Wretched - Cannibal

Who:  Wretched

What:  Fourth studio album of blackened-yet-flamboyant death metal. Released on Victory Records.

When:  June 2014

Where:  Charlotte, NC

Why:  Because this record is a thousand times more brutal than what passes for metalcore these days.

[The Radness Average (or star rating) is derived from assigning each song a number of stars based on a 1-5 scale, then adding the total number of stars, and then dividing that number of total stars by the number of songs on the record. A Radness Average of 4.0 or higher indicates a good or great record. A Radness Average of 2.0 or less indicates pure crap. Everything else is in the middle somewhere.]

Verdict:  I've seen this road warrior band twice in Austin just this year. Good and getting better. The next album is going to be something special.
