WRETCHED
"CANNIBAL"
VICTORY RECORDS

It all started out in 2005 with two guys from Charlotte, North Carolina, Marshall
Wieczorek on drums and Steven Funderburk playing the guitars in a band called
AND
SINCE FORGOTTEN
this was their first band. The band blew peoples minds and gained
a fan base during there tour on the East Coast. While they toured, Marshall and Steven
picked up a few new band members along the way, Joel Moore, Billy Powers and David
Briggs. As the band grew in popularity there was one major record label that took notice,
that was
VICTORY RECORDS based out of Chicago Illinois. In 2008 VICTORY inked
a deal with the band. The following year in 2009 they changed their name to
WRETCHED and released their debut album "THE EXODUS OF AUTONOMY". The
Deathcore and Metalcore band went on to make three more full length albums "BEYOND
THE GATE" in 2010 "SON OF PERDITION" in 2012 and the most recent album
"CANNIBAL" in 2014. Lyrical themes include death, apocalypse, society, war and
dishonesty of life. Through the years from 2005 to present the band had five previous
vocalist not including the current vocals Adam Cody (Glass Casket) and four other bass
players. As the band got bigger the style got even more aggressive. Fans of the
underground were buzzing about
WRETCHED with the lung popping vocals, elements of
Thrash, Death Metal and even Heavy Metal with technically advanced riffs, and blistering
pace drumming. What is not to love? Rising to the top as one of the best Deathcore bands,
of course it helps that they signed to a pretty cool record label too. Despite of all the
changes they endured, they never loss that heaviness, brutality and energy. Listening to
the
WRETCHED latest release "CANNIBAL" the music is like a fine wine it only gets
better with age. So this album is a must have for Metal heads who are in to
JOB FOR A
COWBOY, DARKEST HOUR
and THE AUTUMN OFFERING.
