From the streets of Charlotte, North Carolina, WRETCHED has come to unleash their brand of technical death metal unto fans everywhere. Bursting with tight riffs and strong harmonies, they have taken the underground world by storm, unveiling their new take on old school thrash. Combining elements of heavy metal, technical death metal, European and melodic metal, this five-piece act has proven to crowds worldwide that WRETCHED is here to stay.

In September of 2005, drummer Marshall Wieczorek and guitarist Steven Funderburk got together and formed AND SINCE FORGOTTEN, their first attempt at a metal band. Gaining a strong following of locals playing the North Carolina circuit, Marshall and Steven were able to recruit Joel Moore, Billy Powers, and David Briggs and successfully tour the east coast. Taking notice, powerhouse label Victory Records offered the band a contract in 2008, and quickly released The Exodus of Autonomy, their first full-length record in 2009. Blowing competition away with their impressively methodical solos and stylized structure, WRETCHED received nationwide recognition. With a lineup change in 2010, WRETCHED now boasted guitarist John Vail and bassist Rico Marziali and felt confident these changes would propel them further into metal glory. Perfecting a new sound, they released Beyond the Gate later that year, pulling in more positive reviews than ever before. Implementing instrumental-based material into their death metal sensibilities, they were able to add to their already impressive fan base, showing the world they are not one-trick-ponies. Mixing up genres while still providing the scene with traditional growls and technical riffs, WRETCHED had opened the minds of music fans everywhere. Touring with the likes of KILLWHITNEYDEAD, DISKREET and HAVOK, they drew in thousands from the thrash, old school and hardcore scenes, creating a newfound sense of unison in the world of metal.

The success of Beyond the Gate proved too much for the band, who suffered another lineup change in 2011, creating what would be today's WRETCHED. With Adam Cody (GLASS CASKET) on lead vocals and Andrew Grevey on bass joining Marshall on drums and guitarists John and Steven, the group finally felt complete. Motivated by their new additions, they joined The Metal Alliance Tour alongside metal favorites, THE FACELESS, JOB FOR A COWBOY, DEVILDRIVER, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD and DYING FETUS to premiere their 2012 creation, Son of Perdition. Shocking the scene with their hypnotic instrumental tracks paired with heavy-hitting beats, WRETCHED had taken a very deliberate step away from traditional metal. Fans and critics alike have fallen victim to WRETCHED's charismatic discography. Outburn Magazine cited, "the briefest listen proves how dedicated these musicians are to their craft" providing solos that "demonstrate both proficiency and a devotion to melody". Committed to breaking down boundaries, they are constantly perfecting their sounds and adding even more energy to their already electric live shows.

Due to popular demand, the band has been on a consistent tour cycle, including runs with thrash and death metal legends DEATH ANGEL, SIX FEET UNDER, SOILWORK, CATTLE DECAPITATION and more. Committed to spending every minute doing what they love, the band plans to provide the metal scene with new material, fresh ideas and killer tours for years to come.

New album to be released summer 2014. Stay tuned.
