slumber, Wretch - the power trio he formed with drummer Chris Gordon and bassist Bryce Clark, issue forth a fearsome salvo of cast-iron riffage and heartfelt traditional heavy metal heraldry.
Shot through with a steely conviction instilled by the trials and travails of a life lived without compromise, this debut is a fiery testimony to the power of doom metal played with heart and soul - possessed by the spirit of classic crusaders like Saint Vitus and Cirith Ungol alike, yet with an emotional resonance and vibrant character that marks Wretch out as leaders, not followers.
180-gram bone-colored vinyl housed in reverse-card sleeve. European import.
