U.S. blackened thrash trio Wraith have announced their forthcoming new album, Absolute Power. The new album is another deadly assault after their very successful full-length debut Head The Warning. The new album is faster, heavier, and meaner and a lot more pissed off than their previous releases. Absolute Power has a perfect blend of speed metal and thrash metal with a punk attitude. The album is nine originals and a Misfits cover that results in 28 minutes of no bullshit speed and thrash. The track Altered States,
Wraith is a three-piece blackened speed/thrash metal band that hails from Northwest Indiana. Matt Sokol, the founding member, on guitars and vocals. Mike Szymendera on drums and Chris Petkus on bass. The band has been compared to Toxic Holocaust, Midnight, early Venom and Bulldozer.
The debut was described as No bullshit thrash metal & nightmarish….the band has cleverly crafted together elements of punk, touches of speed metal, blasts of Motörhead, dashes of Venom and Bulldozer, sprigs of Teutonic precision, doses of black metal etc. according to Metal Forces Magazine
