Next review: » The Wretched End - Ominous
Released: 2001, Middletown Sound Recordings
Hailing from Deleware ,USA, THE WREKKAGE are comprised of 5 guys that have been called “gothic hillbillies” by some. Why? Well, their debut(?) CD is comprised of 9 tracks of southern rock which have a dark, at times trippy, sound to ‘em. The vocalist has a style similar to Geoff Tate of Queensryche. As for the music, a little more in common with a laid-back version of Molly Hatchet than Skynyrd. The First single ‘Behind The Sail’, a mid-tempo track with some great harmonies, would certainly do well on AOR radio. Metal it’s not, but a breath of fresh air in todays’s music market it is.
