THE WRETCHED END: New Track Stream Available Via Stereokiller

December 9th, 2010

Today Stereokiller premieres “Zoo Human Syndrome,” from blackthrash trio THE WRETCHED END.

THE WRETCHED END features ex-Emperor/ex-Zyklon guitarist Samoth, Mindgrinder/ex-Scum guitarist Cosmo and ex-Dark Funeral/ex-Aeon drummer Nils Fjellström. “Zoo Human Syndrome” comes off the band’s recently released Candlelight debut entitled Ominous.

Said Samoth of the track: “‘Zoo Human Syndrome’ is the last song on the album, and it’s one of my favorites actually. It’s quite melodic and atmospheric with a more epic feel. This one definitely has some black metal influences and I feel at this point that we’ll be working more within this territory for newer material. Conceptually, it deals with nature deficit disorder. Basically, it’s the soundtrack to zoo-like humans trapped in the digital chaos of the modern world. In today’s society we are stuck in small boxes, be it offices, shopping malls, etc. where we get hit by insane amounts of flickering lights of all kinds of so called ‘important’ information. We are removed from nature.”

Check out the track HERE.

THE WRETCHED END formed in 2008 as a creative collaboration between Samoth and Cosmo, who previously worked together in deathpunk project Scum. In addition, Cosmo played bass with Zyklon when the band toured Europe 2001 with Morbid Angel. The two have long spoken about an extreme metal project and thus, THE WRETCHED END was born.

Candlelight Records is very proud to announce the signing of THE WRETCHED END

June 12th, 2010

THE WRETCHED END was formed in 2008 as creative collaboration between Samoth (Emperor/ Zyklon) and Cosmo (Mindgrinder). Samoth and Cosmo have previously worked together on the infamous deathpunk project Scum. Cosmo has also played with Zyklon on bass when Zyklon toured Europe as special guest for Morbid Angel in 2001. The two have long spoken about collaborating on an extreme metal project. Most of the material for the debut album was composed throughout 2008, and by spring 2009 a full pre-production consisting of 11 tracks was recorded.

In the summer of 2009, Swede Nils Fjellström (Dark Funeral, In Battle, Aeon) was confirmed as the drummer. The drums were successfully recorded in Strand Studio, Oslo, September 2009. The album recording continued through the end of 2009 and was completed in the first half of 2010. The recording line-up consists of Samoth on lead and rhythm guitar, Cosmo on lead and rhythm guitar, bass and vocals and Nils Fjellström on drums.

The debut album, tentatively entitled “Ominous”, will be released through Samoth’s own imprint label, Nocturnal Art Productions and marketed and distributed worldwide by Candlelight Records. Album tracks include “Zoo Human Syndrome”, “Red Forest Alienation”, “Residing in Limbo”, “Human Corporation”, “Numbered Days”, “Of Men and Wolves”, “The Juggernaut Theory”, “Fleshbomb”, “The Armageddonist”, “With Ravenous Hunger” and “Last Judgement”. The album is scheduled for release fall 2010.

THE WRETCHED END can musically best be described as a “Deathrash”, taking elements from both Death Metal and Thrash Metal. Many of the songs are quite groove orientated, and also offer a melodic side. Influences range from old-school to a more modern Death/ Thrash metal sound.
