Metal Alliance Tour

Edmonton Events Center

Review and pics by Monika Deviat


On March 30th 2012 the Metal Alliance Tour stopped in Edmonton Alta., at the Edmonton Events Center. With seven touring bands and a local band getting the opening spot after winning a contest put on by Concert Works in Edmonton, you knew the sets were going to go by fast. The venue filled up right after doors open and there were line ups for the merch booth that lasted most of the evening. We were also informed we only had the first three minutes to get some photos so we did our best at being ninja photographers. Unfortunately, a lot of the bands had some pretty dim stage lighting. The sound, as well as the pit, were broken up by pillars spaced throughout the middle of the venue.

Wretched Announce New Album, Son of Perdition

February 2nd, 2012

Wretched has entered the studio to record their third full-length album, Son of Perdition. The forthcoming effort is set for a March 27 release and will be produced by Jamie King (Between The Buried And Me, He Is Legend, For Today) at The Basement Studio in Winston Salem, North Carolina.

Last year, Wretched solidified its line-up with the addition of industry-veterans Adam Cody (Glass Casket) and Andrew Grevey (Loculus) taking the positions of vocalist and bassist, respectively. Son of Perdition marks the first official appearances by Cody and Grevey since their inception into Wretched.

The band took “a huge step forward, musically,” confirms guitarist and one of the two founding members Steven Funderbunk on the new record. Funderbunk goes on to say, “Lyrically, the fans can expect an apocalyptic-type theme that portrays a very personal experience. This record will include some of our darkest and most mature material written to date.”

Son of Perdition also exposes a “more melodic approach to the Wretched sound,” says Funderbunk, ” A lot of the drums are harmonically matched with a lot of the guitar riffs. We also used a lot of cool chords we haven’t used in the past. It’s far more rhythmic and grooves more than our previous records.”

Wretched will support Son of Perdition on this spring’s Metal Alliance Tour beginning in March, hitting 31 cities across the U.S. and Canada.

WRETCHED Debut Music Video, Embark on Exodus of America Tour

March 18th, 2011

Near the beginning of the ‘Exodus of America’ tour, WRETCHED have debuted the video for “My Carrion.” WRETCHED may have begun as a jam band in 2005, but Steven Funderburk (guitar) and Marshall Wieczorek (drums) knew the first time that they played together there was a strong connection. Throughout the past few years, the band has progressed in awareness of music theory and composition, allowing them to create distinctive, quality music. “We always make sure our songs and music are structured very well and are carefully thought out,” states Funderburk, “we put feeling and soul into our music.”

This is no more evident than in their new video for “My Carrion.” The band brings vicious guitar solos, masterfully crafted drumming, and commanding vocals to the desert – allowing nothing but the ripping musicianship to shine. WRETCHED’s Beyond The Gate is available on Victory Records.
